We already know that Season 2 of “American Horror Story” will include some familiar faces from Season 1, but they will not be in the same place, at the same time, or playing the same characters.
Creator Ryan Murphy previously revealed that the sophomore season of the divisive FX series will be set in an insane asylum. But in a recent interview with Vulture, in which he discussed everything from his personal life to his other series “Glee” and next season’s NBC comedy “The New Normal,” Murphy spilled some more details about Season 2.
“The new season is set in the 1960s and Chloe Sevigny, for example, plays a character who was put in an asylum because she was a woman who likes sex,” Murphy told Vulture in the in-depth interview. “At the time, you were able to put people away for that. Another character is institutionalized for being a lesbian. To me, there’s nothing more scary than somebody coming to you and saying they’re going to take you away and put you in a mad house and you have no legal rights and there you shall stay till the end of your days. That is a real horror.”
Deadline reported that a new movie is coming for Zach: Karyn Kusama’s The Invitation, which start to be filmed this summer.
Luke Wilson stars with an ensemble that includes Zachary Quinto, Topher Grace and The Big Bang Theory‘s Johnny Galecki. Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi’s script sees Wilson invited to his estranged ex-wife’s dinner party. Over the course of the evening, he’s gripped by mounting evidence that something insidious has taken hold of his ex, and that she and her new friends have a mysterious and horrifying agenda.

What American Horror Story’s second season will look like is beginning to come into focus as co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed where — and when — the sophomore year of FX’s horror anthology series would take place.
After its freshman season ended with the deaths of its two lead characters played by Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott, the drama will be completely rebooted as an anthology series and feature a new cast, location and premise. While Season 1 cast members Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe will return, they’ll be playing the opposite of the characters they embodied in the first year of the FX series.
“[Season 2] is set on the East Coast at an institution for the criminally insane that is run by Jessica,” Murphy said Wednesday during a panel promoting the series at the TV Academy in North Hollywood.
Murphy had previously teased that a clue to the second season location could be found in AHS’ “Birth” episode and confirmed on Wednesday that the hint was “something that Sarah Paulson’s character, Billie Dean, says to Jessica and Taisa as she’s sage-ing the house and talking about places where evil collects: We talk about institutions and prisons and things like that. That was the clue.”
