News out of Paley Fest 2012 was preempted by the announcement of two principal cast members returning for the second season of FX’s American Horror Story. Fan favorites Zachary Quinto and Jessica Lange are among the early confirmations for actors returning for another go round in the Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy creation. Lange will be playing someone entirely new, as was alluded to by Murphy during an interview last year. The new information, via EW, is that Lange’s character will be central to the second season’s plot line. This year, the horror-drama will be set somewhere on the East Coast in an undisclosed “horror institution.” If you’re new to the series, you’re in luck. We recapped the episodes of the inaugural season and have them available for you to check out. If you’re already a fan and are as excited as I am to see who else is joining the show, hit the jump.
