American Horror StoryThe first season of the hit television series, American Horror Story, debuted on October 5, 2011 and the timing of the second season debut is the only thing seasons one and two will have in common. Season one drew high ratings for the FX network and ended its first season as the biggest new cable series of the year. From the beginning, creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk planned for each season to tell a different story. Season one told the story of the Harmons family. That story is over. Actors who played in season one will return but as different characters, creatures, and ghosts in a story that takes place in an insane asylum.

Jessica Lange, who played Constance, the evil neighbor in season one, will return in another major role as Sister Jude, the nun administrator of the asylum facility. Zachary Quinto who played the minor role of Chad in season one, will be returning as Dr. Thredson. Evan Peters, who played bad boy Tate Langdon in season one will return as Kit (a hero in the second season story) while Sarah Paulson, who played Billie in season, one will return as Lana, a lesbian journalist. Lily Rabe, who played Nora in season one will return as Sister Eunice.

Added to the cast will be Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine playing the part of Leo, a husband in a couple known as “The Lovers”. French actress Lizzie Brochere will be cast as Gia, a femme fatale character described as “a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot”. Chloe Sevigny will play Shelly, a nymphomaniac patient at the asylum.

The first season was shot in a 100-year-old house in Los Angeles (with filming in studio sets that are exact replicas of the house).  In season two, the story will be set on the East Coast in an insane asylum in the 1960’s. Expect Nazis, aliens, naughty nuns, and a creepy character known as “Bloody Face” who wears the skins of his victims as a mask.

The popular title sequence, which basically told the entire story of season one in a 20 second clip, will be changed for season two but will be created by the same company (Prologue) that created season one’s unique title sequence.

Production and filming began in July 2012. American Horror Story: Asylum (season two) will debut on October 11, 2012 on the FX network.  See video promo below:
