Jessica Lange has signed a deal to return to FX's hit drama "American Horror Story," according to Entertainment Weekly.
Playing the delightful Constance Langdon last season, Lange won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild award for her performance
Series creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk saw Lange's involvement in Season 2 as an ideal foundation to build upon. However, don't look for her to return as Constance, according to Murphy.
“We have designed the second season of 'American Horror Story' completely around her character,” Murphy said in an interview with EW. “Last year Jessica came in with Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott. This will really be the Jessica Lange show; so I’m very excited about it.
"We are designing this amazing new opposite of the Constance character for her. She and I have spoken about different things. She has a lot of ideas, and has a lot of input into her character.
“I really sweated this negotiation; so I’m glad she is firmly on board.”
In addition to Lange, Murphy said he has signed three more actors from Season 1 to return; however, their identities will not be revealed until Friday.
Production on Season 2 kicks off in late July for a mid-October premiere.
