Jessica Lange was the cornerstone casting of the first four seasons of anthology horror series “American Horror Story” and briefly popped up in the eighth season reprising her first season role. During her time she won much acclaim and multiple awards for her work.
Ahead of the season premiere of the ninth season titled “American Horror Story: 1984,” the actress tells The Wrap that she doubts she will ever return to the Ryan Murphy-produced franchise:
“I don’t think I would want to start from scratch and create a character, and also I think a lot of the actors that I was working with, people that I really love working with, like Sarah [Paulson] or Frances [Conroy] or Kathy [Bates] – I don’t know who’s in this new season, but I don’t think it would be the same.
We were like a troupe. We were like the old-fashioned kind of troupe of actors, just moving from one part to the other. And that was part of what I really loved about doing it was you’d come back with a whole different story, different characters, but the same actors year after year. And that was wonderful. But I don’t think that would be the case now and I don’t think I would want to start over from scratch really. I don’t think that will happen.”
Emma Roberts, Cody Fern, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, and John Carroll Lynch are all set to return to the newest installment and are joined by “Glee” veteran Matthew Morrison, “Pose” regular Angelica Ross, Olympic gold medalist Gus Kenworthy, Zach Villa and DeRon Horton.
Set in the summer of 1984, five friends escape Los Angeles to work as counselors at Camp Redwood. As they adjust to their new jobs, they quickly learn that the only thing scarier than campfire tales is the past coming to haunt you. Check out some new posters released today for the new season:
