The addition of acting legends Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett to the cast of FX's "American Horror Story" this season has been a major factor in it becoming the show's most acclaimed and best-rated season thus far.
It's no surprise then that series co-creator Ryan Murphy wants them both back for the fourth go around next year. He tells EW:
"I have approached them and they wanna do it. That's very exciting when you can work with A.) actresses you've always idolized and B.) those two are loving this season. They love what they get to do.
Kathy Bates sent the writers a basket of plush toys all in the shapes of disemboweled organs. It doesn't get better than when an Oscar winner sends you a grab bag of stuffed pancreas to say 'Thank you and job well done.'"
