‘American Horror Story’ Season 2: Eerie New Promo Photos

3 years ago by  

If Halloween doesn’t provide enough creepiness for you in the month of October, you’re in luck because the upcoming season 2 of FX’s macabre spectral drama American Horror Story is coming, and the network has just released a set of new skin-crawling promo photos. Last season we were plagued with love sick ghosts, but this season is kicking it up a few notches by making everyone living and dead out right insane in the ‘Asylum.’

For the next installment of Ryan Murphy’s ghoulish anthology series, we jump from the LA “Murder House” and the ill-fated Harmon family to an East Coast mental hospital for the criminally insane, run by returning star Oscar-winner Jessica Lange’s new character. Not much is known about the new season, but it will feature returning stars Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe all in new roles, and will also take place in the different time period of the 1960s.

Joining the few returning cast members, this season will feature plenty of newcomers set to take on some interesting and disturbing new roles, including James Cromwell as Dr. Arden, the antagonist to Lange’s new character, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine as a half of a couple known only as ‘The Lovers,’ and sultry French actress Lizzie Brocheré as a ferocious and dangerous wild-child who will play another rival to Lange’s character.

As usual, Murphy is keeping all the big details on the upcoming season 2 to himself (specially what’s up with those creepy looking masked nun things), but here’s what he did have to say on what can be expected:

“What you saw in the [season one] finale was the end of the Harmon house. The second season of the show will be a brand-new home or building to haunt. Just like this year, every season of this show will have a beginning, middle and end. [The second season] won’t be in L.A. It will obviously be in America, but in a completely different locale

We picked ‘Asylum’ because it not only describes the setting — an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange’s character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward — but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted,” he said. “This year’s theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors”

Check out the creepy new season 2 images that would send chills down the bravest of spines:

  1. Is this show worth checking out? I watched the first part of the first episode and thought the acting was horrible. but id be willing to give it a chance if it gets better.

    • well at the end of the day if it doesn’t work for you then it just doesn’t work for you, and that’s ok. To each their own. I loved the first season, thought the acting was phenomenal. The second looks just as promising. It garnered something around 12 emmy nominees if that’s any telling point for you. It’s very creepy, disturbing,and the show does push the envelope and is not to concerned with being pc about anything. So if that floats your boat check it out.

      • Acting remains consistent throughout, which imo, is top notch. But indeed, each to their own. Their are certain respected actors for example that when I watch, feel completely contrived, regardless of the role.

        Perhaps it has something to do with being able to tell when someone is lying? Perhaps certain people ‘lie/act’, in a way to someone you know, so you can pick it, which comes off as bad acting.

        Just shooting the sheet.

    • I was skeptical going into it, not being sure how a horror tv show would turn out and I was very surprised. I loved the show and am very excited for season 2. I felt the acting was top notch though…

  2. Love, just LOVE the show. For a tv show, it’s quite amazing, creepy and thought out. I’m anxious for season 2, but also bracing for something really creepy. I do wonder if they can keep up the momentum of the story for the next season.

  3. I love the direction this show seems to be heading and these photos are incredible. The bleeding, black eyes image is hard to look at, and raises more questions to the motives of the white nun. A co-worker at Dish thinks that because she’s been featured so often, she could be Jessica Lange’s character. But with so few details revealed, it will be impossible to say until the show. I have never been so excited for a premiere; I already have a reminder set to program my Hopper. With 2,000 hours of recording space, there is plenty of space for American Horror Story, and all of my returning shows. I hope that all of these teasers and photos are leading up to a full trailer. It makes me a little nervous to think about what that could reveal.
