'American Horror Story' Season Three: Creator Ryan Murphy Sees No End for Series
Great news for "American Horror Story" fans.
In an interview on "The Writer's Room," co-creator and producer Ryan Murphy revealed that he plans to keep making the horror anthology as long as FX lets him. Each season of the show presents an entirely new story with different characters, while reusing some of the same actors and introducing new ones.
"I don't see an end to it," Murphy said. "I love it. I love the whole process of it. I feel like it has a great renewal to it. I love the dream time of it, you know when you're ready to sort of come up with a new one...I really feel like, for me, it's something that I would love to keep doing as long as they let me."
The 47-year-old producer, who created FX's "Nip/Tuck" and "Glee" along with fellow producer Brad Falchuk, recently told Deadline that he wanted to make Season 3 of "American Horror Story" about the Charles Manson case but decided it wasn't respectful to the victims.
"So I went to the other idea, which was New Orleans witches that I've always been obsessed with," he told Deadline. "We might go back to the Manson thing in some regard one day. We spend a lot of time specifically trying to get the look and tone of it right. Every year has a different tone."
The second season's "American Horror Story: Asylum" dealt with horrific ordeals in a 1960s Massachusetts insane asylum and the first season's "American Horror Story" focused on murders in a haunted house.
"Asylum" garnered the most Emmy nominations this year with 17, including acting nominations for Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson and James Cromwell. It was also nominated for Outstanding Miniseries or Movie.
Season 3, entitled "American Horror Story: Coven," will bring back Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, and introduce Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe. FX recently released the synopsis and a new promo for the third season.
"American Horror Story: Coven" premieres Oct. 9.
Murphy's other projects have included "The Glee Project" and "The New Normal," both of which were recently canceled. In April, Deadline reported that HBO gave a pilot order for Murphy's new provocative sexuality drama "Open," which begins filming this Fall. Anna Torv, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Scott Speedman and Wes Bentley have joined the cast.
Murphy will also serve as the director of the upcoming American drama film "The Normal Heart," which is based off the 1985 play of the same name. The film, which will be released sometime in 2014, stars Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Taylor Kitsch, Matt Bomer and Alfred Molina.
