Kathy Bates will take on Jessica Lange in ‘AHS’ S3

Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates

After a narratively tight but less delightfully crazy second season of FX’s American Horror Story (It could have used a pair of twins shouting “I HATE TREES!” That’s all, really.) the show is coming back for a third season, possibly featuring witches and magic. Here to reinforce that theory, Kathy Bates is set to join the cast as Jessica Lange‘s rival! Yay! Via TVLine

Oscar winner Kathy Bates is nearing a deal to join FX’s hit spookfest as a nemesis to Jessica Lange, TVLine has learned exclusively. Bates will play the best friend of Lange’s new character, who turns into her enemy. Details on American Horror Story‘s third season remain scarce, but series cocreator Ryan Murphy previously confirmed that Lange will play a “glamour cat leading lady,” in stark contrast to her gloomy Asylum wardrobe. Ryan also teased that the new season will be “more historical in nature” and take place in modern day. But just like past seasons, we will see different “time periods” and “there [will] also be different cities.”

Also returning this season will be Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, and Frances Conroy. Hopefully, Dylan McDermott will also be returning for some more naked sadsturbating, because that part was the best. THE BEST.
