Ryan Murphy talks American Horror Story’s 3rd season

Soooo … everyone’s still watching FX’s American Horror Story, right? How weird was the last episode? How is Sister Jude still in that asylum? Where’d the Monsignor go? HOW COULD THEY KILL OF PEPPER, THOSE HEARTLESS BASTARDS?! *Quietly sobs into a half-eaten tub of ice cream.* I love my Pepper … anyway, season two is ending next week, and with Asylum out of the way, it’s time for Ryan Murphy to tease us with more on the upcoming third season. Via The A/V Club:

The anthology series’ third season will be all about “female power,” revolving around the “really glamour-cat sort of lady” played by returning cast member Jessica Lange, which certainly suggests a marginalization for man asses and the actors attached to them. Truly, the ass patriarchy has crumbled. Anyway, while once again being mum on details, at least until the months leading up to his spoiling just about everything, Murphy did confirm that Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson would also be back, and told reporters he’d like to do something “lighter” and “a little bit more fun” next time, compared to the drab, kitchen-sink drama of demon-possessed nuns, mutant-making Nazi doctors, and serial killer Santas that was Asylum.

All right, if I had to guess the next season’s theme based on those clues: Female power in the current era? I’m guessing something that will involve the current climate of misogyny and rape culture. The “glamour horror” alluded to in past interviews makes me think of something involving witchcraft, and if the current batch of rumours are to be believed, it’ll take place in New Orleans? Does that sound right? Either way, I am so ready for this. TAKE ME NOW, JESSICA LANGE!American Horror Story
