‘American Horror Story’ News: Jessica Lange Confirms Her Future In The Franchise [Video]

American Horror Story was a powerhouse series in the ratings when Jessica Lange was attached to it in its first four seasons. But last season, when Lady Gaga joined the cast, American Horror Story saw a ratings dive, although not by much.

Now Jessica Lange has started to turn in performances in other great shows, which include her recent run on the theatrical stage, earning her a Tony nomination. But Jessica Lange’s days on American Horror Story might just be limited, with little to no hope of her ever returning to the horror anthology show on FX, as she disclosed in an interview with Charlie Rose for PBS.

It seems as though Jessica Lange’s time on American Horror Story might have been just what it was when she was there. The run may be over for her on the show, as Lange herself did not show much promise to ever returning to the horror series on FX.

Lange did, however, speak about her time on American Horror Story with great distinction and honor. With such fascinating roles on the first four seasons of American Horror Story, she was able to shine brighter than any other character. But when Lange was asked about returning to American Horror Story, the response was not so fascinating.

“No, I think, you know, I had four years with that (American Horror Story). Four seasons. And each year was a marvelous character,” Jessica Lange told Charlie Rose. “Everything changed from one year to another, which made it very interesting for me. But, no, I think sometimes you come to the end of something and it has a… natural end.”

But the thought of Jessica Lange being permanently gone from American Horror Story even seemed to elicit a negative response from Charlie Rose himself.

“But, I mean, people loved you in that,” Rose said.

“I know. I know, I know,” Lange replied, with a laugh. “It’s funny.”

Although Jessica Lange will likely not be back on American Horror Story any time soon, she will still be teaming with creator Ryan Murphy for his other show, Feud, according to E! News.

For those who are still waiting for the big announcement about the Season 6 theme of American Horror Story, then there has been some news on that lately, although shaky at best. It seems as though with two ideas floating around, the announcement of children to be directly related to the theme and Ryan Murphy previously stating that he would like to start doing two seasons a year, the next installment could be a double season that might just match up characters with a younger version in the fall and an older, grown-up version in the spring.

Although this news about American Horror Story has not been confirmed in any way yet, there is good reason to believe that most of it could be true, given the previous information that has been disseminated to the fans through Ryan Murphy himself.

There has also been some chatter lately that Bradley Cooper will be joining the cast next season on American Horror Story. But that news has never been confirmed, nor spoken, by producers of the show and there is really no basis behind it but an internet rumor. So fans can take that rumor at face value, much like they do when a celebrity supposedly dies on the internet.

Season 6 of American Horror Story does have a few actors confirmed for it, though. Lady Gaga has announced that she is coming back and so has Angela Bassett.

There are other regular actors from the American Horror Story troupe that have not confirmed their return to the show yet. Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson are the only ones that have been on American Horror Story ever since the show debuted on FX.
