Taissa Farmiga In Talks To Return To ‘American Horror Story’

American Horror Story

Now that American Horror Story’s season 2 is coming to a close, Ryan Murphy has given details about the next season. If you’re hoping it will be a continuation from the asylum season, think again. It’s brand new characters, with the same old faces. However, one old face from season 1 will mostly likely be making a return is Taissa Farmiga.

If you remember, Taissa played the daughter of American Horror Story alum Dylan McDermott, who inevitably fell in love with Tate (Evan Peters). Recently Ryan Murphy dropped details on the upcoming season, telling Entertainment Weekly, that there would be a youthful season after the drab insane asylum.

Apparently with the “female power” theme of the third season, there will be room for Taissa Farmiga. Murphy explained her possible reunion with the show:

“I missed her this season. There wasn’t really a role for her. I feel very protective of her and I didn’t want her to go back into the loony bin—it was too dark. So I thought well ‘I want Taissa to be one of the leads next year.’ I called her up and pitched her the character for the season and she loved it and she said, ‘Yes let’s do it.’ So we’re in negotiations for her to headline season 3.”

It looks pretty promising for Taissa and her fans. Season three will be all about the romance, and Murphy had previously hinted that the Violet/Tate storyline was his favorite.

    Taissa Farmiga was definitely missed this season on American Horror Story: Asylum. I understand why Ryan Murphy thought Asylum would have been too dark of setting for Farmiga, especially considering how her character died in the first installment. My coworker at DISH and I are excited to see what Murphy and his crew have in store for season three; hopefully a more cohesive plot will be part of the plan. I’ve got season one of AHS and Asylum on my DISH Hopper so I can re-watch them when I want to see something scary. Since I’m the only one at home who really likes the horror genre; I’m glad my Hopper can stream live TV content or recordings from the DVR to four rooms simultaneously. My family can watch what they want, when they want, without fighting over the TV.
