‘American Horror Story’ Season Two Gets Art, Title

Creator Ryan Murphy has revealed American Horror Story‘s second season will be titled Asylum, as it will be set in an East Coast insane asylum during 1964.

In past interviews, Murphy has said Jessica Lange’s character will play a nun who is in love with her hunky boss, Dr, Arden, to be played by Ralph Fiennes. He told Broadcasting & Cable

We picked Asylum because it not only describes the setting — an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange’s character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward — but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and unwanted. This year’s theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors.

FX also revealed artwork for the second season: an image of doctors and nurses in a 1960’s operating room with blood splatters.

Casting for American Horror Story‘s second season has been slowly but surely beefing up. Season one cast members Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson will all rejoin the show; additionally, Adam Levine, Chloe Sevigny, James Cromwell, and numerous others will be added to the cast.
