American Horror Story Renewed for Fourth Season

Great news for all AHS fans, American Horror Story has been renewed for a fourth season by FX!

And, to add an extra dash of happy, Jessica Lange is set to return as well. Namely due to the fact that her contract with the show goes through 2014. I’ll just remain willfully ignorant of the fact that Lange has all but said she won’t be returning once her contract expires. I prefer to stay in happy-land.

The news that the series has been renewed isn’t all that surprising, especially considering the show’s ratings- this season in particular. As it stands, Ryan Murphy’s AHS is on its way to becoming FX’s highest rated series ever among the coveted demographic of adults 18-34. AHS Coven has surpassed previous season ratings in each episode so far, with episode 5 airing tonight, with total viewers up 77% this season.

Of the renewal, CEO of FX Networks John Landgraf says, “Every year they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. American Horror Story Coven is the best yet and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”

AHS Coven airs Wednesdays on FX at 10pm EST.

American Horror Story Gets Even Classier

Anyone that watches knows that only true thespians can appear on the show. Especially after last season. Sure, season one had some questionable talent on there (we’re not naming names!), but season two came bigger better faster harder and there’s no way in hell any fans will accept anything less for season 3. Series producer Ryan Murphy upped the ante considerably with his recent announcement and just watch as the ratings climb.

Enter Misery.

Enter Dolores Claiborne.

Enter Kathy Bates.

Enter PERFECTION.

No one knows what the plot is for season 3. No one knows the entire roster yet of all that are returning from seasons 1 and 2, and after this latest announcement, it is probably a safe bet to say that no one cares. If we can get just one scene between Bates and Jessica Lange, we are sold! We smell Emmy after Emmy next season!

American Horror Story: Asylum – Masterpiece Theatre

American Horror Story: Asylum – the latest episode? I have just watched the most enthralling hour of television in recent memory! Jam-packed from start to finish! I feel like I’ve watched every genre from the musical to sci-fi mashed up into a most glorious mix! It was like visual LSD! Four fuckin’ stars, two thumbs up, and give these actors Emmys!!

It’s the only show I watch aside from The Walking Dead. It’s always good but tonight was a masterpiece.

I’m expressly saying this: even if you’ve never watched a single episode ever, this is worth seeing. I’m watching it again it was that good! Riveting!

I feel like I just smoked a joint, did a line, snorted some angel dust , and smoked some bath salts simultaneously! Is rehab in my future?!!!

Jessica Lange was/is amazing and I hope she sticks around for season three. Really, a superb cast all around. Pepper stole the show for a few minutes, even. I’m glad that Ryan Murphy is writing less for the show this year. It certainly shows! I don’t want to give anything away, but go watch it, come back here and let CelebrityVIPLounge know what you think. I promise you will not be disappointed. Or your money back!

American Horror Story Is Headed East

And it looks like Jessica Lange will be lording over an institution for the criminally insane when American Horror Story returns for its sophomore season. According to the show creator, Ryan Murphy, the second season will also star some members of the first season: Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, and Zachary Quinto have all been named as being featured. Another interesting plot twist is that all of the aforementioned will return to the show in brand new roles, as season two will also revolve around a different era altogether.

This is my favorite show currently on television and I am looking forward to Lange returning no matter what role she will be portraying. I’m sure whatever Murphy writes up, she will be able to deliver with her celebrated gusto and hopefully he makes her character cray cray!

Also joining the cast will be The Voice coach Adam Levine, who has been cast as one of two ‘lovers’. So far, it has not been named who his lover will be, but everyone is speculating about which woman it could be. I remind them that this is a Ryan Murphy production, so it is not safe to necessarily assume that Levine will be locking lips with a woman. His lover very well could be Zachary Quinto. Or maybe it’s Jessica Lange!

She totally could cougar him!
