"American Horror Story" Season 3: Ryan Murphy hints at what's to come
By Jessica Derschowitz / CBS News/ January 4, 2013
Ryan Murphy is dropping some hints about what's in store for the next season of "American Horror Story."
The horror anthology's co-creator told Entertainment Weekly that he wants the third installment to have an element of "evil glamour."
"I sorta feel like for the third version I want to do something that's a little bit more 'evil glamour,'" he said in the interview.
Murphy added that there could also be young love, and a new setting.
"One of the things that I missed this season was I really loved having that Romeo & Juliet youth story with Violet and Tate [in season one]. I want something like that again and we're doing something like that in the third season," he revealed. "And we're contemplating shooting the show in a different place. We're contemplating shooting it in a place in the country where true horror has been. We've got lots of delicious plans."
"American Horror Story" renewed for third season
For those not familiar with the show, each season of "American Horror Story" has a different location and storyline. The first season took place in Los Angeles, in the so-called "Murder House." Season two, subtitled "Asylum," is set at a New England mental institution in the 1960s.
This week's episode of "American Horror Story: Asylum," titled "The Name Game," is said to contain another clue about season-three storyline.
"American Horror Story: Asylum" will conclude on Jan. 23. Production on the as-yet-untitled third season will begin this summer and will premiere on FX in the fall of 2013, with Jessica Lange and other actors set to return in different roles.
-- It's interesting to note that he mentions the 'clues' in the last episode, The Name Game. When I was watching the first thing that jumped out to me was, 'Is it me or are there a lot of references to witches, voodoo and the occult?' If Murphy really did put clues in this episode then he did so pretty blatantly, despite what he said. The references to witches, voodoo, etc. makes me thing it'll be in New Orleans, dealing with all that comes with that city.
After I thought about that, I was thinking another possible theory was the series could head to Salem and it's plot could be around the witch trials and what happened during that.
