Fans are just hours away from watching the rebirth of American Horror Story, and while you’ll see a few returning faces tonight, there’s definitely more to come.
The latest? Dylan McDermott, who is set to return this season, per a Twitter announcement from creator Ryan Murphy. Last season, the actor played Connie Britton’s husband/the new owner of a haunted house. There is no word on who he will play this season, which takes place in a mental institution (hence the subtitle — American Horror Story: Asylum).
As mentioned, several actors from the first season of the anthology are back this season. Jessica Lange, Evan Peters and Zachary Quinto will all be seen in the first two episodes of this season playing characters unrelated to those they played in season 1. And Eric Stonestreet, who previously appeared as a tortured patient of McDermott’s character, is also set to appear in season 2.
Make sure you return to EW.com tonight for our exclusive post-mortem with Murphy.
