Looks like Lily Rabe’s about to complete an American Horror Story hat trick. Series creator Ryan Murphy tweeted last night that the actress will return for his anthology’s upcoming third season: “So thrilled to announce Lily Rabe is onboard for American Horror Story Season Three!” he wrote. “So talented, love her!”
Previously, Rabe played suicidal socialite Nora Montgomery on American Horror Story: Murder House and possessed nun Sister Mary Eunice McKee on American Horror Story: Asylum. She’s joining a third season cast that already includes returning repertory players Sarah Paulson, Jessica Lange, and Evan Peters. Murder House star Taissa Farmiga is in talks to headline the series’s next installment as well.
