American Horror Story: Asylum
Are you ready to get committed? American Horror Story: Asylum will return to FX on Wednesday, Oct. 17 at 10/9c.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the second installment of the drama will move away from the ghost-heavy plot of Season 1. This time around, viewers can expect to encounter aliens, Nazis and a serial killer named Bloody Face. Oh, and did we mention ol' Bloody Face wears a mask made out of skin, a black nightie and opera-length gloves? Only Ryan Murphy could make this stuff up.
Details about the second season of American Horror Story, have mostly been kept under wraps. What is known: The second installment of Ryan Murphy's anthology series takes place in the 1960s at a Catholic Church-run sanitarium in New England that's headed up by Jessica Lange and Joseph Fiennes. (Also, this season will be fittingly subtitled Asylum.) What's not known: Pretty much everything else — until now.
