American Horror Story Asylum Teases: Who's The New Rubber Man?

at . Comments

This much we know about American Horror Story Season 2:

  • It will be titled American Horror Story: Asylum.
  • It will be set in the 1960s at a mental asylum run by the Catholic Church.
  • Jessica Lange will portray the lead of the series once again, a nun in charge of an eccentric group of patients.

But Ryan Murphy took to Twitter this week and delivered a handful of new teases, starting with what the creator has dubbed "this year's Rubber Man." Say hello to Bloody Face, fans!

He/It was teased earlier this summer when Adam Levine posted the following photo online:

Among other tidbits provided by Murphy:

Those who missed American Horror Story Season 1 needn't worry. "It's a completely new story," he wrote, adding that "except some of the actors," there's "not a single thing" similar between the storylines.

Will Lange portray a villain or heroine, a fan asked Murphy. A little of both, he replied.

The second episode of the season will be Halloween-themed. With October 31 falling in a Wednesday, it's safe to assume the new season will premiere on October 24.

There will be a new opening title sequence.

Season 2 will be comprised of 13 episodes, seven of which are already written.

American Horror Story Quotes

I am the queen of every hive. I am the fire on every hill. I am the shield over every head. I am the spear of battle. Who but I am both the tree and the lightning that strikes it?

The Butcher

We have two selves. One the world needs us to be, compliant, and the shadow. Ignore it and life is forever suffering.
