American Horror Story - Season 2 Character Profiles

I saw this stuff the other day but got caught up with other things but now here's a rundown of the new characters on American Horror Story's second season.

Jessica Lange – Sister Jude, a nun who’s “more sadistic than saintly.”
Zachary Quinto – Dr. Thredson, a psychiatrist who butts heads with Sister Jude over his forward-thinking ways.
James Cromwell – Dr. Arden, a doctor whose sadistic experiments created a group of mutated humans known as the Raspers.
Lily Rabe – Sister Eunice, second-in-command to Sister Jude.
Joseph Fiennes – Monsignor Timothy O’Hara, Sister Jude’s superior and the object of her affections.
Adam Levine – Leo, one half of a newlywed couple visiting modern-day Briarcliff.

Jenna Dewan Tatum – Teresa, the bride of Adam Levine’s character.
Evan Peters – Kit, a new Briarcliff inmate who is accused of murdering his wife.
Sarah Paulson – Lana, a lesbian journalist who is committed by her girlfriend after she “nearly exposes Briarcliff’s darkest secrets.”
Chloe Sevigny – Shelley, a mysterious nymphomaniac.

FX have been continuing with the trailers, including two new ones with the cast members themselves. I have to admit, if anything, this actually sounds and looks better than the first season. Ryan Murphy may be a polarising producer for many a viewer but the man does make some damn interesting television. This is one asylum I plan to make a trip to next month.

Season 2 Trailers:

American Horror Story's second season will air on FX from October 17th. An airdate for FXUK has yet to be confirmed.

It is so nice to finally get some teasers about the characters. A co-worker at Dish and I have been obsessing over the previous trailers, and we agree that this season looks even better than the first. I am particularly interested to learn more about Dr. Arden, it seems like he will be the perfect villain this season. I am so excited for The Asylum; I have already set a reminder to program my Hopper. With all of the shows I watch, I love that there is 2,000 hours of recording space. I can’t wait to see the characters in action, it seems like there is a lot of secrets behind the walls of The Asylum.
