If you’ve watched season three and four of this once insanely creepy and well thought out series, then you know it’s in serious trouble. The first season was a fresh take on American horror and welcome in millions of horror fans’ homes. By the midpoint of season three, it was becoming worrisome to me. Now, with the fourth season so ridiculous I refuse to even finish it, fans are bitching for good reason.
American Horror Story now sucks.
Is that going to change with FX CEO/bigwig, John Landgraf’s news? Landgraf spoke with TVLine and had this to say.
“One of the things I love so much about that is that it can be radically, radically reinvented in terms of tone, setting, period, characters, cast. I think there’s going to be an unusually large reinvention in between Book 4 and Book 5 relative to, say, between Book 3 and 4.”
Any mention of Jessica Lange returning?
“Ryan (Murphy) is really, really independent in how he makes these shows and what he does. So I know the setting, I know something about the characters and something about the tone and the time period, but I don’t actually know the cast yet.”
So, basically, he knows the setting, tone, and a thing or two about the characters. Let’s hope he also knows good television when he hears it. American Horror Story Season Five will presumably return in October.
