One of the staples of the American Horror Story over the three seasons the show has been on FX has been actress Jessica Lange. The Oscar and Emmy winning actress has brought serious credibility to the show which has taken fans and critics by storm in the last three years.
But the ride isn’t going to last forever and Lange is ready to leave American Horror Story behind. Speaking with BuzzFeed, Lang said that she’s ready to do one more season of the hit FX show and then she’s going to walk away.
“I’ll do one more season,” Lange told BuzzFeed’s Jaimie Etkin this week. ““That’ll be it.”
This falls in line with what we heard out of American Horror Story series creator Ryan Murphy back before the season 3 premiere. Murphy stated that Lange was all-in for a fourth season of the show but he didn’t really elaborate on the Lange’s future beyond that point.
Here’s what Murphy said earlier this year:
Every year, she says, “OK, that’s my last one.” But she’s already committed to the fourth series. I can see American Horror Story going 10 years, 12 years, 15 years. I think it’s limitless because it re-energizes every year, and I would love for Jessica Lange to be part of it every year.
For now though, Lange is leading the cast of American Horror Story: Coven and fans can live knowing that they will have at least one more season with the actress.
She says she’s going to leave after season four of the show, but as Murphy hinted at in his quote, only time will tell.
