We’re in the thick of enjoying season 3 of American Horror Story on FX but already fans and executives are looking forward to what season 4 will contain when it comes to furthering the action we’ve seen building through three seasons of the show. Earlier this week it was announced that FX has picked up the fourth season of American Horror Story which will air in the fall of 2014.
But the question now becomes, who will returning in the revolving door of actors the show has featured. Thanks to it’s fractured structure from season to season, American Horror Story has been able to feature the same actors each year but in different roles since the story isn’t connected.
Two new faces this season, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett, may now be a part of that revolving door and could be coming back for season 4.
American Horror Story series creator Ryan Murphy told Entertainment Weekly that he has personally asked Bates and Bassett to return for the fourth season.
I have approached them and they wanna do it. That’s very exciting when you can work with A.) actresses you’ve always idolized and B.) those two are loving this season. They love what they get to do. Kathy Bates sent the writers a basket of plush toys all in the shapes of disemboweled organs. It doesn’t get better than when an Oscar winner sends you a grab bag of stuffed pancreas to say ‘Thank you and job well done.’
Given how well they’ve been received by fans and critics this season, it’s safe to say that Bates and Bassestt are now part of the club, so to speak. But the duo will likely be back in season 4 which is just more good news to spoil American Horror Story fans this week.
