With new characters constantly being added to the mysterious second season of American Horror Story it's difficult to keep up! Luckily for you we've been keeping a full record of who will be roaming the halls of the loony bin come October.
As fans of the FX show know, season one's L.A. Murder House will be a thing of the past...and so is the majority of the original cast. While the plot has been kept very hush hush, creator Ryan Murphy has trickled out a couple spoilers here and there to keep fans from going crazy.
Season two of American Horror Story will take place in a horror institution for the criminally insane on the East Coast. The new season will also break out of modern day, being set in the 1960's.
The only thing that season one will have in common with season two is a handful of returning actors. Those returning are Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe and Zachary Quinto.
New to the series this year is Adam Levine, Lizzie Brochere, James Cromwell, Chris Zylka, Joseph Fiennes, Chloe Sevigny, Mark Consuelos and Clea Duvall.
