‘American Horror Story’ Season 2 Gets An ‘Asylum’.
FX announced Wednesday that the “new chapter” of the spooky anthology will be called American Horror Story: Asylum.
Series co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy explained the change in a statement Wednesday. “We picked Asylum because it not only describes the setting – an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange’s character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward – but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted,” he said. “This year’s theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors.”
