Kathy Bates is in talks to join Season 3 of American Horror Story. She is nearing a deal that will pit her against Jessica Lange’s character on the FX horror show, TVLine reports.
If the Oscar winner does the smart thing and joins the revamped season, she will play Lange's best-friend-turned-nemesis. Lange, the resident scene-chewer in the series, will play a “glamour cat leading lady,” according to series co-creater Ryan Murphy. Can you imagine the high-caliber bitch-off we'll see between these two? And no doubt Bates will bring a certain spook factor of her own to the show, especially considering Misery still gives us nightmares.

After the first season of the hit FX show, Murphy said that each season will be a totally different story using some of the same actors, but it different roles. While other details on Season 3 remain secret, Murphy previously revealed that it will be "more historical in nature" and take place in modern day, unlike last season which was set mostly in the '60s. But just like past seasons, we will see different "time periods" and "there [will] also be different cities." Other returning favorites are Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga and Bates’ former Six Feet Under bestie Frances Conroy.
While the deal (with the devil) hasn't been signed, you know that I'll be sacrificing virgins to Satan (or Ryan Murphy, same thing) to make it come true.

After revealing a set of short, mysterious, and creepy teases, American Horror Story: Asylum creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have finally unveiled a full trailer containing scenes and clips from the upcoming season, which will feature entirely new overarching themes – lust, fear, insanity, and religion – and a new setting in Briarcliff, a former East Coast tuberculosis ward that was changed into an asylum for the criminally insane in the 1960s.
Season 2 will feature many new as well as familiar faces – some Season 1 veterans are returning for another round, however as different characters entirely. Emmy winner Jessica Lange is back, this time as Sister Jude, a nun running the asylum. Sister Jude isn’t all prayers and faith, though… she seems to enjoy torturing (more Season 1 vets) Evan Peters' Kit, and Lily Rabe's fellow nun Sister Eunice. Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet will make a return to the series as well, but instead of playing a victim like he did in Season 1 (heeeeere piggy-pig-pig), he will portray a killer. Other returning players include Sarah Paulson and Zachary Quinto.
Some new faces that will be serving up scares, chills, and all around creepiness are Adam Levine, Jenna Dewan, Chloe Sevigny, James Cromwell, and Joseph Fiennes.
Watch the new trailer below, and hit the comments to tell us what you think. Are you prepared to be scared? Or are you going to be like me, watching the premiere through the cracks between your fingers? The new season premieres Oct. 17 on FX.
