Polarizing as it was, the first season of American Horror Story was unlike anything audiences have seen on television recently. To maintain this void of familiarity, the FX series' upcoming second season is changing things up entirely. That means the show will be embracing a new setting, new characters and a whole new story. But there will be something AHS fans will recognize: the cast. Although their characters will all be completely different, several of the actors and actresses from Season 1 will be returning to the show once it comes back to FX. Hollywood.com has learned that one of the returning players will be Zachary Quinto, who will be upgraded to a series regular.
