I’m excited about this time of year because all the details about your favorite Fall shows start to come out. American Horror Story took the country by storm last year, and we’re eagerly anticipating what they have up for season two. Casting apparently has been well underway and actor James Cromwell will be joining the show’s second season.

The last big part in the upcoming second season of FX’s American Horror Story has been cast. Oscar nominee James Cromwell is in negotiations to join Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s hit anthology series for a big 10-episode arc opposite star Jessica Lange. Season 2 of AHS is set in an East Coast institution for the criminally insane run by Lange’s character. Cromwell will play the sought-after role of Dr. Arden, who works at the institution and goes head-to-head with his boss, played by Oscar winner Lange. Cromwell is the third big-name addition to AHS for next season along with fellow Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny and Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine. They’re joined by French actress Lizzie Brocheré and four other actors from Season 1 who, like Lange, will be playing new characters: Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Lily Rabe.

I can’t wait for the season two. This show is truly scary and really brings a subtle horror and mystery to television. It’s not too over the top. Are you excited for season 2?
