It’s been a few weeks since American Horror Story: Asylum has signed off of entertaining America every
Wednesday night, but news of the already upcoming third season hasn’t quieted yet. With a flush of actors from this past season already confirmed to return, including Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, and even season one star, Taissa Farmiga, the star studded cast already is lined up to give us all quite a ride.
But the real question is, what is that ride going to be? What will be the new title to follow the AHS theme next year? After a few hints within the final few episodes, Ryan Murphy confirms, fans have already come up with a slew of theories to conjure up a possible location (three to be exact) to next season’s thrilling journey!
For me, and what seems like most others, season three will most likely revolve around a few broomsticks, maybe a cauldron, a brewing romance (Murphy promises a Romeo + Juliet arc), and the home of Saints. What does that all tie back to? Witches. And where better to do that? New Orleans, among the other two.
Murphy explained that unlike last year’s hint through Sarah Paulson’s character, Billie Dean, and then Dylan McDermott in the imaginary mental institution, this year’s hints came in a different form and in my opinion had to be in what truly jump started Mr. Murphy’s most recent gleeful turn in the industry: song. Playing the first song on the brand new jukebox in the episode, “The Name Game,” Sister Jude made sure to play none of other than “I Put A Spell On You,” and only to be followed by “Love Potion No. 9” in the next episode, which Murphy also said included another nod.
So although the general idea is said to be witches, along with other theories about it being during the Salem Witch Trials and also possibly include voodoo or even politics, Murphy claimed a few weeks back that some people were on the right track, but never truly hit it home.
Could it be that everyone is getting bits and pieces right, but like this past season, it’s just a huge combination of everyone’s theories? Hard to tell at this point, but do you have any ideas of what could be in store to make up another great season of scares?
In the meantime, relive this riveting season two promo to hold you over until more info is here to come.
