Jessica Lange Explains Why Next Seaon’s ‘American Horror Story’ On FX Will Be Her Last, Highlight Hollywood News

In her exclusive interview, in EW on stands now, Jessica Lange explains in detail why next season will be her least on the FX supernatural thriller.   American Horror Story without Jessica Lange, it sounds depressing.  Though she has appeared in all three seasons, each year, her performance is fresh and engaging.  However,  Lange has confirmed that next year’s fourth season will be her last.


“It ends up being a lot of time during the year being committed to something,” admits the actress. “I haven’t done that for a long time. It’s like doing a stage play between the rehearsal and the run. This is a 6-month commitment every year. That will be four years in a row. I want to have more time to myself I guess. Once it’s over and I have a full year ahead of me with nothing to do, who knows? It might not have been the best decision. But I think four years doing something is a sufficient amount of time.”



Co-creator Ryan Murphy says he’s already begun planning Lange’s AHS swan song.




He’s already said that season four will not be contemporary and will either be shot in New Orleans or Santa Fe. More importantly, will Lange once again play the lead role? Says Murphy, “No but she’ll have this great juicy part.”
