Oscar-Winning Actress Plans to Bail Out on 'American Horror Story' Buzzfeed, THR
A two-time Academy Award winner appears to have had enough of FX's "American Horror Story." Buzzfeed reports that actress Jessica Lange says the fourth season of the drama will be her last.
The drama, which is currently in its third season, now stars Lange as Fiona Goode, the strongest witch in her generation.
“I’ll do one more season,” Lange told the publication. "That'll be it."
But the article mentions another interview with "American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy, who said, "Every year, she says, 'OK, that's my last one.'"
Lange, who won Oscars for "Tootsie" in 1983 and "Blue Sky" in 1995, said the current season of the show, "American Horror Story: Coven," is lighter than the previous season, which was called "American Horror Story: Asylum."
"But I think this season was a deliberate attempt to lighten it and add some humor. And I’m not against humor; my sensibilities just always tend toward the more tragic or the darker," Lange said.
Separately, the show is shaping up to be a huge ratings success for FX, with both episodes of the latest season ranking in the network's top three telecasts ever, before even Live+Seven data is available, The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports.
