Daytime TV's favorite husband just got a little scarier.

Diehard fans of American Horror Story might want to mentally pack for chillier weather in the fall – say, a sweater and a straitjacket – because the second season of the shiver-inducing FX series will move the action from sunny southern California to the East Coast ... and take place in an asylum run by Jessica Lange.
"[Season 2] is set on the East Coast at an institution for the criminally insane that is run by Jessica," the show's creator, Ryan Murphy, said during a panel discussion on Wednesday.
Lange won an Golden Globe and a SAG Award for playing the nefarious neighbor to Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton in season one.

His relationship with model Anne V may have fizzled, but Adam Levine has a hot new gig to keep him busy.
The Maroon 5 frontman and judge on The Voice put rumors to rest and confirmed that he will be joining the cast of American Horror Story.
"It is the truth," Levine, 33, told E! News's Ryan Seacrest. "I don't know how much I can divulge, because [series co-creator] Ryan [Murphy] is very under wraps."

American Horror Story fans, rejoice: Jessica Lange is returning for season two.
But she's not reprising her role of the delightfully spooky Constance Langdon. Instead, the actress (who won a Golden Globe and a SAG award for the part) will play an entirely new role, EW.com reports.
"We have designed the second season of American Horror Story completely around her character," says creator Ryan Murphy. "This will really be the Jessica Lange show so I'm very excited about it."

They certainly present a contrast, but sisters Rooney and Kate Mara are both soaking up the spotlight these days.
Brunette Rooney is currently promoting her much-anticipated film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which hits theaters Dec. 21, while auburn-haired Kate has created buzz with her role in the popular FX show American Horror Story.
Rooney, 26 and Kate, 28, were photographed Tuesday at the afterparty for the New York Premiere of Dragon Tattoo. Rooney, dressed in black, has just a tinge left of the extreme makeover she underwent to play the role of wiry, moody hacker Lisbeth Salander.

It's got six bedrooms, five baths, and – according to TV lore – a whole lot of ghosts in the basement.
The Los Angeles mansion that's a star in its own right on the creepy FX hit American Horror Story will likely go up for sale in 2012, and for a mere $17 million, you can own the most awesome piece of show memorabilia around.
The AHS house, a.k.a. the Alfred F. Rosenheim Mansion, is a three-story home plus a grand ballroom (formerly a chapel) that features Tiffany stained glass widows and light fixtures – just as one of the deceased characters points out on the show.

Evan Peters was right: things are just getting worse for the characters on American Horror Story.
The actor who plays Tate gave PEOPLE that teaser last month, and he definitely wasn't kidding. Wednesday night's episode could easily be deemed the most disturbing thus far, thanks to a series of shocking plotlines. But was it the creepiest episode yet?
Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Don't look to American Horror Story star Evan Peters for hints about what's to come on the ubër spooky series.
"I always just tell people, 'You've got to watch the show,' " says the actor, 24, who plays Tate, a troubled soul who slaughtered his high school classmates and – as of last week's episode – doesn't know he's dead, too. But Peters sympathizes with fans who are left wanting more each week. The cast members, who are currently still shooting season one, are just as eager for answers.
"It's the same for us – we're like, 'Give me the next script! Let's go, let's read!'" he says with a laugh. "We're a couple episodes ahead of viewers. I know what they're going through, it sucks. But I'm on lockdown. They'll find out."
The one thing he will reveal about what's to come the scary FX show? "It only gets worse."

For years, Connie Britton has been hard at work on her acclaimed show Friday Night Lights and most recently on the new hit American Horror Story.
But the actress, 44, has just been cast in her most rewarding role yet: Mom. She's adopted a 9-month-old baby boy from Ethiopia, Britton tells PEOPLE exclusively.
After a three-year-long adoption process, the actress's dream of motherhood came true about a week ago, after she returned from the African country with her son Yoby – a nickname for Eyob, his given name.
"I am thanking my lucky stars every day," Britton, 44, tells PEOPLE.

For me, a truly engrossing TV show these days is one that I'll actually sit down to watch in real time, DVR-free. And FX's spooky new Wednesday night series American Horror Story might just fit the bill.
If I didn't have to watch it during the daytime, that is.
Yes, the show is that scary. But there's also plenty more to it. Henceforth, three reasons to watch ... with the lights on. (Caution: potential spoilers ahead!)
