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."

"Dream big, dream fierce." The real-life ladies of The Help would have agreed with Viola Davis, it's worth it.
Accepting the trophy for female actor in a leading role for the period drama, Davis told the audience gathered at L.A.'s Shrine Exposition Center for Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards: "What is there [in life] but a dream. You can't trade in your dream for another dream. I am so proud to be an actor."
It's an appropriate motto for a cast who were also recognized for their work in the film as an ensemble, the top honor of the night.

Actress Jessica Lange and her longtime partner, playwright and actor Sam Shepard, ended their relationship almost two years ago, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.
The couple, who have been together since 1982, have two children, Hannah and Samuel, together.
"They both are pursuing independent lives," says a source.
Lange, 62, who stars as Constance in FX's hit series, American Horror Story, was just nominated for a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award. She will be seen next in The Vow, costarring Rachel McAdams, in February.
A rep for Lange confirms the split – but has no additional comment. Shepard's rep could not be reached.

Comedy rocked once again at the 61st Primetime Emmys, where 30 Rock was named top sitcom series and its lead male star, Alec Baldwin, outstanding actor in a comedy series. Both also took the titles last year.
"That was a real nail biter," said the show's creator, producer and star Tina Fey when she accepted the award toward the end of Sunday night's ceremony. She also thanked NBC for keeping the show on the air, even though, as she pointed out, it is more expensive than a talk show.
For the second consecutive year, AMC's Mad Men, a period '60s look at Madison Avenue's advertising world and those who worked in it, was named outstanding drama series.
