Hor­ror cast changes ahead as first sea­son ends

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TV -

THE stars of Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story, Con­nie Brit­ton and Dy­lan Mc­der­mott (pic­tured) are un­likely to re­turn to a new se­ries. Amer­i­cans watched the fi­nale of sea­son one this week. Co-cre­ator Ryan Mur­phy says the show will con­tinue as a sea­sonal an­thol­ogy, with a new story for each se­ries. ‘‘The (haunted) house is done,’’ Mur­phy says. ‘‘Ev­ery sea­son of the show will be a dif­fer­ent haunt­ing. That’s al­ways been the plan. Ev­ery sea­son of the show will have a be­gin­ning, mid­dle and end, and all new char­ac­ters and set­ting.’’ That doesn’t mean the cur­rent stars won’t be back. ‘‘We’re still ne­go­ti­at­ing with a hand­ful (of the cast mem­bers) about re­turn­ing. We’re also meet­ing with new ac­tors whom we’ve tar­geted roles for. I will say that Con­nie and Dy­lan will not be play­ing the leads of the show in the sec­ond sea­son.’’
