We have the latest teaser trailer for American Horror Story: Asylum, along with the official premiere date. We knew that the new season (or cycle, as they are calling it) would return in October, but you can set your calendars for Wednesday, October 17th on FX. American Horror Story: Asylum will get an extra episode this time around, for a total of 13 episodes.

The new season is currently filming and features a brand new story set at an institution for the criminally insane during the 1960′s. Adam Levine, Chloe Sevigny, James Cromwell, Lizzie Brocheré, Jenna Dewan, Clea Duvall, Franka Potente, Chris Zylka, Britne Oldford, Mark Consuelos and Joseph Fiennes make up the new cast, with Season 1 actors Jessica Lange, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Even Peters, and Lily Rabe all returning as new characters.
