With American Horror Story: Asylum set to wrap up this evening, Ryan Murphy's attention is on the third season. We've already heard that Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters are on board, and the latest news is that Season 1's Taissa Farmiga is in talks to return as well. When talking with EW, Ryan Murphy mentioned that she's in negotiations to be a major part of American Horror Story Season 3:

"I missed her this season. There wasn’t really a role for her. I feel very protective of her and I didn’t want her to go back into the loony bin—it was too dark. So I thought well ‘I want Taissa to be one of the leads next year.’ I called her up and pitched her the character for the season and she loved it and she said, ‘Yes let’s do it.’ So we’re in negotiations for her to headline season 3."

While "in negotiations" isn't 100% official, it's a good bet that she'll officially join the cast in the coming weeks. We have a feeling this isn't the last of American Horror Story's previous cast members that will be returning and we'll keep readers posted on the latest developments. Here's what Murphy previously had to say about the direction the new season will be taking:

“I mean, I don’t think anything could ever be as dark as the mental health care system in our country. I sorta feel like for the third version I want to do something that’s a little bit more “evil glamour.” Just something that’s a little bit more…one of the things that I missed this season was I really loved having that Romeo & Juliet youth story with Violet and Tate. I want something like that again and we’re doing something like that in the third season. And we’re contemplating shooting the show in a different place. We’re contemplating shooting it in a place in the country where true horror has been. We’ve got lots of delicious plans.”
