American Horror Story continues to revamp itself in its second season. The latest change? The show’s title!

FX announced Wednesday that the “new chapter” of the spooky anthology will be called American Horror Story: Asylum.

Series co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy explained the change in a statement Wednesday. “We picked Asylum because it not only describes the setting – an insane asylum run by Jessica Lange’s character which was formerly a tuberculosis ward – but also signifies a place of haven for the unloved and the unwanted,” he said. “This year’s theme is about sanity and tackling real life horrors. »
