“I just pitched to Fox the second season. Everybody loves the idea of it, and the conceit is three or four of the cast members [from season 1] survive. [And in the] second season, the survivors go off to a new venue — a horror based venue — and then they have to fight a new killer, a new villain, a new threat.”
FOX has reportedly ‘approved’ Murphy’s vision for Season 2, but as ever the Cancellation Reaper remains on high alert after the show’s ratings struggles.
Along with the three of four original cast members that will survive Season 1, Murphy revealed that 10 additional characters will enter the fray in Season 2.
“I’ve already started to meet those cast members,” he said, while revealing that Lady Gaga has shown interest in appearing in the second season, with an unidentified male pop star also in talks.
