‘American Horror Story’ season 3 begins filming in New Orleans this summer

According to star Frances Conroy, American Horror Story will begin filming season 3 in New Orleans this summer.

The actress, who played the angel of death in American Horror Story: Asylum and appeared as maid Moira O’Hara in season one, recently confirmed production is gearing up for season 3 and she will be a part of it.

“It’s going to start up again in July or August in New Orleans, I’ll be part that and will have a fairly substantial part in it,” Conroy said. “I’ll be in 10 of the episodes of what I think will be a 13-part season.”

The actress added, “I’m waiting to see what’s written to see who I’ll be playing. I haven’t seen any scripts yet, so all I know is that it’s going to be in New Orleans and who will be involved. Beyond that, it’s a matter of waiting for the wonderful writers to create the next world for us to inhabit.”

In addition to Conroy, AHS season 3 will also bring back Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, and new addition Kathy Bates.

American Horror Story executive producer Ryan Murphy has been tight-lipped about the third season, but he did say, “I sorta feel like for the third version I want to do something that’s a little bit more ‘evil glamour’ … We’re contemplating shooting [Season 3] in a place in the country where true horror has been. We’ve got lots of delicious plans.”

We can’t wait to see those plans come to fruition.

  1. I am so glad that it is going to take place in New Orleans. I am so excited!!! I wanted this show to do a season in New Orleans, so now I am very happy. Still wish they would bring Zach (Quinto) back, but I am very fond of Jessica Lange as well and am very excited to see the new character she will play in the third season. Also happy to hear that Evan (Peters) and Lily (Rabe) will be returning as well. LOVE LOVE LOVE AMERICAN HORROR STORY!!! <3

  2. Love all the women cast so far and Evans great, but w Dylan and James Cromwell getting other roles and ZQ probably not coming back, I’m nervous the male cast could be seriously lacking especially since this seasons about girl power. How can there be girl power without some men for them to triumph over. Bring back Denis O’Hare and Ian McShane, and give us someone new and nice to look at and this season will be perfect…Oh and if they go w the lalaurie house New Orleans story I agree they need some good African American actors/actresses. Could be a chance for britne oldford to shine more if they brought her back and Alfre Woodard would be an excellent addition

  3. Loving everything about American Horror Story filming in New Orleans, however, Kathy Bates coming on board makes it even better for me. Ms. Bates is such an inspiration to me, I just love her.
