It's a sad day for fans of American Horror Story as Jessica Lange confirms that she won't be returning to the show. In a new interview with Charlie Rose, discussing her current theatre role in Long Days Journey into Night, Lange talked about her run on the horror anthology series, saying that after playing "four marvelous characters" she will not be returning to the show.
Lange was absent from American Horror Story: Hotel - the most recent installment in the horror franchise - which was the lowest rated yet. Even with a star-studded cast including newcomer Lady GaGa, Lange's absence was severely felt as the viewing figures continued to fall week on week and fans took to social media, begging for her return.
Lange has had a celebrated career and has received multiple awards including two Oscars, three Emmys, five Golden Globes, one SAG Award and three Dorian Awards. She has also been nominated for her first Tony Award for her performance in Long Days Journey Into Night. Two of her Emmy awards were awarded to her for characters she played on American Horror Story.
Lange starred on the horror anthology series for four years, playing four different characters. Arguably the main reason for the shows success, Lange's characters varied in personality and fashion from year to year. During her time on the series she had several memorable moments, including a performance of David Bowie's "Life on Mars".
The future of American Horror Story seems a little uncertain now, but one thing's for sure: it won't be the same without the star of the show. It's been one hell of a journey! We'll miss you, Ms. Lange!
