Jessica Lange Really Didn't Like One American Horror Story Season, Despite Her Emmy Win
American Horror Story is returning soon for its 2019 season. A quick poll first: What is your favorite season of AHS so far? How about least favorite? Jessica Lange was asked to rank the seasons she was in, and she was game to do it, giving some surprising answers.
She was pretty candid about it -- it's not like she has anything to lose, she's Jessica Freakin' Lange -- and admitted one of the two AHS seasons to earn her an Emmy award was at the bottom of her list.
GoldDerby got the conversation stated when one of the editors shared his own personal ranking -- Asylum, Freak Show, Murder House, then the most recent season, Apocalypse. Jessica Lange followed by agreeing with most of his opinion:
The conversation then turned fully to Coven, which I actually loved, but neither Jessica Lange nor the editor seemed to like. Here's more from Lange on Coven:
Well, surprise, bitch on Coven. Jessica Lange won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role as Constance Langdon in the first season, Murder House, and then won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie as Fiona Goode in the 2013 series Coven. I'm surprised to hear she didn't like the story they were telling with Coven. I loved it, and the loved the later crossover with Apocalypse, which I partially liked as a full season.
It all started with Murder House, though, and if that first season in 2011 hadn't been a hit, nothing would've followed. I can't see putting Constance third on any list. What about Asylum? Would you put that first?
American Horror Story: Coven and Freak Show have been the most-watched AHS seasons so far on FX. That said, Freak Show rarely ever ranks high on fans' list of best seasons, like CinemaBlend's own raking.
American Horror Story: 1984, aka AHS Season 9, is next on the list. As the title suggests, it's going to be heavily influenced by 1980s classic horror slasher films.
AHS regular Emma Roberts will star in Season 9 alongside newcomer Gus Kenworthy. Billie Lourd, Cody Fern, Leslie Grossman, and John Carroll Lynch are also returning, along with more newcomers like Glee's Matthew Morrison.

Sarah Paulson will return for a smaller role in AHS Season 9, and Evan Peters won't be in AHS: 1984 at all. Jessica Lange won't be in the new season either, it appears, but she is appearing in Ryan Murphy's new Netflix series The Politician, which streams September 27.
American Horror Story: 1984 premieres Wednesday, September 18 on FX. And whether Jessica Lange liked them or not, it sounds like the Coven witches will be back in Season 10.
