Season 3 of American Horror Story is shaping up to be a master class in acting: EW has confirmed that Oscar-winner Kathy Bates will be squaring off against Oscar-winner Jessica Lange in the third installment of FX’s horror anthology. This marks somewhat of a horror homecoming for Bates who won the Academy Award for her role as cray cray fan Annie in Misery.

EW previously announced that AHS season one alum Taissa Farmiga would be returning along with Lange, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, and Frances Conroy. Of season three, Murphy told EW, “What we’re doing is more ambitious than what we’ve ever done.” He added, “This one will be shot on location in three different cities in the country.”

The Bates casting was originally reported by TVLine.
