zachary quinto ahs 'American Horror Story' Season 2: Zachary Quinto returning as series regularOn the heels of the news that “American Horror Story’s” second second will focus heavily on Jessica Lange‘s character (who is not Constance, it’s someone new), Deadline is now reporting more good news – Zachary Quinto is returning, this time as a series regular.

Quinto was a recurring guest star on “AHS” Season 1 as Chad Warwick, one half of a gay couple that was murdered in the house. In SEason 2, he will be one of two male leads and will provide a nemesis for Lange’s character. The second season is set at a “horror institution” somewhere on the East Coast.

This is very exciting news, Quinto was a scene stealer in Season 1 and we’re glad to see he’s coming back. Check back here later for an announcement about which other three Season 1 actors will be returning to “American Horror Story” – they are expected to be announced at tonight’s Paleyfest panel.

“American Horror Story” should return to FX sometime in mid-October 2012.
