American Horror Story darling Lily Rabe will have another role in the anthology’s third season, reportedly set to be all about girl power.
Rabe, with two memorable characters, trampy possessed nun Sister Mary Eunice and grieving ghost Nora Montgomery on her résumé, will be joining the series’ confirmed actors Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, according to Entertainment Weekly. All four series vets had major roles in last season’s Asylum that took place in the 1960s and ended Jan. 23.
Creator Ryan Murphy tweeted the news of Rabe’s return last night:
So thrilled to announce Lily Rabe is onboard for American Horror Story Season Three! So talented, love her!

Rabe’s new role in the women-centric new season is being kept secret for now, though, according to AV Club.
Witches are rumored to be the main plotline of the next season, TV Line claimed.
Season 1 star Taissa Farmiga is also in talks to return for the horror drama’s next season, EW reports.
