American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that Dylan McDermott will return for the show's second season.
In the premiere season of the FX show, McDermott played Ben Harmon, the unfaithful and increasingly scummy patriarch who moved his family across the country to get away from his mistakes. Murphy, who tweeted the news, offered no details as to what character he would play, or how many episodes he would appear in (surprise, surprise.) This marks another season one actor who has returned for season two (other returners include Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto, and Sarah Paulson.) Connie Britton, who played McDermott's wife, Vivien, in season one, has said that she would love to return this season, schedule permitting. She is currently starring on the ABC primetime soap Nashville.
American Horror Story: Asylum airs Wednesday nights on FX.
