For now, it's unclear when and how she will return to American Horror Story, but the actress is apparently as keen to make her comeback as Ryan Murphy - and us.

“I’ve been talking to her,” admits Murphy. “It’s always possible. I’m trying to deal with her play schedule. Jessica is always about the character. She’ll be back—she’s not gone forever. But that’s the fun and fresh thing about the show: sometimes somebody has to go away before you realize how much you miss them. She wants to come back we just have to come up with something.” Well now, this is all very exciting, isn't it? We already know Hotel will set in modern Los Angeles five years after Season 1, and as Marcy the realtor will be back, Jessica Lange well be back as evil Constance.
