It’s done,” Flanagan told EW in October. What this means for the actors involved in season one is unclear. It’s possible that Macy and Flanagan could fill some of the new roles with cast members from the first installment of the show, à la Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Storyanthology, though there’s been zero indication that’s being considered. – Josef Adalian, Vulture » https://ift.tt/2T55ZY6
