"So thrilled to announce Lily Rabe is onboard for American Horror Story Season Three!" Murphy wrote. "So talented, love her!"

Rabe will join Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Jessica Lange, who also starred in the series' first two seasons. (Lange also took home an Emmy for her portrayal of Constance Langdon.)

Though numerous cast members have appeared on multiple seasons of "American Horror Story," they have played different characters on the seasons, which are set in a different environment for each cycle. The next installment will be a romance set in contemporary times.
