American Horror Story has had more revealed about its upcoming second season.

The hit first season about a family living in a haunted house starred Jessica Lange, who earned a Golden Globe for her performance as Constance Langdon, and featured Zachary Quinto in guest appearances as a former owner of the house.

It was announced earlier in the week that not only will Lange be returning as the main character of the series, but so will Quinto, also as a lead.

At PaleyFest '12 on Friday (March 2), producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk revealed more about what's to come. According to TV Line, they confirmed that also returning to the show are Evan Peters as Tate, Lily Rabe as ghost Nora, and Sarah Paulson as psychic Billie Dean. Murphy said all the actors will "be playing the opposite of what they played".

It was also revealed that the new series will be set on the East Coast and involve a mental institution, and that ghosts will not figure as prominently in the plot.

"A supernatural element will always be a part of the show," Murphy said, "but we're trying to do something more historically accurate."

Season two of American Horror Story will air on FX later this year.
