LOS ANGELES, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- "American Horror Story" co-creator Ryan Murphy told E! News Thursday Season 2 of the ghost drama will feature a mostly new cast and a different setting.

The FX show wrapped up its first season Wednesday and resolved story lines revolving around the Harmons, a family that moves into a haunted Los Angeles mansion and meets a grisly end. Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton played the parents and Taissa Farmiga played their teenage daughter. The cast also included Jessica Lange, Kate Mara, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe and Zachary Quinto.

Murphy told E! News he is talking to "a handful" of the Season 1 stars about returning for the next installment, but he did not name names.

"Some of them will be coming back. There will be familiar faces and also some new faces," Murphy said. "The people that are coming back will be playing completely different characters, creatures, monsters, etc. [The Harmons'] stories are done. People who are coming back will be playing entirely new characters. ... I would have them all back in a heartbeat. I think we'll announce the full cast and what the new storyline is going to be some time in February."

As for the house?

"What you saw in the finale was the end of the Harmon house," E! News quoted Murphy as saying. "The second season of the show will be a brand-new home or building to haunt. Just like this year, every season of this show will have a beginning, middle and end. [The second season] won't be in LA. It will obviously be in America, but in a completely different locale."
