Lange is returning for a second season on the FX series "American Horror Story," but this time with an entirely new plot and characters.

Nuns are now a thing of horror. "Jessica Lange returns, this time as a terrifying nun," promised the magazine's cover. They eagerly hyped a new storyline that's "a macabre mash-up of nuns, Nazis, aliens, a serial killer named...
