Lange says she will depart American Horror Story after show's fourth season

Jessica Lange plans to exit FX's American Horror Story after the show's fourth season.

The actress has starred on three seasons of the Ryan Murphy-created drama, which has seen her win one Golden Globe and one Emmy award.

Lange currently stars as a New Orleans witch in American Horror Story: Coven, alongside Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates, as well as series regulars Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga and Sarah Paulson.

In a recent interview, Lange told BuzzFeed of her involvement with the show: "I'll do one more season... That'll be it."

However, Murphy seems optimistic that she will stay on the show longer, telling The Hollywood Reporter: "Every year, she says, 'OK, that's my last one'. But she's already committed to the fourth series. I can see American Horror Story going 10 years, 12 years, 15 years.

"I think it's limitless because it re-energises every year, and I would love for Jessica Lange to be part of it every year."
