I have no idea how we lasted without Game Of Thrones for almost NINE months, but let’s begin by giving ourselves a pat on the back for staying strong. Now our reward is coming to us in 3 days, when Season 3 of the epic fantasy series once again takes over our lives. Nine months is a long time. We all could’ve carried and birthed a child in that time, making it more difficult to remember where we left the characters when Season 2 ended. Below you will find a quick recap to refresh your memory and then keep reading for some Season 3 scoop!
Kathy Bates will be bringing back her inner Annie Wilkes on American Horror Story Season 3 according to TVLine. Ryan Murphy has confirmed that Bates has signed on for the upcoming third season of the hit FX drama. Murphy teased fans at PaleyFest on Wednesday night, saying that Bates’ character is five times worse than her Misery character which is why she liked it. “When I pitched this to Kathy, her mouth was drop-jawed because what I was pitching actually happened,” Murphy continued. “It’s a true event. You’ll see.” We have American Horror Story vet Jessica Lange to thank for the inclusion of Bates in Season 3. “Jessica told me in Season 1 that Kathy was a huge fan of the show, so I just put that in the back of my mind,” Murphy explained. “When we were crafting this season, I found this character — a true-life character — so I called Kathy and said, ‘I don’t know if you want to do TV again, but I’ve got this character…’ She said, ‘I love you and I love the show. Lemme think for two weeks’ — and then she called me in an hour and said, ‘I love it! I’ll do it!’ It was great.”
Any ideas who Kathy’s real life Horror Story character could be? Madame LaLaurie anyone?

Weeds is officially coming to an end. EW.com announced that the series upcoming eighth season will be its last. Series creator Jenji Kohan says, “I’m so proud of what we do here and that it’s about a strong woman lead who’s really flawed. We get to do comedy right up against drama, which a lot of shows don’t get the opportunity to do.” The final season will quickly resolve this year’s assassination attempt cliffhanger, and fans can expect a time jump and a return to the suburbs. Beyond that, Kohan hasn’t yet decided how to conclude Nancy’s tale. “We wrack our brains every year for crazy cliffhangers and we’re trying to figure out how to top ourselves,” she says.
