Fan: “Will there be ANY parallels to Season 1? Lines, paintings, details, anything?”
RM: “Not a single thing… except some of the actors.”
Fan: “I’m dying to know if Jessica Lange plays a villain or heroine…”
RM: “A little of both. : )”
Fan: “Are you planning on a Halloween/Christmas themed episode again this season?”
RM: “Yes! The second episode is our amazing Halloween episode.”
Fan: “Is Bloody Face a significant element in Season 2?”
RM: “Bloody Face is this year’s Rubber Man.”
Fan: “Is the ‘theme song’ from the opening credits last season still going to be used? It was perfectly eerie.”
RM: “We are shooting a new title sequence with the same team that did last year’s. The song may stay… not sure.”
Fan: “How many episodes will this season have?”
RM: “This season will have 13 episodes. 7 already written!”
