Jessica Lange, shown here as Season 2’s Sister Jude, will be back for the third season of FX’s “American Horror Story.”

The scares will continue, as FX today picked up “American Horror Story” for a third, 13-hour miniseries.

The cable network, referring to “Horror” as a series of miniseries and each installment as a book, didn’t reveal details of the third outing, which will premiere in fall 2013.

The first miniseries was subtitled “Murder House,” and the second is “Asylum.” Each has a different setting and characters.

“With ‘American Horror Story: Asylum,’ (executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk) have raised the bar in every way from ‘Murder House,’” FX president John Landgraf said in a statement. “And their original idea — the notion of doing an anthological series of miniseries with a repertory cast — has proven groundbreaking, wildly successful and will prove to be trendsetting.”
