American Horror Story Releases AHS: NYC Season 11 Eps. 3 & 4 Trailer

Two episodes into Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk's long-running horror series, American Horror Story Season 11 (AHS: NYC), and we're already hooked. So the last time we checked in, we shared our theory about "Big Daddy" not being a killer but a spirit of vengeance instead. Well, for this update, we're getting a few more clues that will help lead our theory to be either spot-on or a righteous cluster-f**k. Here's a look at the promo for this week's S11E03 "Smoke Signals" (directed by John J. Gray and written by Falchuk & Manny Coto) and S11E04 "Black Out" (directed by Jennifer Lynch and written by Ned Martel & Charlie Carver).

Zachary Quinto (Sam), Billie Lourd (Hannah), Patti LuPone (Kathy), Isaac Cole Powell (Theo Graves), Sandra Bernhard (Fran), Charlie Carver (Adam Carpenter), Russell Tovey (Patrick Read), Leslie Grossman (Barbara Read), Denis O'Hare (Henry), Joe Mantello (Gino Barelli) are set to star. In addition, Rebecca Dayan (Alana), Nico Greetham (Dennis), Matthew Bishop (Big Daddy), Lee Aaron Rosen (Captain Ross), Kal Penn (Mac Marzara), Kyle Beltran (Morris), Sis (Dunaway), Gideon Glick, and Dot-Marie Jones also joining the cast this season. Now here's a look at what's in store with this week's pair of episodes, followed by a new season trailer that was released last week:

In a featurette posted by Netflix in support of The Watcher, Murphy spoke with Naomi Watts, Noma Dumezweni, Mia Farrow, Margo Martindale, and Jennifer Coolidge about why viewers are attracted to the horror vibes that shows like these bring. Beginning at the 6:15 mark, Murphy reveals how he wrote a part for Farrow in the original AHS pilot, having been a fan of Farrow's work since Rosemary's Baby. And even though she wasn't taking any roles at that point, Farrow takes a minute to apologize for passing on the opportunity, saying she "regretted" the decision. From there (beginning at the 9:15 mark but more than worth letting it play through), Coolidge checks in, and that's where we learn from Murphy that they've known each other since the Nip/Tuck days. Coolidge follows that up by reminding Murphy that they filmed part of a previous AHS season at her home before dropping a friendly ten-ton hint that she's been waiting ever since for Murphy to ask her to join AHS.
