Zachary Quinto Probably Not Returning To 'American Horror Story' Season 3

Zachary Quinto's "American Horror Story" character Dr. Oliver Thredson a.k.a. Bloody Face was one of the sadistic stars of the show's second second "Asylum." But in an interview with HuffPost blogger Shannon O'Connor, the "Star Trek" star revealed that he probably won't be returning to "American Horror Story" for its third season.

"I haven't had any conversations about coming back, so at this point I don't think I will be part of the third season as no one has mentioned it to me and I know that they have been making other announcements for the cast. Which is fine, when I signed on for the second season, Ryan [Murphy] and I talked about it being a one year commitment and I think just where I am in my work and what I want to accomplish I think it is good to have a little flexibility and a little bit of freedom. So, at this point I don't really have any plans to go back, but from what I've heard and what I know is maybe going to happen a little bit, I am really excited to see the characters that Lily [Rabe], Sarah [Paulson], Jessica [Lange] and Evan [Peters] all play. I know Frances Conroy is coming back, which I think is amazing and I think it is going to be a different world all together and knowing Ryan as I do I think that it's only going to be more exciting and more surprising than anything we have seen so far. I look forward to watching it."

"American Horror Story" creator Ryan Murphy has been making a slew of Season 3 casting announcements on his Twitter account in recent months. In addition to re-signing Paulson, Lange, Peters and Conroy, Season 1 favorite Taissa Farmiga is also returning to show.

In a November interview with HuffPost TV, Quinto suggested he would be open to returning to the show, even though it appears he doesn't fit into Murphy's Season 3 plans. "I know Ryan well enough to know that he has very specific ideas and visions and a very vivid imagination," Quinto said at the time. "Now that [Season 3] is official, I'm sure that it's cooking in his brain, and if it involves me then I'll know that at some point and we'll figure that out."
