Warning: This article contains spoilers from American Horror Story's season finale.

Wednesday night, FX aired the jaw-dropping finale of American Horror Story. Earlier today, co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed his plans for the highly anticipated second season.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy participated in a conference call where he spilled the beans about the show's future. American Horror Story is getting a reboot!

The Harmons are no more. Following the deaths of Violet (drug overdose), and Vivien (childbirth), Ben met a similar fate by hanging. The entire family was wiped out leaving the audience wondering, "What's next?"

"Every season of the show will be a different haunting," Murphy said. "What you saw in the finale was the end of the Harmon house and the second season of the show will be a brand new home or building to haunt. Just like this year, every season of the show will have a beginning, middle and an end."

Murphy explained, "For season two, it was always our plan all along to have Dylan [McDermott], Connie [Britton] and Taissa [Farmiga] no longer remain." But he's open to the actors doing guest appearances. "Connie and Dylan will not be playing the leads of the show but I would love for them to come back and do something, a smaller part a cameo or something," said Murphy.

He also revealed that a handful of the show's original actors could return next year -- but as new characters!

Production on American Horror Story wrapped last week, which means the "murder house" is officially dead. Now the crew is off to prep another location where they'll tell a new terrifying story.

I, for one, do not like this idea. I am so invested in these characters! And they are all going away? Yuck. And I was really looking forward to having a show that I didn't miss each week..I'm a former "Lost" fan and miss the excitement of a new show every week. OH WELL.
