Fear not, “Horror” show fans. The devilishly entertaining Lily Rabe has signed on for the third season of “American Horror Story.”

Series creator Ryan Murphy Tweeted the casting announcement Thursday night.

“So thrilled to announce Lily Rabe is onboard for American Horror Story Season Three!” Murphy wrote. “So talented, love her!”

Rabe joins previously announced returning cast members Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Jessica Lange. Once again, the actors will all play completely different characters on the FX anthology series.

Actress Taissa Farmiga, who appeared in the first season of “AHS” but stayed out of the “Asylum” for Season 2, is reportedly in talks to join the third installment.

Rabe played the possessed Sister Mary Eunice McKee in “American Horror Story: Asylum,” and along with Jessica Lange, was easily the best part of the maddening season. On the debut season, she played socialite Nora Montgomery.

The third season of “AHS” is, of course, a mystery for now, but it reportedly will be a “horror romance” set in modern day.
