The Politician: Jessica Lange to star in Ryan Murphy series


Jessica Lange is set to star in Ryan Murphy’s Netflix series, The Politician!

The Politician is adding to its cast with a Ryan Murphy favorite–Jessica Lange. Murphy is known for keeping it in the family so this recent cast addition to his Netflix series comes as no surprise. This announcement comes following his Walk of Fame ceremony where Lange and Murphy’s other favorites were in attendance.

As you may or may not know, Murphy recently made the switch from FX/Fox to Netflix. Fans can now look forward to more epic television shows from the legend himself! How exciting is that?! The Politician will likely be Murphy’s first Netflix series and was announced earlier this year.

Lange will be starring opposite Benjamin Platt’s character as a female lead. Other cast members include another Ryan Murphy favorite Dylan McDermott along with Mad Men’s January Jones. In addition, Zoey Deutsch, Lucy Boynton, Laura Dreyfuss, and Rahne Jones are all set to be series regulars.

We don’t know much about The Politician as details have been kept under wraps since the initial announcement. This includes details about Lange’s character (but we’re certain it will be just perfect). What we do know is that Murphy is collaborating with his O.G. pals, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan. Together, they always create magical television, and this Netflix series will surely live up to their reputation.

As far as the plot/synopsis of the series goes, it is said to be based on a character named Payton, played by Platt, as he aspires to be a politician. Assuming it has multiple seasons, each one will follow Payton running in different campaigns. Side note, if Platt is starring in it, could we please get a musical episode? Because that would be great.

Details for a premiere date have not yet been released, but we will be sure to keep you updated. Now, tell us your thoughts on The Politician and what you’re looking most forward to when it comes out!
