Jessica Lange prepares exit from 'American Horror Story'

It appears that Cloquet native Jessica Lange is counting down the chapters on "American Horror Story."

The Los Angeles Times reports that Lange is "coming to the end of acting" and will leave the series after one more season.

"I have a list: another stage production, maybe one or two more movies, one more season of American Horror Story ... and then that is it for me," Lange told the Times Tuesday. "Because I think that's enough. I want to go out with a bang ... or should I say, a scare?"

She also confirmed the move with Buzzfeed.

Lange is currently in the middle of filming her third season on the anthology series, titled "American Horror Story: Coven."

In it she plays Fiona Goode (pictured, above), the long-absent Supreme witch who returns to oversee a coven of young witches in New Orleans.

The Minnesota native was recently nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie for “American Horror Story: Asylum.”

She won in the Outstanding Supporting Actress category for the first “American Horror Story” in 2012.

Lange also has Oscars on her mantle: for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively, for “Tootsie” and “Blue Sky.”
