Jessica Lange starred in four seasons of "American Horror Story" and recently made a return to the FX anthology series last year. But speaking with The Wrap, the Oscar-winning actor said she'll likely never return to the show.

Lange was nominated for her performance in "AHS: Apocalypse," reprising her "AHS: Murder House" Season 1 role of Constance Langdon. Even still, she says she has no plans on returning to the popular franchise.

"I don't think so," she told The Wrap. "I did this because it was recreating Constance, which was— for me, it was a very important time when I did that first season, 'Murder House.'"

"But I don't think I would want to start from scratch and create a character," she added. "And also I think a lot of the actors that I was working with, people that I really love working with, like Sarah [Paulson] or Frances [Conroy] or Kathy [Bates]— I don't know who's in this new season, but I don't think it would be the same."

"AHS: 1984" Season 9 premiered Wednesday and is the first season to not feature Evan Peters. Sarah Paulson, who has appeared in every season of the series, is not a main cast member this time but did suggest she'll pop up.

Lange starred in "AHS" from Season 1 through Season 4, ending her run with "AHS: Freak Show." Over that time, she earned five Emmy nominations, winning for "AHS: Murder House" and "AHS: Coven."
