John Carroll Lynch (Fargo) has been cast as a series regular opposite Amy Forsyth in the second installment of Syfy’s anthology horror series Channel Zero: The No-End House, set for premiere in 2017.

Inspired by Brian Russell’s “Creepypasta” tale, Channel Zero: The No-End House tells the story of Margot Sleator (Forsyth), a young woman who visits the No-End House, a bizarre house of horrors that consists of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms. When she returns home, Margot realizes everything has changed. Lynch plays John Sleator, Margot’s (Forsyth) father, whose whole world is his family, but below the surface he is a troubled and complicated man. Jeff Ward also stars.

Repped by Suskin Management, Lynch recurred recently in American Horror Story: Hotel as John Wayne Gacy and previously in AHS: Freak Show as Twisty the Clown. He recently directed his first feature film, Lucky, which is set to be released in 2017.

Channel Zero: The No-End House follows the first installment, Channel Zero: Candle Cove, which premieres October 11.
