We are just one week away from American Horror Story: Asylum invading your living room with the season premiere episode "Welcome to Briarcliff" airing Wednesday, October 17 at 10 PM ET on FX. The network has released the first five minutes of the season premiere. The season takes place at the Massachussets insane asylum Briarcliff in the 1960s, although the opening scenes are actually set in present day, with a young couple (Adam Levine and Jenna Dewan-Tatum) exploring the abandoned facility.
