While some may suggest the characters of the first three seasons of American Horror Story could be considered one big freak show, the 4th season of the of FX series will be specifically centered around a Circus Freakshow! That’s right, after many rumors and “will it or won’t it” speculation, AHS creator Ryan Murphy finally confirmed about a week ago that the new season will center the freakshow theme. Naturally some details are now beginning to leak, here are a few tiny tidbits….
“Freak Show will take place in 1950 in Jupiter, Florida and will feature AHS veteran Jessica Lange as a “German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S.”
Her “freaks” will be played by returning stars Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy. EW reports that Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are also in talks to return to the show.
The fourth season will feature 13 fear-packed episodes, but no release date has been set at this time. “
No official release date has been announced yet, but the pattern would be a late September to early October release! Who else can’t wait!?
