The fourth season of FX's American Horror Story
is starting to take shape, and it promises to be the freakiest season yet.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted the official subtitle for the upcoming season: Freak Show
. The circus-themed installment will be another period piece (like season 2's Asylum
) and feature many returning stars in new roles.
According to EW
, the new season takes place in Jupiter, Florida during the 1950s. Jessica Lange will once again star, this time as a German immigrant who runs the last freak show in the United States. The group of outcasts will do anything to make sure the freak show stays alive. The roster of freaks includes most of the usual suspects from the American Horror Story
The cast of American Horror Story: Freak Show
will include Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Frances Conroy who, like Lange, have appeared in every season of the anthology series. It will also mark the return of season 3 additions Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett. EW also reports that Denis O'Hare (who appeared in the first and third seasons of AHS
) as well as season 3 addition Emma Roberts (who is engaged to Evan Peters) are also in talks to join the fourth season.
