The first details have been released about the upcoming Season 4 of American Horror Story. Co-creator Ryan Murphy announced via Twitter that the new season will be titled American Horror Story: Freak Show, which means a carnival setting of sorts. If you’ve seen the 1932 Tod Browning classic, Freaks, then you know this season could be a shocking ride.
Entertainment Weekly have unearthed some additional details about the new season:
Set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950, Freak Show finds Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. Her group of “unusuals”? Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued; Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are also in talks to return. Freak Show’s 13 episodes will track this group as they do anything to keep their business around.
Last year Jessica Lange announced that her last appearance on American Horror Story would be in Season 4. Does this mean that her character will die at some point during the season? Guess we’ll all have to watch to find out.
American Horror Story: Freak Show gets underway in October 2014, on FX.
