Last week we gave you some casting news and plot details about the upcoming season of American Horror Story, subtitled Freak Show. This week we’re letting you in on a bit of news that was revealed at the recent PaleyFest in Los Angeles.
As reported at Collider, Michael Chiklis (The Shield, The Commish, Fantastic Four) will be joining the cast as Evan Peters’ father and Kathy Bates’ ex-husband. Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, Gabourey Sidibe, and Jamie Brewer are also returning to the show.
Speaking on a PaleyFest panel, the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, noted that a freak show in 1950s Florida was a setting that Jessica Lange wanted. Nice that they made that happen for her in what will be her final season on the show. Also, despite the setting being in Florida, the show will be shot in New Orleans.
