Ryan Murphy revealed that the next season of “American Horror Story” will be titled “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”
The series co-creator took to Twitter to unveil the exciting and foreboding name of the new chapter in the “American Horror Story” anthology series. This comes only days after it was revealed that the new season will be set at a carnival.
Murphy said this season is set in the 1950s, and that Lange is working on her German accent. The “American Horror Story: Coven” cast will take to the PaleyFest stage on Friday, March 28, and Murphy will likely reveal some new teases of Season 4 then.
Update: Entertainment Weekly released the following information about “Freak Show”: “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.”
“American Horror Story: Freak Show” will premiere on FX in October 2014.
