American Horror Story: Freak Show is the title of American Horror Story season four.
Ryan Murphy revealed to EW that Freak Show “It’s set in 1950, if you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!”
Now remember, this is Jessica Lange’s last season of American Horror Story *wipes tear*, so I am sure that she’s going to go out with a bang. There’s a new man in town and that man is Michael Chiklis (The Shield), he will be playing Kathy Bates ex-husband and Evan Peters father. Now as far as the rest of the cast, there will be returning members.
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. Freak Show’s 13 episodes will track this group as they do anything to keep their business around.
Ryan Murphy says that there will be a few familiar faces from American Horror Story seasons 1 and 2. Hopefully we’ll find out more about the cast along with the plot. American Horror Story Freak Show will be on FX in the fall.
