The “American Horror Story” (AHS) Season 4 has now been officially named “Freak Show.” The show is freaky enough already even with their very first season and it’s bound to get even freakier!
The creator of the show, Ryan Murphy has just announced that the set will be in a carnival and they are very certain that the new episodes following this new season will be in a circus. They’re taking it literally. With clowns and all the circus hype, we are all expecting a great horror and freaky show hitting our television sets soon.
As of the moment, this new season is being kept a secret. However, a source confirmed to E! News that the AHS Season 4 will take place in Jupiter, Florida in 1950. Jessica Lange, who is so incredible in all of the AHS seasons, will play the role of a German ex-pat who manages one of the freak shows in the U.S., which was reported by Entertainment Weekly.
Don’t you worry because there are a lot of returning stars. Aside from Lange, she will be joined by Oscar winner Kathy Bates (“Misery”), Evan Peters (“Kiss Ass”), Sarah Paulson (“Studio 60 On the Sunset Strip”), Angela Basset (“How Stella Got Her Groove Back”) and Frances Conroy (“Six Feet Under”). These cast members are said to be the members of the twisted freak show.
Hmmm… a freak show managed by Jessica Lange? Oh this is going to be a cringefest! We’ve seen how she did it in the very first season and as a nun in the Asylum and a witch in The Coven.
The next season of “American Horror Story” will have a 1950s vibe and there will be a hurl of various accents.
According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Murphy said that
“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!” said Murphy in the Entertainment Weekly report.
The “American Horror Story ” Season 4 which is officially named “Freak Show’ is set to premier this October 2014 on FX.
