Finally some news about the new season of American Horror Story. The show has had its ups and downs in terms of appeal, but for some reason I cannot seem to stop watching. What peaked my interests the most this time around, was the announcement that it would be set in a 1950’s style carnival complete with a freak show (the new season appropriately titled, American Horror Story: Freak Show).
Producers have confirmed that Michael Chiklis has been cast to play Evan Peters’ father and Jessica Lange’s ex-husband on the new season. You may know the actor from his role as Vic from The Shield or Ben (The Thing) from the Fantastic Four films.
“What a way to come back to my home network,” Chiklis teased. “We’re going to freak you and scare you!” We’re all looking forward to a bit of that returning to the show.
Some more inside scoop: Lange will be sporting a German accent. We can use our imaginations for what that might be about. It will be set in Jupiter, Florida in the 1950’s and Lange will be a German ex-pat running one of the last freak shows in the United States. It’s also been said that Sarah Paulson has been working to get a very special “talent” down for this season. Can’t wait.
What are you looking forward to this season?
