“American Horror Story” fans, such as myself, rejoiced when creator Ryan Murphy confirmed that season 4 is set at a carnival. On Monday, Murphy released more details for AHS via Twitter. He stated that the title of season 4 is “Freak Show”. Needless to say, it fits the carnival theme perfectly.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Jessica Lange will return to play a German expat running one of nation’s last freak shows. Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy are among the series regulars who will step back into the “American Horror Story” universe to play Lange’s freak show performers. Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are also reportedly in talks to return. Being a true fan of AHS, I cannot wait for the new season!
