“American Horror Story” has tackled many bizarre myths, including ghosts,aliens, Nazi surgeons, and most recently, twisted witches and jazz-loving serial killers.
Most of the cast will be returning for the show’s fourth season later this year, but this season seems to continue the dramatic and suspenseful feel, subtitled “Freak Show.”
This season will feature Michael Chiklis, known for his role in the popular television show “Shield” and as The Thing in the“Fantastic Four” movies.
According to A&E’s website, Chiklis was cast to play the role of the ex-husband of Kathy Bates’ character. Bates will be returning to the show after making her first “AHS” appearance in the previous season, “Coven.” Both characters are performers in the “freak show.”
“I really enjoy watching ‘American Horror Story.’ The series is so creepy and the writers always find a way to throw in drama that everyone loves,” said art major Jessica Stewart.
“I have only watched the show a couple times with my mom, but I will definitely try to watch this season, since the last one seemed really good,” English major Jared Crane said.
The setting of this season will be in 1950s Jupiter, Florida, where star Jessica Lange will play the role of a carnival freak show owner. Filming for the new season hasn’t started, but will be shot in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Lange has been the backbone of “American Horror Story” since its beginning, but the actress has decided that “Freak Show” will be her last season, due to the lengthy time commitment, according to A&E.
Ryan Murphy, the series executive producer said in an interview that “Coven” cast members Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Jamie Brewer, Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts and Gabourey Sidibe would all be back to make this season better than the last “in some capacity.”
No exact date is currently set for season four’s premiere but we can expect it in October.
