Ryan Murphy has finally released official information about American Horror Story season four – it will be called American Horror Story: Freak Show. We already knew (thanks to an AHS writer who leaked the info on a podcast last week) that the season would be take place at a carnival. Now we know a little bit more. Set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950, German expatriate Jessica Lange manages a carnival of freaks, one of the last real freak shows to survive in the United States. So far, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy are signed on, with possible other familiar faces as well.
As terrifying as a freak show is, the truly scary part about this upcoming season is definitely the setting. I mean, have any of you ever been to Jupiter, Florida? SHUDDER.
