American Horror Story: Freak Show / Season 4 Name Revealed March 24, 2014 Ryan Murphy announced via his twitter account @MrRPMurphy that the highly anticipated carnival themed season has officially been named ‘Freak Show’. The fourth season will be set in a carnival. Leading some to speculate that the season may be set around a “freak show,” a la Todd Browning’s 1932 horror classic, Freaks. As you can see on the picture below, there has been some Freaks inspiration in previous AHS seasons … I can’t wait. EW has some details about what’s to come: “Set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950, Freak Show finds Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. Her group of “unusuals”? Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued; Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are also in talks to return. Freak Show’s 13 episodes will track this group as they do anything to keep their business around.” Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
