Following the announcement that American Horror Story Season 4 would be titled American Horror Story: Freak Show, the first round of casting has been announced.
According to EW, the series is set in Jupiter, Florida in 1950, and Jessica Lange will play “a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S.” Her group of “unusuals” is made up of Coven cast-members: Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Frances Conroy.
The site also mentions that fellow Coven members Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are in talks to star.
The general reaction to American Horror Story: Coven was somewhat more divided than Asylum, but there’s definite promise in a carnival setting. Will Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk return to the darkness, or will they keep things light?
American Horror Story: Freak Show begins this autumn on Fox. You can buy American Horror Story: Seasons 1-2 on DVD for £34 at Amazon.co.uk.
