American Horror Story Season Four will be set in 1950, co-creator Ryan Murphy has revealed.

Speaking to EW, Murphy didn’t give up any plot details apart from the date  and the fact that Jessica Lange is working on a new accent.

“If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year,” he teased. “It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent, so I’m very excited!”

Lange has stated that she will be leaving American Horror Story after Season 4. Let’s hope that she goes out with a bang.

American Horror Story: Coven is currently airing on Fox in the UK. You can buy American Horror Story: Seasons 1-2 on Blu-ray for £33.75 at Amazon.co.uk.
