FX has announced that American Horror Story: Freak Show, the fourth season in the horror anthology series, will premiere on Wednesday, October 8th at 10pm ET/PT.
The story is set in 1950s Juniper, FL, and centers around one of the last remaining freak shows of the time. From bearded ladies to Siamese twins, it will feature some familiar faces from the series. Returning stars include Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts, and Evan Peters. AHS newcomers include Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch, Finn Wittrock, and Patti LaBelle.
Earlier in the week, Showrunner Ryan Murphy tweeted a photo with the world's smallest woman, Jyoti Amge, who has also joined the cast.
I've had a fascination with the history of freak shows for a long time, and I think this new season of the show could be the best one yet.
