Are you ready to get your first real glimpse at FX's American Horror Story: Freak Show?! A full minute long trailer has been released that introduces viewers to several of the key characters in the story. Those characters include Effel Darling (Kathy Bates), the bearded lady; Wendell del Tolito (Michael Chiklis), the strongman; Desiree Dupree (Angela Bassett), the three-breasted woman; Jimmy Darling (Evan Peters), Effel’s son who appears to have webbed hands; Bette and Dot Tattler (Sarah Paulson), the two-headed woman; Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange), the ringleader; and Jyoti Amge, the world’s smallest woman, who seems to be playing Elsa’s assistant.
The series also stars Denis O’Hare, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch, and Finn Wittrock, and I'm sure we'll get a first look at the characters they play another time.
American Horror Story: Freak Show’ begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.
American Horror Story: Freak Show is sure to be an awesomely creepy addition to this horror series anthology. It premieres Wednesday, October 8 at 10 PM on FX. Thanks to Comingsoon!
