Last week, we brought you the news that the fourth season of American Horror Story will be set in a creepy carnival setting but was yet to secure a title! Today, it’s been announced that the new season will be entitled “American Horror Story: Freak Show”
Ryan Murphy has also previously confirmed that the series will be set in two different time periods, including the 1950s and that Jessica Lange WILL be returning as a character with a German accent, along with Sarah Paulson.
The carnival theme has been rumoured for a while with AHS viewers creating fan posters early this year, eagerly suggesting a circus-themed Season 4. At the time, Ryan Murphy quashed the rumours, telling Entertainment Weekly,“I saw those posters. I don’t know where people came up with that idea. Sometimes I think its people wanting us to do topics and doing fan posters. No one has completely guessed what it is.”
“American Horror Story: Freak Show” will debut on FX in October 2014.
