Ryan Murphy’s always spooky, often unsettling anthology series — American Horror Story — will kick off its fourth chapter, subtitled Freak Show, on Oct. 8, FX has announced.
The ’50s-set season will revolve around the titular sideshow attraction in Jupiter, Fla., run by Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange) and featuring conjoined twins Bette and Dot Tattler (Sarah Paulson), strongman Dell Toledo (Michael Chiklis), and, in as-yet-unrevealed roles, Evan Peters and Frances Conroy.
Patti LaBelle and Wes Bentley will make their first AHS appearances this season, while the rest of the cast is filled with returning players like Emma Roberts, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, and Jamie Brewer.
While Murphy has been typically tight-lipped about the Freak Show plot, he did reveal it will feature a character named Clown Killer — and that it will be the “most terrifying clown ever!”
