[TV] “American Horror Story” Season 4 Will Take Place When?!

A little bit of news hit just yesterday about the fourth season of FX’s “American Horror Story”. Soon after, EW did some digging and came up with a juicy nugget of news.

“American Horror Story: Coven” is beginning to wrap up its phenomenal season but co-creator Ryan Murphy has already begun plotting and planning his fourth installment of the FX franchise…as well as peppering the final episodes with tiny hints as to next year’s plot.

It’s set in 1950,” Murphy reveals exclusively to EW. “If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before.

He also added this insanely huge clue: “Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!

What we know is that the show will take place post-World War II. Could it be Nazi-themed, again? Maybe it will hark back to season 2 and dive more into Project Paperclip and the alien files?

What do you guys think?

    If it’s aliens I’m down, I wanted to see way more aliens in Season 2 than they put in. I probably would have liked it better. As for Nazi’s….ehh they’d have to do something really good with it like Dead Snow good….I saw a fake poster for American Horror Story: Circus as well now I do think that would make a good season all of the crazy carnies they could put into the show would make great characters…but I felt like the whole freaks thing was done in Season 2 as well. They should have done it at a different time period other than the 1950’s it’s going to feel too much like Season 2 🙁 maybe not but time will tell I’ll still watch because every season so far has been great!

      The 1950s was more about the Cold War era rising. Germany was still involved in rocket research with Dr. von Braun (German) saying “Rocket Flights to the moon are possible!” I’m surprised not many have picked up on this yet…

      Cold war paranoia + Something returned from space + Bodysnatchers style storyline? Perfect fodder.

        Okay now that puts me at ease because it sounds much better than what I was thinking 🙂

        • weresmurf

          Dont get me wrong it hasn’t been announced that’s what it’s about but let’s hope they go with the cold war at least!

    While it looked pretty fake anyway, I think I’d have liked to see AHS go with the circus/freakshow, but post-WWII will probably be good too. If that’s the case, I’d love to see the writers delve into the Nazi’s occult practices. Then again, that might be a little overkill coming from a season based on witchcraft.

    if its Nazis they better rename it to German Horror Story lol

    The real question is, who’s playing Marilyn Munroe?

    • polock91

      lol Monroe*

  • pyrepunk

    Werewolf Women of the SS….why is this all I can think of right now….ha I could see this show doing something as awesome as that and pulling it off well even though that’s not going to be it… 🙁

    Am I the only one who wanted to see a slasher-season of American Horror Story? Like one set around a summer camp or a school? Anyways, I’m sure it’ll kick ass whatever it ends up being.

      @Blood-Sicles, i would freaking LOVE a slasher AHS season! i don’t see Lange wanting to be a part of that type of deal but i can see it happening once she leaves.

    • WalkWithMeInDarkness

      @Blood-Sicles Fuck yes to a slasher season! A camp setting would be great. Masked slashers need to come back. Whether it’s the Scream style whodunit or the returned from the grave/boogeyman type of slasher, I would be so stoked if they did that.

  • numberthirty

    Isn’t 1950 the year Easy Germany was founded?

  • ThunderDragoon

    I hope it doesn’t feel too much like season 2. I want every season to feel different, as it has so far. And yes to a slasher season of AHS! That would be amazing.

    I’m thinking Nazi werewolves.
