The Nerdist Writers Panel podcast just broke the news on the overall arc for the fourth season of FX’s “American Horror Story”, where seres writer Douglas Petrie confirms a carnival theme!
“We just started season 4,” Petrie stated on the cast before confirming that the setting will in fact be carnival-themed, “Yes, it does not have a title. That’s the idea, very roughly that’s the idea.”
The carnival setting has been rumored for some time now, even before the third season, “Coven” had concluded. After the early termination of HBO’s “Carnivale,” it’s kind of exciting to see a new genre series taking on the world of carnies…
The only other details at this time is that the series will take place in the 1950s and that Jessica Lange will return with a German accent.
