Now, EW breaks news on returning cast, as well as story details.

The seres, returning this fall, is set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950. “Freak Show” finds Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S.

Her group of “unusuals” Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued.

Adds the site, Denis O’Hare and the gorgeous Emma Roberts are also in talks to return.

“Freak Show’s” 13 episodes will track this group as they do anything to keep their business around.

    Emma Roberts better be back! She was one of the only reasons I kept watching last season!

  • djblack1313

    no Lily Rabe?!! i know it’s still early so they can still cast her in something…they better!

    • homodrome

      Lily Rabe has a pilot booked so she might not be available for a headlining role but she might still have a smaller role like she did in season 1.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    I’m glad at the amount of talent returning for ‘Freak Show’, but what about Lilly Rabe?!? she was the best thing about Coven! Also, I’d love to see Gabourey Sidibe return.

    Premise sounds great, but no Lily Rabe?????? Hopefully, that changes, because Rabe is at the top of the list for consistent and high quality AHS performances. Sister Mary Eunice from Asylum is the best, IMO.

    And Emma Roberts needs to come back! She’s a good villain, and Madison was one of my favorite characters in Coven.

    As long as Taissia Farmiga doesnt return. To be honest i absolutely disliked her and Evan’s storyline this past season and i feel it didnt help the overall story progress at all. But i am VERY excited

  • zigwardScissorHands

    Bring back Stevie Nicks…… joking!…… not joking.

    Am I the only one who wants McDermott back?

    • http://mitchmacready.blogspot.com/ Zombie-Killa

      No, you’re not. lol.

      I loved McDermott in Murder House, and the Johnny character had so much potential in Asylum (his speech about killing Lana in the second to last episode…….wow). Hopefully, he’ll return someday as a bad guy, because McDermott is more entertaining as a jerk.

    • ThunderDragoon

      I want him back too.

  • j.c

    I know McDermott has expressed interest in returning to the show and now that hostages seems to be all but over, maybe they’ll get a role for him.

  • Flash-Over

    No Rabe? BOOOOO

    I really hope Taissa doesn’t return though. She isn’t really good at playing anything but a whiny teenager.

    Seriously though, Murphy, get Rabe.

  • Nurse Derpusheen

    Why no Rabe? NOT me gusta…
