[TV] “American Horror Story: Freak Show” Opens When?!

FX tells Bloody Disgusting that “American Horror Story” returns with an all-new gritty and gripping season, premiering Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Season 4, “Freak Show,” is “set in 1950s Juniper, FL, and centers around one of the last remaining freak shows of the time. From bearded ladies to Siamese twins, Freak Show features some of the series’ most familiar faces.

Emmy Award-winning actress Jessica Lange returns as Elsa Mars, Academy Award winner Kathy Bates plays Effil Darling, celebrated actress Angela Bassett is Desiree Dupree, Sarah Paulson will do double-duty as Siamese twins Bette and Dot Tattler, Evan Peters plays Jimmy Darling, and Emma Roberts is Maggie. Plus, “AHS” newcomer Michael Chiklis stars as Wendell Del Toredo, and joining the cast this season is John Carroll Lynch (“Fargo”), who will play a core villain.

    it’s going to feel odd without Lily Rabe this season. i hope to god the writers got their shit together this time and that the season doesn’t fall apart in the last 4 or 5 eps (COVEN i’m talking to you).

      Coven interested me a lot because it had a great cast but upon looking at different Images and things it seems really “glossy” and more aimed at teens than the first two seasons, I also heard that Jessica Lange and Angela Basset and Kathy Bates didn’t have much to do, so the focus was entirely on the teen witches. Not sure if that’s true, just what I’ve heard. I need to finish season 2 and actually watch season 3.

    As long as they don’t turn it into a cluster fuck like Asylum. Oh, and if a character dies, LEAVE THEM DEAD.

    I’ll be watching as always. 😀

    Coven had a pretty consistent tone through the series, way better than Asylum … A few episodes that needed work? … Fck yeah. But I love AHS so I don’t give a shit. I’m pumped for Freakshow … So many ways to go.
