AMERICAN HORROR STORY has been a very hot topic. The show's popularity has grown with each season and anyone who has ever seen the show knows just why. Back in March we learned that the fourth season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY would be referred to as FREAK SHOW. We also learned that the next season will be Jessica Lange's final involvement with the show.
Recently while talking with EW, co-creator of the show Ryan Murphy revealed to the world some big information regarding the upcoming season.
“It was always a concept that Jessica and I talked about really early on,” says Murphy of the new season. “It was always her favorite one, which I thought was funny. I’ve had many different versions that I’ve run by her. I just love it. It feels really right. I thought it was going to be light but it’s turning out to be quite terrifyingly dark, which it feels much more like the Asylum season. But look if you have a character named the Clown Killer, it’s going to be dark.”
When asked if that means that the show will feature a scary clown? Murphy replied:
"Yes, the most terrifying clown ever!"
He was also asked if there would be a bearded lady in which he answered:
“Yes. Our version of it.”
Description for AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW:
"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”?
