There have been some images floating around the internet for a while now, suggesting that the theme of 2014's American Horror Story will be "circus." And a few days ago, Ryan Murphy confirmed it- the new series will be called "Freak Show!"
From Entertainment Weekly- "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; Denis O’Hare and 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."
Well, I am stoked. I loved Angela Basset and Kathy Bates in this last season, and the premise sounds like it could be a lot of fun. The only down-side I am seeing is that I have to wait until October for this to come out. Where is time travel when I need it??
