American Horror Story: ‘Freak Show’By: Alexandria Sardam - March 25, 2014
That’s right folks, the moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here. American Horror Story’s next season will be titled, “Freak Show.”
After much speculation and excited conversation, co-creator Ryan Murphy announced via Twitter the excitingly, freaky news.
While the official title of the upcoming season is American Horror Story: Freak Show, there was a great deal of speculation that the theme was carnival-related after writer Douglas Petrie prematurely spilled during a podcast.
The fourth season’s subtitle sets the mood for the season-by-season changing show mood: creepy.
I mean really, what else did you expect?
While the theme has been announced allowing our minds to create a plethora of creepy ideas of what the show will be like, details about the upcoming season have been kept a pretty hush hush. We do know however, that actress Jessica Lange will be dazzling fans once more in this freakishly fun season. YIPPEE!
According to an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Murphy doesn’t see Lange ever leaving the series-or the series ever coming to an end.
“I can see American Horror Story going 10 years, 12 years, 15 years. I think it’s limitless because it re-energizes every year, and I would love for Jessica Lange to be part of it every year,” Murphy said.
When asked about the role Lange would play in Freak Show, Murphy simply laughed and said, “I can’t say anything. All I’ll say is, Jessica Lange has always wanted to play a Marlene Dietrich figure, and now she gets to.”
Murphy also mentioned that the show takes place in the 1950’s.
“If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece, he said. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!”
The creators and a handful of the actors are set to appear at an American Horror Story panel at PaleyFest on March 28th. Last year, PaleyFest was the location where the third season’s concept was revealed.
American Horror Story: Freak Show is set to premiere on FX in October.
