We’ve long been hearing about all of the incredibly characters that Ryan Murphy has planned for the fourth season of American Horror Story. We’ve known that Sarah Paulson will be playing siamese twins, Kathy Bates will be playing the bearded lady, and Michael Chiklis will be playing the very suitable strong man. However, we’ve yet to see a photo that shows all cast members together.
A new poster was released today, via The Hollywood Reporter, that depicts many of the main characters inside a circus tent. Jessica Lange‘s character, the manager of the freak show, is standing front and center with a long feather boa.
Ryan Murphy spoke with The Hollywood Reporter and has this to say about season 4:
At every freak show, you have the tropes but there’s some [that are]unique and weird. It’s about something: It’s about outcasts and how society at that time … true stories about circus performers who were cast aside. The story in many ways dovetails with Asylum, because they leave one era and you can see many of them in real life were put into asylums. There’s a great symmetry we’ve come up with that’s rewarding.
The latest teaser for Freak Show shows a three-legged woman swinging on a large hoop inside a circus tent:
American Horror Story: Freak Show will premiere on Wednesday, October 8 at 10PM EST on FX.
