American Horror Story: Freak Show To Bring Back Jessica Lange and More Stars

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


“American Horror Story” creator Ryan Murphy announced on Monday that the fourth installment in the FX anthology will be titled “Freak Show.”

Following season three’s witches-themed “Coven,” the new batch of episodes will be set at a carnival in Jupiter, Florida in 1950.

Jessica Lange will star as a German expatriate “managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S.,” and “doing anything to keep their business around,” reports Entertainment Weekly.

The magazine says other returning cast members Evan Peters, Angela Basset, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, and Frances Conroy will play performers in the troupe.

Emma Roberts and Denis O’Hare are reportedly in negotiations to rejoin, too.

There is no season premiere date yet.
