‘American Horror Story’ to return in the fall
The series will begin its fourth season at a creepy carnival.
March 19, 2014
On Monday, fans of the hit FX anthology series, “American Horror Story,” were treated to some exciting news on the upcoming season.
Fans have been speculating the theme of the new season ever since the finale of “Coven,” and are now more anxious than ever to see the show return to the small screen.
In a podcast from the Nerdist Writer’s Panel, Douglas Petrie, co-executive producer of the third season, confirmed rumors that that the fourth season will take place at a carnival. Petrie revealed that the new season does not yet have a title, however.
During a January interview with Entertainment Weekly, writer and producer Ryan Murphy revealed that the new season will take place during the 1950s, and said nothing more other than to expect the same comedic tone the last season had.
Actors Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange have all had important roles for the series since its commencement. All three have been fan-favorites since the first season, “Murder House,” despite some of their characters’ lack of morality throughout the three seasons.
The format of the series is so successful because these actors are able to play more versatile characters that allow them to take on a variety of different roles for the show.
Jessica Lange revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in November 2013 that the upcoming season will be her last. Lange will be playing Marlene Dietrich, a famous 1950s show performer with a German accent.
Now, viewers are left to wonder whether Lange’s previous co-stars will be joining her in her final season.
The 13-episode season is set to return to FX on October 12.
