After a lackluster season 2, which relied heavily on shock and gore and a season 3 which threatened to jump the shark with special musical guests, American Horror Story needs a season to rival its brilliant first season.
According to /Film Ryan Murphy's show will make the attempt with a good old fashioned freak show.
"Murphy announced the title today via Twitter, in some ways confirming hopes reports that AHS would next be set in a carnival. A freak show is close enough, and makes sense given the series’ other settings."
Entertainment Weekly reports that the show will be set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950 and will feature series regular Jessica Lange as a German ex-pat trying to keep one of the last freak shows in the U.S. alive, by any means necessary.
In addition to Lange, the series will see the return of Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy as 'freaks' that Lange has 'saved'.
