Last night at Paleyfest here in Los Angeles, Ryan Murphy and his team from American Horror Story took to the stage to reflect on American Horror Story: Coven and to look ahead at American Horror Story: Freak Show, the FX series' fourth story arc.
Murphy revealed to the audience that Michael Chiklis (The Shield, Fantastic Four) will be joining the freak show; he'll star as Evan Peters' father.
Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Jamie Brewer, Denis O'Hare and Frances Conroy – as previously reported – are returning as well.
Details about Freak Show pulled from Paleyfest's Twitter are this: The fourth season is about a "freak show" – not a carnival or circus and it will be set in Florida.
Expect the new season to begin in October.
