On Friday night at Paleyfest 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” films) 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.
