The setting of the American Horror Story: Freak Show will be in the 1950s in Jupiter, Florida. This is a decade earlier than Asylum. The freak show sets in 1952. It was a place where lepers often oblige for shelter; on the other hand, they will find out that the one ran by Elsa Mars is a place, instead, where some of them will die., American Horror Story: Freak Show Ryan Murphy said “in many ways dovetails with Asylum.” He added that, during the 1960s, many circus freaks “in real life were put into asylums.”
The official hashtag of American Horror Story: Freak Show is #WirSindAlleFreaks. It means “we are all freaks.” Ryan Murphy said the special ability cast “amazing” and said further that “it was their dream to be actors and they didn’t have any opportunities.” Murphy described directing them as being an “emotional” experience.
American Horror Story: Freak Show, with Kathy Bates as the bearded lady and Sarah Paulson as conjoined twins, will reportedly be the last season for Jessica Lange to appear in the series on FX. Lange has been the heart of each season since the season one. Surely we will miss their roles and who knows there will be bombshell news. The fourth season might be the best season of American Horror Story.
