According to The Hollywood Reporter, an American Horror Story writer has confirmed the premise of the fourth season of the show, which is set to premiere in October. Writer Douglas Petrie has confirmed the rumour that season four will take place in a carnival setting, with reports confirming today that the series will be called Freak Show. There are countless terrifying scenarios that could be mined from a carnival setting, so it’s definitely an intriguing move from creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
Being an anthology show, each season of AHS takes place in a different setting and time, and contains a completely different set of characters; albeit with a couple of the same actors usually throw into the mix. The first three seasons of the show have been subtitled Murder House, Asylum and Coven. So, now we have American Horror Story: Freak Show to add to that list. We can’t wait!
