If any doubts remained about the setting of America Horror Story‘s fourth season, co-creator Ryan Murphy did away with them this morning when he tweeted the logo/subtitle at right: “Freak Show.”
That provides official confirmation to comments made last week by writer Douglas Petrie indicating the next season of FX’s anthology series will take place in a carnival. We can also piece together from earlier reports that it will be set during the 1950s, and that Jessica Lange at least will be using a German accent.
This season of American Horror Story will be Lange’s last; she won an Emmy Award for her performance in the first season.
AHS: Freak Show will follow Murder House, Asylum and Coven.
