4 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

American Horror Story is returning in October with an entirely new theme: Freak Show. We've been collecting details about the ever-growing cast and upcoming plotlines for months, and the producers just revealed some great stuff during Summer TCA and Comic-Con. Here's everything we know, from the characters to the new cast members! It will be (mostly) set in the 1950s, in Jupiter, Fl. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Murphy confirmed, "It's set in 1950. If you look historically [at] what happened in the year 1950 - there's some more clues in that year. It's a period piece." Later he claimed to EW, "It's a combination of two time periods, with the main one being the 1950s."

Finn Wittrock Joins American Horror Story: Freak Show

24 July 2014 11:43 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As with most Ryan Murphy shows, viewers usually either love or hate American Horror Story. And with its campy, creepy, envelope-pushing storylines and characters, I’d definitely in the first camp of thought about it. This fall, Ahs is coming back for a fourth season, promisingly titled American Horror Story: Freak Show, and I can’t wait to see what the batty showrunner has up his sleeve. One especially exciting aspect of the fourth series is its cast – in addition to many series regulars, Freak Show has been announced to include new blood like Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley and now Finn Wittrock.

The casting of the All My Children alum, who worked with Murphy on the acclaimed HBO movie The Normal Heart and also had an arc on the Showtime series Masters of Sex, was revealed by Murphy via Twitter:

Thrilled to announce the very talented Finn Wittrock has joined the cast of Freak Show! »

Disturbing Teaser for American Horror Story: Freakshow

14 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Update: This teaser has been confirmed to be a fake. It's still a great fan-made teaser though! 

FX has premiered the first disturbing teaser trailer for American Horror Story: Freakshow. It's called "Fallen Angel," and it gives us a look at a young woman seemingly graced with angelic wings. Of course, the magic is taken away when you see that the wings are being operated by a creepy-ass clown! Yikes! This is going to be a sinister and dark chapter for the horror anthology series. 

The series stars Jessica Lange, Michael Chiklis, Sarah Paulson, Bates, Angela Bassett, Jamie Brewer, Denis O’Hare, Wes Bentley, and Frances Conroy. The story takes place in the 1950s and follows a traveling freakshow. My twisted mind can't wait to watch this!

Update: Yes, fans all over the globe have been conned! FX have confirmed (via E! Online) that the teaser is a fan-made creation and that no official teasers have been released. Shame really, as this one is very, very convincing (and creepy)…

A short-but-sweet/scary teaser has been released to promote the upcoming series of American Horror Story: Freak Show.

Set in 1950s Florida, the story will focus on one of America’s last remaining ‘freak shows’, with its members and owner (Jessica Lange) willing to do anything to keep their business alive. Not much else is known about the series, but the show’s Wikipedia page is quoted as stating:

The season will focus on the conflict between the freaks and the ‘evil forces’ who do not understand them.
