With series creator Ryan Murphy revealing that the forthcoming American Horror Story season will be called Freak Show, the internet has become abuzz with anticipation. Each year the show has taken a different horror premise and Freak Show is set to follow in the footsteps of Murder House, Asylum and Coven. What we know exactly about Freak Show is limited, but described here.

In the previous three seasons American Horror Story has covered a wide range of horror staples, from alien abductions to witches, serial killers, voodoo and evil Nazi doctors. But what must Freak Show do to stand out from the seasons that came before it?

On March 31, New York’s McC Theater held its raucous Miscast gala, an annual fundraiser honoring one veteran theater artist — this year, the fearless Allison Janney — with a concert program line-up that features Broadway stars performing songs typically sung by the opposite gender.

American Horror Story: Freak Show Details Trickling Out

30 March 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

We only just found out, through Ryan Murphy, that Season 4 would be called American Horror Story: Freak Show, so it’s amazing to already be learning a little bit more about the upcoming season. The details are trickling out and aren’t entirely enlightening, but it’s enough to allow us to paint a very basic picture. Thank goodness Murphy loves to talk, but it would be great if he would spill the beans on the supernatural elements of the season – or if there will be any. The carnival setting is still very much in play, not that I thought that would change, but the exact nature of the carnival is a bit easier to understand.

One of the first bits of Season 4 we heard was about Jessica Lange’s German accent. Now we know, according to EW, that she’ll be playing a German ex-pat managing one of the »

12 things we learned about 'American Horror Story' at PaleyFest

29 March 2014 12:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Blame it on the witches. "American Horror Story: Coven" cast a spell on viewers, and nowhere was this more evident than at PaleyFest. While the show has always been a reliable hit at the event, this year the fan reaction seemed, well, more ardent than usual. Young fans asked the cast for hugs. One asked for a job. Evan Peters got a hand-knotted panda bear cap, while Sarah Paulson got letters, a T-shirt, and was asked on a date by one young female admirer. There was screaming. A lot of screaming. As one woman sitting behind me grumbled, "This isn't a One Direction concert." Despite the similarities, the audience still managed to learn a lot -- even (gasp) details about the top-secret coming season, "Freak Show." Here are twelve factoids worth mentioning. 1) Ryan Murphy was told that "American Horror Story: Coven" would be the lowest rated season of the series »
