FX’S ACCLAIMED ANTHOLOGY SERIES AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW PREMIERES OCTOBER 8

Series Stars Award-Winning Cast Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Michael Chiklis and Angela Bassett Will Air Wednesday Nights at 10 PM ET/PT

LOS ANGELES – August 20, 2014 – FX has set the premiere date for the fourth installment of its critically acclaimed anthology series American Horror Story: Freak Show for Wednesday, October 8 at 10 PM ET/PT.

American Horror Story: Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.

Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong and Brad Buecker are Executive Producers of American Horror Story: Freak Show. It is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.

The last incarnation of the anthology, American Horror Story: Coven, averaged 7.1 million Total Viewers and 5 million Adults 18-49, ranking it among the Top 20 shows in all of television (broadcast and cable) and Top 5 in cable in delivery of Adults 18-49. The American Horror Story franchise continues to be an Emmy® magnet, as Coven received 17 nominations, including Outstanding Miniseries. Other major nominations for Coven include Executive Producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk for Outstanding Writing; Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson for Outstanding Lead Actress; Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates and Frances Conroy for Outstanding Supporting Actress; and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon for Outstanding Directing. The three incarnations of AHS – American Horror Story, American Horror Story: Asylum, and American Horror Story: Coven – each have received 17 nominations, bringing the franchise total to 51 nominations.

Love the show, and look forward to the new incarnation of it. I enjoyed Coven, but rather hope that Freak Show will move a bit more quickly. I believe that this is Jessica Lang’s final season on the show, so it will be interesting to see how she may go out with a bang. I noticed that some of the series regulars were not listed as starring in this incarnation of the show. I certainly hope that they are trying to surprise viewers with their return. One of the things that my family enjoys doing with this show, is guessing how each character is going to reappear.

My Favorite American Horror Story was Asylum. I was really far ranging and all the characters and people who played them made that version of AHS very enjoyable. The one last year set in New Orleans in a Mansion was not as good in my opinion. I did watch all the episodes, but did not enjoy AHS as much with that format.
