For those of us who were hoping for a Roaring 20s setting for the newest season of [American Horror Story](series:206668) FX has revealed that the latest installment of the horror drama will be set in 1950s Florida.
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.
Fan favorite, Jessica Lange will return as the leader of the carnival, a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S (accents!), and is joined by a cast of AHS alumni (Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, and Sarah Paulson) and some high-powered newcomers (including Michael Chiklis).
