American Horror Story: Freak Show is on its way and boy, are we excited.

Set in the small town of Jupiter, Florida in 1952, the series depicts a group of freak show curiosities as they battle a strange force that threatens ordinary townsfolk and carnies alike. More broadly, it's about the struggle to save the carny way of life amidst huge social changes in the 1950s.

Most of the original cast are returning, including Emmy winners Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts and Evan Peters.

New faces include Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch, Finn Wittrock and Patti LaBelle.

Previous series of America Horror Story have taken place in a lunatic asylum, a haunted house and in amongst feuding witches and voodoo practitioners in New Orleans.

Freak Show may be its most ambitious cast of characters yet, and it makes for a fabulous poster:

Freak Show debuts October 8, but in the mean time, check out the creepy teasers below:
