It's pretty safe to say that the upcoming season of [American Horror Story](series:206668) is one of the more highly anticipated horror tv properties of the year (I'm not counting Walking Dead, because that's ridiculous to use as comparison) The teasers that FX has released so far are showing us just what crazy lengths the Freakshow is going to go to...
The story: With her show’s popularity waning, Elsa (Jessica Lange) hopes to pump up attendance by finding and recruiting conjoined twins Bette and Dot (Sarah Paulson), two very different personalities sharing one body. Elsa’s troupe also includes the world smallest woman (Jyoti Amge), Jimmy (Evan Peters), who was born with lobster-like hands, his mother, bearded lady Ethel (Kathy Bates) and Desiree Dupree, a three-breasted performer played by Angela Bassett. Yup. Three boobs. Thanks, Ryan Murphy.
Entertainment Weekly has now confirmed that AHS: Asylum fan favorite, Pepper (Naomi Grossman), will be returning to the series!
In late July, what appeared to be an AHS call sheet leaked and listed Pepper, and then the rumors started to fly. Now confirmed, Pepper will be one of the members of the group of entertainers, managed by Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange).
“What Elsa has done for 20 years is she goes around to hospitals and jails and rescues these ‘freak’ circus performers who are going to be shipped away to asylums and she signs the waivers and she becomes their guardians. So Freak Show, according to Murphy, “is sort of like what happened to Pepper before she went to the asylum.”
