“Set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950, Freak Show finds Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. Her group of “unusuals”? Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy all play performers whom Lange’s character has rescued; Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts are also in talks to return. Freak Show’s 13 episodes will track this group as they do anything to keep their business around.”March 24, 2014 at 1:03 pm #313563
Frances Conroy as The Bearded Lady. Calling it now.March 24, 2014 at 1:13 pm #313564
I know Lange is retiring from the franchise after this installment and intends to retire from acting altogether — but I hope Kathy Bates doesn’t decide to make her home with Ryan Murphy on TV. I rather she fights Melissa Leo and Jacki Weaver for all the Oscar bait opportunities they’ll have in the marketplace for character actresses in film.March 24, 2014 at 1:20 pm #313565
Go Florida! Even if this is bad it can’t be worse than Coven, right? Right?March 24, 2014 at 2:34 pm #313566
I know I’m probably wrong but I hope we get Evan Peters as “the lobster boy”. I know people may not be familiar with this one but there was a real guy.March 25, 2014 at 6:02 am #313567
What I would give for Lily Rabe to come back…March 29, 2014 at 12:07 am #313568
Michael Chiklis has joined the cast as Evan Peters’ father and Kathy Bates’ ex-husband
I think he’s obviously going to play the strongman in the circus freaksMarch 29, 2014 at 6:38 am #313569
“Chiklis will be playing the father to Peters’ character and ex-husband to Bates’ character. Showrunner Ryan Murphy also revealed that everyone on the PaleyFest stage would be returning in season four in “some capacity” including Gabourey Sidibe and Jamie Brewer. Other panelists Friday included Paulson, Roberts, Peters, Bassett, Conroy, O’Hare and Bates as well as producers Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Tim Minear and Dante DiLoreto. Star Lange — and fan favorite Lily Rabe — were not in attendance. (Lange was on spring break with her grandchildren and Rabe was in production and unable to attend.)”
Either Rabe is gonna be the star of this season and they’re waiting to make a surprise announcement or she’s out…March 29, 2014 at 7:38 am #313570
Lily Rabe has a lead role in a pilot, so she’s most likely not going to be in Freak Show.March 29, 2014 at 9:51 am #313571
Awesome casting. I was hoping they got some new blood in there and he seems like a great co-lead for when Lange is gone for Bates and Bassett.June 12, 2014 at 12:24 pm #313572
lol 😮June 13, 2014 at 1:24 am #313573
This would be the most creepy, scary, awesome thing ever on televisionJuly 13, 2014 at 9:55 am #313574

wow, wasn’t expecting that in the trailer.
Thanks for the links RobertoTerra!!
I hope that Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott do something in this, I enjoyed them in Season 1. Sad to hear that this could possibly be Jessica Lange’s last season but I’m sure she’ll be just as impressive as she has been in the last 3 seasons. Can’t wait for more information!!July 14, 2014 at 10:29 am #313576
