The fourth cycle of Ryan Murphy's 'American Horror Story' will take us to the 'Freak Show' with a cast of familiar faces, but at least one new big name has been added to the marquee. 'The Shield' and 'No Ordinary Family' star (ha, right?) Michael Chiklis has officially joined 'American Horror Story: Freak Show,' but as whom, you ask?
American Horror Story
Where yesterday saw FX's 'American Horror Story' officially adding a 'Freak Show' subtitle for its fourth season, confirming series creator Ryan Murphy's incarnation toward a carnival setting, today we have a more detailed insight, as well as the full cast likely present for Jessica Lange's purported 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' bow.
Where once FX's 'American Horror Story' surprised us all to reveal that its second season would enter an 'Asylum,' and the third fittingly followed its witchy women into a 'Coven,' the official title for 'American Horror Story' season 4 confirms the carnival setting we've heard. Prepare for 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' to scare us all over again this fall!
Between haunted California mansions, Northeastern mental asylums and the witchy backwoods of Louisiana, FX's 'American Horror Story' has run the gamut of creepy locales for its myriad horror hijinks. While season 4 has yet to receive an official title, writers have confirmed that the next go around of Ryan Murphy's horror carousel will almost certainly take place in a carnival setting.
Tonight brings the season finale of 'American Horror Story: Coven,' as the girls embark on the long-awaited and highly-anticipated Seven Wonders test to finally discover who will be the new Supreme. Given the wishy-washy nature of this season, it really is anyone's title at this point. Just give it to Myrtle already.
FX monster mash 'American Horror Story: Coven' will come to its ultimate close this week with the airing of season 3 finale "The Seven Wonders," albeit with a bit less buildup than its predecessors. The coven begins the titular trials in search of the new Supreme in the full set of photos from the finale, but has the answer already been revealed by eagle-eyed fans in the opening credits?
Tonight brings the penultimate episode of 'American Horror Story: Coven,' as Cordelia regains her power and her latest visions foretell a troubling future (or lack thereof) for the coven. Queenie takes a trip to the underworld to search for Marie Laveau, while Kyle and Zoe's vacation is short-lived (sigh, of course), and Misty finally returns. Also: Delphine gets a makeover and a new job!
On tonight's new episode of 'American Horror Story: Coven,' Fiona and Marie have a long-awaited showdown with the witch-hunter corporation, while Cordelia makes a desperate sacrifice to protect the coven (yeah, saw that one coming -- no pun intended). Meanwhile, familiar faces return both to our delight and disappointment because no one stays dead on this show, and Myrtle talks a lot about fashion and love and uses words that she may or may not have made up.
'American Horror Story: Coven' will soon come to a close, starting anew the guessing game of what new horrors season 4 will concoct. We knew a few small tidbits, particularly that we'd be getting another period piece, but the official year has now been revealed, along with an update on series star Jessica Lange's fourth and presumably final franchise character.
It's good news-bad news from the FX panel at the ongoing Television Critics Association press tour, as the cable network has revealed some tantalizing new comedies from the likes of Zach Galifianakis and Charlie Kaufman, but confirmed the fates of its current lineup. Timothy Olyphant gunslinger drama 'Justified' has been confirmed to end after its next season, while 'American Horror Story's next cycle will likely take us back in time once more.
