‘American Horror Story’ Season 4 Reveals Setting’s Year, Details on Jessica Lange’s Character
'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.
According to Entertainment Weekly, 'American Horror Story' season 4 will be set precisely in 1950, as series creator Ryan Murphy says, "If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before."
More than that, Murphy specified that Lange had begun work on her German accent, which falls in line with earlier words that “Jessica Lange has always wanted to play a Marlene Dietrich figure, and now she gets to.” Murphy also previously claimed that the fourth season would shoot in New Orleans again, or perhaps in Santa Fe, while Lange claims the fourth run will be her last with the franchise.
We'll likely learn additional details of 'American Horror Story' season 4 in the weeks to come, but in the meantime, what do you think? Does a 1950 setting excite you, or seem too tonally familiar to 'Asylum'? Tell us what you want to see from 'American Horror Story''s future in the comments!
