FX has just released the key artwork for American Horror Story: Freak Show and it includes the names of the series’ core cast members. The network has also revealed the names of the characters that each performer will play. More details and a look at the full size key art after the jump.
The fourth season of the popular FX horror series will feature returning cast members Sarah Paulson as conjoined twins Dot and Bette Tattler, Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars, Evan Peters as Jimmy Darling, Kathy Bates as Effil Darling, Emma Roberts as Maggie, and Angela Bassett as Desiree Dupree. The series has also added several new faces to the upcoming season.
American Horror Story: Freak Show will take place in 1950 in Jupiter, Florida, which was the home of an actual ‘freak show’ at that time. From the sound of it, the series may be loosely based on some actual events that occurred at the Jupiter ‘freak show’ – which was among the last freak shows in existence in the US. With three teasers and key art already released, we should be hearing more very soon.
The key artwork and casting announcements come on the heels of three teaser trailers that have hit the web over the past couple of weeks. Stay tuned to the site daily. We will provide you with more details on American Horror Story: Freak Show as they become available.
