Siamese twins Bett and Dot will likely be attractions at the 1950s Jupiter, Florida freak show in which American Horror Story’s fourth season will be set. The freak show is run by Jessica Lange’s character, a German ex-patriot who collects “freaks” for her show, operating under the belief that she’s rescuing them from worse lives, reported Entertainment Weekly.
Unlike in Coven, Denis O’Hare’s character will not be on the side of Lange’s character. In fact, he’ll be her biggest antagonist. "I’m going to be working at cross-purposes with her,” O’Hare told Vulture. “We’ll have lots of scenes with each other, but we’ll be battling."
Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, and Angela Bassett are all set to play freak show attractions. Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe and Jamie Brewer have signed on for Freak Show, though they’re characters have yet to be revealed. Michael Chiklis is joining the American Horror Story cast for the first time this season.
American Horror Story: Freak Show will premiere sometime in October.
