First Real Trailer for American Horror Story: Freak Show
Just a little over a month away, the fourth season of “American Horror Story” has been kept pretty much under wraps with only a few details released. Today, we get the first real trailer for the show and a poster depicting the entire cast in character in what looks like it could be a promo for Wes Anderson’s next flick. The poster is quite cutesy compared to previous glimpses inside the show that featured a Stephen King-worthy clown. The new trailer reveals Kathy Bates as the bearded lady and Angela Bassett as three-breasted Desiree Dupree, with glimpses of Evan Peters, two-headed Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange set to the tune of Melanie Martinez’s “Carousel.”
The premiere date for “Freak Show” is set for October 8, and the series is again filmed in New Orleans, although the show setting is Jupiter, Florida. The official description states: “This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amid the dying world of the American carny experience.” Emma Roberts, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy and Gabourey Sidibe are also returning to the cast, with newcomers Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch, Finn Wittrock, Patti LaBelle and Matt Bomer making appearances.
We’ll again be going inside the show with our location guide of sites in and around New Orleans, live tweeting on Wednesday nights with @AynW so stay tuned for more updates as October 8 nears!
