It’s going to be a fun season for American Horror Story this year. Everyone is stoked for the whole “Freakshow’ storyline – can’t wait to see where they head with things. So far we’ve been treated to the usual fare of 15 second spots that really reveal nothing but are just strange enough to keep us watching but today we get something a little different. A full cast photo with everyone in their respective parts – and some odd parts they are. Check it out!
That’s a lot to take in!
THR also spoke with showrunner Ryan Murphy who had the following tidbit to reveal:
“It’s darker than Coven; it feels very unique,” Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter of Freak Show. “I directed the first one and I haven’t done that since the very first one of season one. It feels like a Douglas Sirk movie; it’s very 1952 presentational and then the horror is an unexpected jab. As opposed to last year, which was crazy camera work and comedy. This year feels different. The special-ability cast that we have is amazing and I feel so thrilled because for so many of them, it was their dream to be actors and they didn’t have any opportunities. There’s a great community. They feel part of something perhaps for the first time in their life and that’s an amazing thing that I was really emotional about when I was directing them.”
As the poster states, things kick off on the FX Channel on Oct. 8th
