We are getting closer to the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show and the news just keeps coming.

First up we have a new image which some people are suggesting may be the first look at Twisty the Clown Killer (played by John Carroll Lynch), however I am not so sure.  As you can see from the photo below, we certainly have an incredibly scary looking clown (but to be honest I find all clowns unsettling, well apart from Krusty the Clown that is). Part of the reason I am not sure it is Twisty is that we are told that Twisty will be covering part of his face and when that is removed it will be incredibly unsettling and could make people faint with terror. Therefore considering that the picture is of the lower part of the face of the clown, and although it is unsettling and creepy, it is certainly not faint inducing.  Also, if the unveiling of Twisty the Clown Killer’s face is a large part of the storyline, I doubt that Ryan Murphy et al would spoil that for us this early on.  We will have to wait and see as the season progresses.

Next up we have another casting announcement for the series which will premiere on October 8.  According to The Hollywood Reporter Skyler Samuels, who has previously starred in The Gates and The Wizards of Waverly Place, will play a character who will have a “major recurring arc” and will be playing a local woman in a tough situation.  As with many of the new characters no further details have been given for her role, however she will be playing a “pivotal character”.

American Horror Story: Freak Show will star firm favourites including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, and Angela Bassett. We also have new blood to look forward to including Matt Bomer who will be playing a currently unknown twisted guest role in the series.  We did learn last week that the Halloween episodes will feature the legendary horror myth Edward Mordrake, aka The Man with Two Faces, and no casting announcement has been made for this role, so I wonder whether this is the role that Bomer will play.  Only time will tell.

As we get more news on the series we will bring it straight to you because after all #WirSindAlleFreaks.  American Horror Story: Freak Show will air on FX at 10/9C from October 8, and will air on Fox in the UK from October 21.
