We are getting closer and closer to the premiere of the new season of American Horror Story, which we all know is subtitled Freak Show. We had the first full trailer released last week, however, the teaser trailers continue with the release of “Big and Small”.
The trailer shows us what appears to be a dwarf strong man walking between the legs of a “giant”. These trailers really are showing us a taste of what we can expect from the series which is set in the 1950’s and tells the story of Jessica Lange’s Freak Show.
As we know the plot for this season is that Jessica Lange plays Elsa Mars, who runs the last Freak Show in America, and when it pulls into the town of Jupiter, Florida there is someone who is not pleased to see them arrive. We had the exciting news last week that Naomi Grossman will be reprising her role of Pepper, who was last seen in American Horror Story: Asylum and that we will finally get to see what Pepper was like before she ended up in Briarcliff over a decade later.
Returning cast includes the brilliant Sarah Paulson as Dot and Bette the conjoined twins with distinct personalities, Emmy Award winner Kathy Bates will be playing Ethel the Bearded Lady, with Evan Peters playing her son Jimmy. Angela Bassett will be returning as Desiree Dupree the three breasted woman, and we will also see Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts as a pair of con artists.
As well as the returning cast members we have grown to know and possibly hate over the years, we will have new cast members in the shape of The Shield‘s Michael Chiklis as Dell Toledo who has a history with Bates’ and Peters’ characters, as well as John Carroll Lynch as the murderous Twisty the Clown Killer. We have also got the promise of Matt Bomer making a guest appearance in the series as well.
For me, American Horror Story is always can’t miss TV, and from what we have learnt so far Freak Show will be no exception, and I will happily admit that #WirSindAlleFreaks.
American Horror Story: Freak Show will premiere on FX at 10/9C on October 8.
