FX ordered another installment of “American Horror Story” and Gabourey Sidibe is one of the recurring stars that will be returning for the new season titled, “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”
Other cast members returning include Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett.
“American Horror Story: Freak Show” will be set in Jupiter, Florida, in 1950. In season four Jessica Lange plays a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. There’s no word on which role Gabourey will play during the new season.
I have yet to sit down and watch the popular series, but I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t intrigued by the Ryan Murphy created show. I actually think it’s fascinating that each season/installment is set in a completely different place in time and a different location.
Season one, “American Horror Story: Murder House,” was set in 2011 in Los Angeles. Season 2 was titled “American Horror Story: Asylum” and was set in Massachusetts in 1964 and, season 3, “American Horror Story: Coven,” was set in New Orleans in the 19th and 21st centuries
If I start now, I can watch seasons 1-3 before season 4 begins.
