First revealed on the Nerdist podcat, series writer Douglas Petrie confirms a carnival theme for the next season of American Horror Story. The carnival/circus theme was rumored for some time, including in a tweet from Willam Belli that was instantly taken down. Petrie had this to say:
“We just started season 4,” Petrie stated on the cast before confirming that the setting will in fact be carnival-themed, “Yes, it does not have a title. That’s the idea, very roughly that’s the idea.”
The fourth season is rumored to be set in the 1950s and Jessica Lange will grace her last season with a German accent. No word on who’s returning or what the arc might be. Check in often for more American Horror Story season four news.
