A very small piece of news regarding the fourth season of "American Horror Story" came in recently thanks to FX network president John Landgraf who said that the next season was going to be a period piece. This left us all scratching our heads, leaving AHS fans left to wonder just when in the hell the fourth season was going to take place. EW did a little bit of digging and found exactly what we were all looking for. According to the site, Ryan Murphy has already begun plotting and planning his fourth installment of the FX franchise…as well as peppering the final episodes with tiny hints as to next year’s plot.
“It’s set in 1950,” Murphy reveals exclusively to the site. “If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!” How do you make Jessica Lange even more terrifying? Give her a German accent, that's how! The fourth season will be her last so hopefully series creator Ryan Murphy has big things in store for her character and will give her an unforgettable sendoff. Right now there's no telling what kind of character she will be playing but I have no doubt that Lange is going to give AHS fans exactly what they want—one hell of a performance.
