If you're a big fan of FX's "American Horror Story" like I am then you're probably stoked for the upcoming fourth season, "Freak Show". We've been closely following the news regarding the new season, bringing you all the casting news and rumors as we've heard them, and now we've learned when we can expect to visit the "Freak Show" this October.

This morning it was announced that "American Horror Story: Freak Show" will be premiering on Wednesday, October 8th at 10pm ET/PT on FX, so mark your calendars.

The fourth season of FX’s horror anthology series is set set in Jupiter, Florida in 1950 and finds Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. This is shaping up to be their best season yet!

Lange’s posse of “unusuals” is made up of Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy who are all playing performers that have been rescued by Lange’s character. Michael Chiklis also stars with Denis O’Hare and Emma Roberts returning. We recently learned that songstress Patti LaBelle and the World's Smallest Woman Jyoti Amge have recently joined the cast, as well.

We're counting down the days until "AHS: Freak Show" returns to FX on October 8. Are you excited to visit the Freak Show?

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on the night of a full moon. That horror connection is moderately neato. Also, some people experience agitation and lunacy on the night of a full moon. Hecate's possible visit should enhance certain viewers' horror-watching evenings.

The show has failed to grab me thus far. I watched the first few episodes of the first season, and found it style over substance. I have been thinking about giving the latter two seasons a try. But I will watch Freak Show, mainly because I am from Jupiter, FL. Should be interesting.

Season 1 was fun, but you could probably skip the second season altogether. However, season 3 ("Coven") was great, IMO. I think they're gonna deliver something fun with this "Freak Show" setting this year.

With all due respect, no legitimate horror fan should proclaim "Coven" better than "Asylum"..."Asylum" has been the best "AHS" thus far; grim, bleak, disturbing, poignant, and incredibly engrossing. The story lines of Sister Jude and Lana Winters are they best stuff the writers have ever created. It had the best arc, in terms of characters and story, and finished beautifully.
"Coven" was the definition of a 'hot mess'; incoherent, campy, inconsistent, and even lazy as it prolonged itself.

"Coven" was the definition of a 'hot mess'; incoherent, campy, inconsistent, and even lazy as it prolonged itself. While it never ceased to be a romp and a ton of fun to tune into every week, there was no real goal to the story at the end; the final episode was supremely weak, save for the resolution of Jessica Lange's Fiona (which was fun, but didn't feel appropriate). "Coven" also wasted Kathy Bates--here's hoping "Freak Show" learns from "Coven"'s mistakes, of which there were many.
