Showrunner Ryan Murphy gives setting details for the next season of FX's American Horror Story

Jan. 16, 2014by: Paul Shirey

Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck's American Horror Story series has quickly become can't-miss entertainment, helping to usher in a new era of horror on TV. The anthology series has stuck to it's concept since the first season ended, repurposing the prior season's cast into different roles for the next season, while bringing in a few new faces, typically big name stars. The current season, American Horror Story: Coven, has been another stellar season for the series, with returning star Jessica Lange continuing to "kill it" and co-stars Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett bringing a tremendous level of awesome to the party. Now, creator Ryan Murphy has dropped some small hints as to what the setting of the next season will be, as well as a word on Lange's character.

Its set in 1950. If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, theres some more clues in that year. Its a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what weve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so Im very excited!

The fourth season is said to be Lange's last for the series, which has already netted her a Golden Globe award for her work. The ratings-pushing show has been a breath of fresh air for the horror genre on TV and made for some bloody good fun and even some genuine scares. By far one of the best shows on TV and one to keep looking forward to.

American Horror Story: Coven is currently on Wednesdays at 10 PM ET.

Murder House was awesome, but Asylum sucked ass. The latter just featured a lot of plot lines that just went nowhere and fizzled out, like the whole alien thing for instance. Need to catch up and watch Coven, and I'm still looking forward to the next season despite a lackluster season 2.

I am 2 episodes into Season 2 and have absolutely NO interest in going any further............. I have spoken to a couple of others and heard it was pretty bad but they watched it anyway. Not sure I will, might be bored enough sometime to give episode 3 a viewing, but it is doubtful.

Couldn't agree more about season 2, but I think Coven has been even better than Murder House.

Love the show

Though it'd technically be "American Sci-Fi Story," I'd be interested in them taking on the Space Race/Sputnik (later that decade), Roswell (earlier -- '47), and the developments in robotics. Yeah, they touched on aliens and whatnot in Asylum, but I'd like to see them go all out.

The young red head on this show should have been the one picked to play Mary Jane in the new Spider-man films...

I heard the setting will also take place in a circus in the 1950's which would be pretty damn fantastic.

Great show.
