FX has released an additional eight teasers for the upcoming season of American Horror Story, ranging from a three-legged trapeze artist to a nasty surprise being found in a nearby tent. As always, American Horror Story teasers aren’t necessarily directly translated from the season, i.e. some of these will be more about setting the tone for the season, purported to be darker than Coven, and providing startling imagery to amp up anticipation for Freak Show.
Taking place in the 1950s, American Horror Story: Freak Show follows a traveling carnival as it pulls into the sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. However, the troupe of performers find more than they bargained for when a dark force begins terrorizing them and the rest of the Jupiter population. The season is said to document the survival of the performers and how they combat the dark force that’s beset itself upon them.
Slated to appear in American Horror Story: Coven are Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, Emma Roberts, and Michael Chiklis.
American Horror Story: Freak Show is set to premiere Wednesday, October 8th at 10:00 on FX. You can check out the first teasers for the season here, as well as the extended trailer for Freak Show here.
