American Horror Story: Freak Show Adds Michael Chiklis

chiklisLast night at Paleyfest here in Los Angeles, Ryan Murphy and his team from American Horror Story took to the stage to reflect on American Horror Story: Coven and to look ahead at American Horror Story: Freak Show, the FX series' fourth story arc.

Murphy revealed to the audience that Michael Chiklis (The ShieldFantastic Four) will be joining the freak show; he'll star as Evan Peters' father. 

Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Jamie Brewer, Denis O'Hare and Frances Conroy – as previously reported – are returning as well.

Details about Freak Show pulled from Paleyfest's Twitter are this: The fourth season is about a "freak show" – not a carnival or circus and it will be set in Florida.

Expect the new season to begin in October.

    Finally, Chiklis returns to FX. While this is awesome news. I was holding out hope he would join Sons of Anarchy as a bad ass detective and frankly kill all them sons of bitches including Jax. Even if Sutter has said he’d never cast him because of Vic Mackey being such a beloved character.


    This will be an awesome season for AHS.
