American Horror Story: Freakshow is in production, on track for an October debut on FX. This season promises to be a real ride as it is set against the backdrop of a traveling freakshow. Akin to American Horror Story: Asylum, the story arc is a period piece and it is set in the '50s.
Jessica Lange, Michael Chiklis, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Jamie Brewer, Denis O'Hare and Frances Conroy are back. Also worth noting: Showrunner Ryan Murphy said to expect an evil, deranged clown somewhere in the mix.
Recently, we learned that Sarah Paulson would be playing conjoined twins (get a look at some concept art here). By the time this summer is over, I have no doubt we will know all of the characters featured on this season. Today, the details of Chiklis' role have been brought into the spotlight.

Chiklis? A strong man? Get out of town…
Good casting! What do you think?
