We’re just a little over one month away from the highly anticipated premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show. As such, the hype levels are reaching maximum insanity. Case in point, FX released a brand new teaser for the upcoming season this past weekend, and we here at iHorror have got your back in case you missed it.
In usual American Horror Story fashion, there really isn’t much to the teaser, although it does definitely manage to get across the unconventional vibe that creator Ryan Murphy never ceases to bring to the show. For those unable to watch, the teaser features a man with a split in half tongue (presumably a member of the titular freak show) licking away on a multi-colored lolly pop. Yep, it’s definitely a promotional clip for American Horror Story.
As has become tradition, Freak Show’s cast will feature about a dozen returning faces from past seasons, including Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Gabourey Sidibe, Denis O’Hare, Jamie Brewer, and Frances Conroy. TV veterans Michael Chiklis (The Shield) and John Carroll Lynch (Fargo) are also joining the regular line-up. It’s unclear from the video just which actor is doing the licking, and since we know the freak show includes a bearded lady, the licker may not even be male. Ryan Murphy sure does love his ambiguity.
American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres Wednesday, October 8th at 10/9c. Be there, or have no idea what everybody is talking about the next day. Or watch it, and still have no idea what you saw the next day. Such is the way of AHS.
