FX’s “American Horror Story” season 4 is building momentum with a couple of announcements and exciting news reports. Writer Douglas Petrie coyly teased that we can prepare ourselves for a “carnival” theme not too long ago, while earlier reports also suggested that the new season will be set in the 1950’s. Series creator Ryan Murphy took to twitter on Monday, March 24 to reveal the title of the upcoming season. Murphy included a picture that reads, “Freak Show”.
