Haunted L.A. homes and bizarre '60s sanitariums are two of the creepy settings "American Horror Story" has used over the years to send viewers hiding under their covers, so it should come as no surprise that the upcoming fourth season of the FX series is reportedly planned to be set in a 1950s carnival fairground.
"AHS" writer and co-executive producer Douglas Petrie broke the news on a recent episode of the Nerdist Writers Panel podcast.
"That's the idea, that's very roughly the idea," Petrie said in response to moderator Ben Blacker's question about whether a carnival would be the setting.
"AHS" star Jessica Lange also recently revealed to NJ.com that she would be sporting a German accent in the show's upcoming season.
German accents? Carnivals? The 50s? This has all the makings of a very creepy chapter in the "American Horror Story" series.
