After much anticipation from the huge fan base of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck’s AHS, writer Doug (Douglas) Petrie finally confirms that season 4’s theme will be that of the carnival.
The twisted, dark and terribly addictive series has covered three themes so far; a haunted house, a psychiatric asylum and most recently a Coven – witches! Rinse and reusing the same extraordinary cast, this show keeps out doing itself year by year with an impressive cast of actors and actresses such as; Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, to name just a few. If you’ve never watched this show I can’t recommend it enough.
So far the only other clues we have been given is that the amazingly talented Jessica Lange (aged 64), will be practising a German accent for her final role in the AHS anthology. The second clue is that it is set in the 1950’s and this is all the evidence we have so far. However rumours and theories have been working their way through the internet, claiming that season 3: Coven’s last few episodes allude to the nature of season 4, such as Myrtle Snow’s theremin instrument (the strange object creating ‘celestial tones’).
But which clues are actual clues? Which clues are red-herrings? All we know is that there are clues! After all, even Ryan Murphy himself said to watch out for clues… But we all know with AHS it’s never that easy to to work out. I mean a theremin is a pretty hard clue Mr Murphy – that is if it is a clue?.. God I love AHS!
