The third season finale of ‘American Horror Story’ aired on Jan. 29, and fans are already chomping at the bit to find out what the new setting will be for the show’s next season. Find out what ‘AHS’ creator Ryan Murphy had to say about those Circus rumors below!
American Horror Story completely reboots itself each season, so after Coven cast its final spell on Jan. 29, the show’s creator Ryan Murphy gave in to fans’ desires by offering up a peek at what’s to come.
‘American Horror Story’ Season 4: Circus?
The Internet exploded into a tizzy when a bunch of “AHS: Circus” promos began to pop up a few weeks back, prompting rumors that Murphy & Co. had already decided on the theme for next season. However, Ryan debunked that theory in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“I saw those posters,” he said. “I don’t know where people came up with that idea. Sometimes I think its people wanting us to do topics and doing fan posters. No one has completely guessed what it is.”
Hmm. Well, we at HollywoodLife.com have our own theory, based around Myrtle (Frances Conroy) screaming “Balenciaga” before her death, but Murphy says that next year’s series will take place over two time periods, like Asylum.
“[Season 4 is] a combination of things,” he explained. “It’s a combination of two time periods, with the main one being the 1950s. I don’t know. We haven’t started writing it yet, so I don’t really know the tone. I like that we had a lot of comedy in this year, and I like the comic characters, so I think that will remain.”
What’s interesting is that while Murphy doesn’t know all of the details about Season 4, he’s already completely set on the show’s Season 5.
“I do [know what Season 5 is] because it’s a radically different idea from the stuff we’ve been doing and it will take a lot of playing,” he said.
Color us intrigued!
