It’s time to meet the freaks! The first full-length trailer for ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ has finally been released, and we get a first glimpse at all the characters in action. Click to watch!
Ryan Murphy, 48, isn’t holding back on the freaky factor in the new season of American Horror Story. In the new full-length trailer for the upcoming season, fans get treated to all the characters starring in Jessica Lange’s, 65, freak show. We are beyond ready.
‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Trailer
Grab your popcorn and maybe a pillow because American Horror Story: Freak Show is going to be one scary treat for all the AHS fans out there. After a cast photo and terrifying teasers, a full-length trailer was bestowed upon us.
If you thought Asylum was crazy, think again. (Note: Asylum is and always will be petrifying.)
Since this is the first footage of the characters, let’s take a minute to analyze.
1. Kathy Bates as Ethel Darling
Ethel looks formidable, to say the least. In the clip, she’s seen trimming up her beard. She’s got a scowl on her face, so it’s safe to assume she won’t be playing nice.
2. Michael Chiklis as Wendell del Tolito
Looks like Wendell’s the big man on campus. As the strongest man in the world, Wendell has to keep lifting weights. Plus, he’s probably letting off steam from the love triangle he has to deal with between Ethel, Desiree and himself.
3. Angela Bassett as Desiree Dupre
Angela’s character has three boobs. Three. Boobs. Needless to say, we’re intrigued. She’s sure to spice things up in the freak show. Desiree is Wendell’s new wife.
4. Evan Peters as Jimmy Darling
What’s wrong with Jimmy’s hands?! Being the spawn of Ethel and Wendell, Jimmy is anything but normal. His claw-like hands are totally eerie as he slowly undresses a girl. (Anyone else think his hands are very similar to The Penguin’s hands in Batman Returns?)
For the past two seasons, Evan’s pretty much played a nice guy. We’d like to see him get back to his season one roots (i.e. Tate Langdon) and go full-on evil.
5. Sarah Paulson as Bette and Dot Tattler
Double the Sarah Paulson, double the fun! Bette and Dot are definitely two of the most intriguing characters in the new season, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for the siamese twins.
6. Jessica Lange as Elsa Mars
Ah, the true queen. Elsa is the owner of one of the last remaining freak shows in the country, and she’s going to make sure it’s a good one. All hail, Elsa! We also get a sneak peek at Jyoti Amge, who is the world’s smallest woman!
American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on FX on Oct. 8 at 10 p.m.
