2014 Fall TV Spoiler Spectacular!

American Horror Story: Freak Show (FX)

Tune In: Wed, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m.
Tell Me More: Come one, come all to the freakiest show on television! Our favorite anthology series is coming back and we can't wait to see Jessica Lange take on the diva-esque role of Elsa Mars, the owner of one of the last remaining freak shows in America. The year? 1952. The setting? Jupiter, Florida. The freaks? Well hang on to your top-hats because we're in for a twisted new batch of characters...

Star Sarah Paulson previously teased to ET that her role "requires a lot of physical things," and she certainly wasn't lying! Paulson will bring double the trouble playing conjoined twins Bette and Dot, while Emmy-winner Kathy Bates will don some extra facial hair as the bearded lady.

Angela Bassett is also set to join in on the fun,and before she discovered her character's quirk, she told ET she was only given one clue: "[Creator Ryan Murphy] just told me that I'm not the bearded lady, but he told me, 'Oooh it's better than that!'" Bassett will be showing off her many assets as a woman with three breasts!

And are you ready to climb up a complicated family tree? Michael Chiklis will transform into strong man Wendell Del Toredo, who was once married to Bates' character, Effil Darling, and is Bassett's character's new husband. Evan Peters will play Wendell and Effil's son, Jimmy Darling.
