Up to this point, only Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange’s characters have been revealed. With the first official poster for American Horror Story: Freak Show unveiled, we get a clearer picture at what some of the other cast members will be up.

Pictured in the artwork are Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, and Michael Chiklis. You might notice the hashtag #WirSindAlleFreaks located at the bottom of the poster. The German phrase translates to “We are all freaks.”

Returning Coven alum Emma Roberts, along with newcomers Finn Wittrock, Patti LaBelle, and John Carroll Lynch aren’t pictured, neither are guest stars Matt Bomer and Wes Bentley.

Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.

The network also released two more video promos titled “Spotlight” and “Caged” featuring a three-legged woman and trapped individual respectively. Check them both out tomorrow. American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.

Clearly, Ryan Murphy enjoyed working with Matt Bomer on The Normal Heart. The White Collar actor reunites with Murphy for American Horror Story: Freak Show. No specifics about his role have been disclosed but Ryan teases it’ll be ‘warped.’ Bomer will guest star on at least one episode of the popular horror anthology series. He may star in more depending on his schedule filming Magic Mike 2.

“I try to get him to do everything for me,” Murphy told EW. “I sent him a text that said, ‘First right of refusal, here’s the role.’ It’s very…warped.”

In other related AHS news, the network released another teaser for the fourth installment, titled “Lick.” The title is pretty self-explanatory. Check it out below. Be sure to catch all the action when AHS: Freak Show premieres on October 8.

Official Description

“Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.”

Though it doesn’t feature any of the cast nor does it reveal too much in ways of spoilers, FX premiered the first teaser trailer. For those who were duped, including myself, to the faux fan-made angelic one that surfaced weeks ago, this one is legit. Titled, “Admit One,” the short clip features a creepy hand offering up a ticket. Check it out below.

American Horror Story just got a little more soulful. Patti LaBelle will appear on the upcoming fourth iteration of the popular FX series. If you recall some of the uniquely outrageous hairstyles the 70-year-old legend sported during the 80s, her addition to Freak Show is absolutely perfect. Those were truly some frightful sights ;)

LaBelle will play the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character. She’ll discover the secrets of Twisty the clown killer. Unfortunately though, Patti won’t be singing on the show. Her arc will reportedly span four episodes. LaBelle’s previous television credits include guest spots on A Different World, Cosby and The Nanny.

The AHS: Freak Show cast includes alums Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett and Frances Conroy, plus newbies Michael Chiklis, Wes Bentley and John Carroll Lynch. Are you excited for Patti’s addition? Weigh in below.

FX just released the first teaser for American Horror Story: Freak Show. Undoubtedly, this will be one of many more to come from the network if they follow the same promotional strategy used for Coven.

The highly-anticipated season takes place at a 1950s carnival sideshow in Florida, run by a German woman played by Jessica Lange. Newbies Michael Chiklis and Wes Bentley join returning AHS alums including Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson. Check out the first promo below.

“I feel like that’s the appropriate reaction you want when you read the first script of ‘American Horror Story’,” she told E! News. “So it’s very exciting and totally nerve-wracking in the best way, because you think, ‘How the hell am I going to pull this off?!’ And as an actor, I think that’s an exciting thing to feel.”
