Back in early December 2014, fashion doll company Integrity Toys announced a new line of dolls based off the characters within the American Horror Story Coven series.  Cut to almost two years later and finally Integrity Toys have come up with the goods ready for pre-order, but….are we done and dusted with Coven?

Since Coven’s airing, AHS has produced three further series – Freak Show, Hotel and the currently airing Roanoke and the limited amount of news and updates about this line from Integrity has possibly made fans a little indifferent about this reveal.

That said, the reveal by Integrity Toys showcases six pretty damn impressive figures for the new line featuring Jessica Lange’s Fiona Goode, Angela Bassett’s Marie Laveau, Evan Peter’s Kyle Spencer, Emma Robert’s Madison Montgomery, Frances Conroy’s Myrtle Snow and Taissa Farmiga’s Zoe Benson.  Sad to say, no swamp witch Misty Day (played by Lily Rabe).

All 6 dolls are on the FR2013 articulated body with brand new sculpts in the likeness of their characters (check out how close they got with Evan Peters!), rooted hair, applied eyelashes and fabric outfits featured within the show.

Check out more photos below:

 

All dolls are now available for pre-order with the Marie Laveau doll set for release first in December this year and are priced around the US$130 mark.

American Horror Story Moves to the Carnival

AHS Regular Jessica Lange will be back for season 4

The last time we heard anything about American Horror Story’s upcoming fourth season, we were being told that Jessica Lange was practicing her German accent and that the time setting would be the 1950’s.  There’s been many theories scattered around the theme for the new season and now, finally, one has been confirmed.

In a podcast with Nerdist Writers Panel, AHS writer and co-executive producer Douglas Petrie spilled the setting of Season 4. When first asked about it, he quickly responded, “I can say nothing.” Then Moira Kirkland, a writer for “Castle” and “Arrow” also on the podcast, said, “Well I don’t know if it’s true, but I heard carnival.” Petrie responded, “Yes — that was the, it — it does not have a title.”

The theme of carnival or circus were highly popular theories earlier this year when a selection of fan-made posters hit the internet that then went viral with co-creator Ryan Murphy telling EW.com that “No one has completely guessed what it is.” – guess these guys who made the posters were close!

Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett have apparently all signed on for the new season with reports this is set to be Lange’s final venture within the AHS landscape.

Jessica Lange and American Horror Story Returning for Season 4

With American Horror Story: Coven about to wrap up it’s phenomenal season (seriously, this should have been made into a regular series!) co-creator Ryan Murphy (Glee) has let loose on some details of what to expect for the show’s fourth season.

First up, Jessica Lange will be back!  It was noted late last year that Coven would be her last with the franchise but Murphy confirmed that Lange will indeed be back along with the news that Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates (both whom are new comers to the AHS series)  have been approached to return too.

Keep an eye out for little hints sprinkled about the final few episodes of Coven that will reference to where season 4 will be going.  Says Murphy “It’s set in 1950, if you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!”

The 1950’s setting and German accent has fans speculating that series four will take place around the Cold War which took place right after World War II and lasted for most of the 20th century.

This season of AHS has proved to be the most popular yet, pulling in just under 8 million American viewers weekly (up 83% in total viewers over season 2!)

AHS: Coven airs Monday nights on Channel 11.
