Aside from the new title, theme, Gaga’s casting and the premiere month of October, no other news has been announced regarding the show. Sarah Paulson and Emma Roberts are currently working on other Ryan Murphy projects (American Crime Story and Scream Queens respectively) and series leader Jessica Lange’s possible involvement with season 5 is still unknown.
While noting Freak Show would be her last outing, Lange did reveal to E! back in November that she could be willing to return.
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!)
Get out your tambourines, your shawls and beads because Fleetwood Mac lead singer Stevie Nicks has been confirmed to guest star on American Horror Story: Coven!
Coven co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted “Guess who’s visiting the coven? The legendary Stevie Nicks!”
While no further details were revealed, the show has been referencing Nicks quite regularly with character Misty Day, played by Lily Rabe, obsessed with the singer and the classic song ‘Rhiannon’ in which she cites as being the inspiration for her witchy ways.
It’s not the first time a character on screen has been influenced by the ways of the legendary singer. Back in 2001, an indie movie called Gypsy 83saw Sara Rue as a young outcast obsessed with Nicks and had a dream to one day attend the ‘Night of 1000 Stevies’ in New York.
American Horror Story: Coven, airs Monday Nights, 9:30pm on 11.
