After spending time in a haunted house, an insane asylum, and the witchy woods of Louisiana, American Horror Story is heading to the freak show. Creator Ryan Murphy tweeted Season 4's subtitle earlier today, and it's so damn appropriate I don't know why the show hasn't used it before:

If for some reason that tweet embed doesn't work, it says "Freak Show" in a fancy font. Murphy didn't go into further detail, but the name semi-confirms the news that leaked out last week: American Horror Story is going to the carnival. Or at least something very close to it.
And in other Season 4 developments, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Jessica Lange will play a German ex-pat who manages one of the last freak shows—which are often tied to traveling circuses—in Jupiter, Florida in the 1950s.
What do you think of the freak show setting? What elements would you like to see in Season 4?
