Here's What Sarah Paulson Will Look Like in 'American Horror Story: Freak Show'
It's officially time for you to start freaking out about American Horror Story's fourth season, which we already know will be set in 1950s Florida and focus on the owner of a freak show, played by Jessica Lange. Sarah Paulson gave us a sneak peak of the show today, tweeting a photo of the character she'll play.
So excited to be playing Bette AND Dot this season. Two heads are better than one! #AHSFREAKSHOW pic.twitter.com/jdZJSPercnI guess we know who'll be playing the conjoined twins.

To recap: here's what we know about Freak Show, which will air on FX later this year. Lange's freak show owner will be German and the "freaks" will include a beaded lady and a clown killer. In addition to Lange and Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe and Jamie Brewer will be back, but we don't know much about their characters. Michael Chiklis will join the show, playing Bates' character's ex-husband; Peters will play their son. Denis O'Hare will also be back, playing a "collector of freaks" and, ostensibly, Bates' rival.
According to various interviews cast members have given, we also know that the show will shoot once again in New Orleans, despite being set in Jupiter, Florida. We also know that filming will begin in July.
