While some actors carry through multiple seasons, and there’s always a general tone of “batshit crazy,” American Horror Story has never been quite definable. It has used a haunted house, an asylum and witches so far, making variety a notable trait of the show. That’ll continue into the fourth season. Co-creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed the fourth season of the series would be another period piece set in the year 1950. “If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year,” he said.
The quote comes from Entertainment Weekly, and here’s the rest of it:
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!
A German accent and 1950; obviously there’s something to do with post-World War II horrors. But in America? Abroad? Will it stretch into communism? Seems like a total 180 from what the past few seasons were, and that’s a good thing.
