According to the source, “Freak Show” will take place in Jupiter, Florida circa 1950. The new season will find Jessica Lange playing a German ex-pat who is managing one of the last freak shows in the U.S. Who are Jessica’s “freaks”? They will include Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, and Frances Conroy. They will all be playing performers that Lange’s character has rescued.
