"American Horror Story: Freak Show" now has a premiere date!

The fourth season of the critically acclaimed horror anthology series will debut on FX Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m., said the network in a statement released today.  

The announcement comes with an official new description that reads: "American Horror Story: Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience."
