My edges are JUST recovering from the television slayage that was American Horror Story: Coven, and now I’m hearing that Queen Patti LaBelle is joining the cast for the next season of Freak Show!?
YAAAASSSS QUEEEEEN!!!! Slay us all!
How many Queens can you possibly fit into one damn TV show? You already have Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, and Jessica Lange!
Well, if you’re Ryan Murphy or Brad Falchuk, a good TV show can always use at least one more, which is why the two creative geniuses behind Horror Story are adding legendary singer LaBelle to the cast of Freak Show!
LaBelle will be in a total of four episodes next season, and will play the role of Gabourey Sidibes’s character’s mother, a local woman “who begins to unravel the deadly secrets of Twisty the clown killer.”
Is it a Clown killer or a Killer Clown?! Shit, I’m having nightmares already!
That’s pretty much all we know at this point.
As far as the show goes, what we know so far is that it takes place in the 1950’s, in Jupiter, Florida, with Jessica Lange playing the lead as a “German expat managing one of the last remaining freak shows in the country.”
Guess I’ll be watching this season of American Horror Story when it airs this October, will you?
