Do you still think next season will be darker?
Hmmmm. I don’t know what to say. It’s a combination of things. It’s a combination of two time periods, with the main one being the 1950s. I don’t know. We haven’t started writing it yet, so I don’t really know the tone. I like that we had a lot of comedy in this year, and I like the comic characters, so I think that will remain.
People seem to really want American Horror Story: Circus.
I saw those posters. I don’t know where people came up with that idea. Sometimes I think its people wanting us to do topics and doing fan posters. No one has completely guessed what it is.
But you already know what season 5 is?
I do, because it’s a radically different idea from the stuff we’ve been doing and it will take a lot of playing.Personally, I want to see friend of the show and second season's "Pepper", Naomi Grossman, return to the series! My dream would be for her to come back during Season 4 as a circus performer who has a microcephalic baby. She then takes the baby to be institutionalized and then is tormented by the guilt of giving up her child! Hey, Ryan Murphy, what do you think?
