Fans of the horror anthology "American Horror Story: Freak Show" were certainly glad to know that the show is now ready to air the second half of its fourth season. However, recent cast rumors may quell the excitement as reports indicated that the program's two main stars will be off after the conclusion of "Freak Show."
Previous reports already pointed out that this season will be Jessica Lange's (Elsa Mars) last involvement with AHS. Now, according to Enstarz.com, Sarah Paulson, who plays Bette and Dot Tattler, might leave as well.
Paulson will be joining in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's new offering "American Crime Story" as a prosecutor named Marcia Clark.
"American Crime Story" will begin filming in early 2015. Paulson might still have enough time to shoot for AHS.
"The horror anthology series typically films in the summer through the fall so depending on when Crime Story finishes, she could very well do both," Enstarz stated.
More news about "AHS" comings and goings mentioned actor Denis O'Hare on board for the next season.
According to Inquistr.com, O'Hare, who plays as Stanley on the show, might join the cast member's list for the purported 5th chapter of American Horror Story.
"He would love for me to be in next season [of American Horror Story], but that's an informal invitation. When I joined last year I signed a two year contract, so the idea is that I would come back for this year. But until he comes up with the idea and until he finds parts for us, we really have to wait. Last year I got a call, I think about mid-January, where he offered me Stanley, so this year if it all follows the same pattern I should be hearing from him sometime in January or February," O' Hare said.
For the meantime, "American Horror Story: Freak Show" will return on air for its 11th episode titled "Magical Thinking" this Wednesday, Jan. 7, at 10 p.m. on FOX.
