Hot off the American Horror Story: Freak Show plot details [1], we're rounding up the ever-growing cast of the next season — including Finn Wittrock, the latest star announced by Ryan Murphy. FX's horror hit is never the same two seasons in a row, but it does feature some of the same actors in new roles [2], and we already know Sarah Paulson's new look is a unique one [3]. Take a look at who is coming to town for the Freak Show!

Kathy Bates

Kathy Bates, who played the evil Madame Delphine LaLaurie on Coven, will return as a member of the freak show. What "freak" she'll play remains to be seen.

Angela Bassett

Angela Bassett, aka Coven's Marie Laveau, will also return to the show, this time as a member of the troupe.

Sarah Paulson

Series regular Sarah Paulson is also on board for the fourth season. She's playing conjoined twins [4] Bette and Dot, members of the freak show.

Evan Peters

Evan Peters, who has appeared in every season of American Horror Story, will play a "freak" that Lange has rescued.

Frances Conroy

Also returning is Frances Conroy, who will play yet another in Lange's group of "unusuals."

Denis O'Hare

Denis O'Hare will return as "a collector of freaks," according to Vulture [5]. Of his relationship with Lange's character, he hinted, "We'll have lots of scenes with each other, but we'll be battling."
