At the Comic-Con panel for American Horror Story: Freak Show yesterday, executive producer Tim Minear promised the "best season" yet of this beloved FX drama.

He also revealed that it’s the program's “scariest creation so far" will be the carnival's main monster - and it will be played by John Carroll Lynch.

The season sounded good until they cast Emma Roberts in it.

American Horror Story Quotes

Nein. Nein. No matinees. No. People don't come to see freaks in the heat of day, they come in the evening when the darkness moves in and speaks of mystery and the unknown. When logic loosens it's vice grip and the imagination comes out to play. Night allows the stars to shine and we come alive. No. Daytime is for kiddie shows, clouds and cupie dolls. If that's what you're used to, but you're in a real freak show now. MY freak show!

Else

Gloria: Where are you going?
Dandy: I don't know. Maybe St. Petersburg where they have real caramel corn, not that cardboard
they sell at the freak show!
