The Freaks flag is officially flying for FX.

The network has unveiled our first look at the cast of American Horror Story Season 4, which is titled “Freak Show” and which will bring back a number of series favorites.

There's Kathy Bates with a beard! And Sarah Paulson with two heads! And Michael Chiklis as a strongman!

Take a close look below at the actors and characters who will comprise the carnival at the center of Ryan Murphy's latest creation:

We also know that Matt Bomer will play a warped character of some kind, appearing on at least one upcoming episode.

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on October 8. We cannot wait.

Murder House
American Horror Story welcomed fans to the Murder House on Season 1. It made us scared to move to Los Angeles.

American Horror Story Quotes

Desiree: I wasn't born on a farm, but I know bullsh*t when I smell it, and that's a whole lot of bullsh*t.
Maggie: Go to Hell, triple tits.

Fate. Destiny. Luck. The prisons of man. People pass the time, enjoying the choices life provides--coffee or tea, right or left--as if it matters. We are all just spinning on the wheel. There is but one way to keep off the wheel. It's not youth. It's not beauty or true love. I know how to stay off the wheel. I control my fate. I have survived because I know one must be willing to destroy anyone, anything, even the ones you love, to keep the gods in check.
