When people talk about American Horror Story
, one of the first things that gets brought up is how different this show is from anything else on television. The hit FX series
gives viewers something completely different with each season.
While the core ensemble of the series doesn’t change much from season to season, the start of each new season means an entirely new theme, setting, storyline and of course new characters.
Over time, fans of the American Horror Story
series have begun to try and connect the dots between each season's stories and characters with all kinds of crazy theories, and as it turns out, they weren’t so far off after all.
The first big reveal
came when Naomi Grossman, who played “Pepper” on American Horror Story: Asylum
reprised her same role in this seasons Freak Show
… And not long after that it was announced
that Lily Rabe would also be joining the cast of AHS: Freak Show
as “Sister Mary Eunice” who was originally from Asylum
season of AHS
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly
, American Horror Story
co-creator Ryan Murphy finally went on the record about the interconnectedness of each season of the FX series.
“They’re all connected. We’re just beginning to tell you how they’re connected. They’re all very separate but there’s clues every season that we’re now telling you how the different worlds are intertwined.”
Murphy was careful not to disclose any new connections between past season of AHS
and this seasons Freak Show
, he did go on to tell EW:
“This is the first year where we begin to tell you that season two is connected to season four which is connected to season one. People have started to write articles about that. A lot of their hypotheses have been completely right on. That’s the fun of the show. Hopefully by the end of the run, be it 10 years or 15 years, people will be able to stand back and be able to say, ‘Oh that was connected to x
.’ There’s definitely a rhyme or a reason and a connectedness to all of these seasons, but in the same way, they’re standalones, which is the fun of it. But it is a puzzle.”
