Yesterday it was revealed that the fourth season of “American Horror Story” would be a period piece. Today we learned a bit more as Entertainment Weekly caught up with creator Ryan Murphy to do a little digging. Read on for the scoop!
“It’s set in 1950,” Murphy told EW. “If you look historically what happened in the year 1950, there’s some more clues in that year. It’s a period piece. We try and do the opposite of what we’ve done before. Jessica Lange has already started practicing her German accent so I’m very excited!””

Below you’ll find the original PR for the fourth season order.
From the Press Release:
FX has ordered a fourth installment of “American Horror Story,” the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning miniseries franchise from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, it was announced by John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions. The network has ordered 13 episodes from Twentieth Century Fox Television.
“Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer,” said Landgraf. “Time and time again he reinvents the form. What he, co-creator Brad Falchuk, and their producers Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong, Brad Buecker, Jessica Sharzer, Douglas Petrie, Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Alexis Martin Woodall, and the entire production team and cast responsible for the ‘American Horror Story’ franchise have done is nothing short of extraordinary. Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. ‘AHS: Coven’ is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better.”
Since its inception, the “American Horror Story” miniseries franchise has combined for a total of 34 Emmy Award nominations. “AHS: Murder House” tied for the most nominations of any program in 2011 with 17, and “AHS: Asylum” received the most nominations of any program in 2012, also with 17.
