And that’s not all! The show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, revealed on Twitter that the first episode on Oct. 8 will be 90 minutes long and there are more surprises to come!

“Excited to announce the AHS: Freak Show Premiere on October 8 will be a super-sized 90 minutes,” Murphy tweeted. “AHS Fans, you are also getting a big preview, the main title and TWO cast documentaries this week. Happy October!”

The trailer gives a sneak peek into the actual freak show, showing Paulson as the conjoined twins, Bates as the bearded lady, carnival owner Elsa Mars played by Lange singing and a terrifying Twisty the Clown (John Carroll Lynch).

It’s heart-stopping what he does. I’m worried that people are going to have cardiac arrests…”
