Like how this season is much, much darker than last season's Coven was.
Oh, and that there will definitely be some parallels to the Asylum season!
'At every freak show, you have the tropes but there's some [that are] unique and weird. It's about something: It's about outcasts and how society at that time … true stories about circus performers who were cast aside.
The story in many ways dovetails with Asylum, because they leave one era and you can see many of them in real life were put into asylums. There's a great symmetry we've come up with that's rewarding.'
WOW! Sounds like it's gonna be a hell of a season!
But that's not all he's revealed!
Ryan actually directed the first episode of Freak Show, which he hasn't done since the first episode of the first season!
Oh, and he revealed how AH-MAZING the 'special-ability cast (aka the world's smallest woman) was!
'It's darker than Coven; it feels very unique. I directed the first one and I haven't done that since the very first one of season one. It feels like a Douglas Sirk movie; it's very 1952 presentational and then the horror is an unexpected jab. As opposed to last year, which was crazy camera work and comedy. This year feels different.
The special-ability cast that we have is amazing and I feel so thrilled because for so many of them, it was their dream to be actors and they didn't have any opportunities. There's a great community. They feel part of something perhaps for the first time in their life and that's an amazing thing that I was really emotional about when I was directing them.'
Ugh! Can it be October 8th yet????
