Every fan of the dramatic and often frightening show, American Horror Story, knows that with each season comes a new story line and new characters. Often, the same cast of actors comes back to play new roles in each season and, in past seasons, new actors have been frequently added on to the cast list as well.
Last season in American Horror Story: Coven, young actress Emma Roberts was cast and she played the bratty witch, Madison Montgomery. Roberts and her character quickly became a fan favorite among viewers.
Good news for her fans was announced when it was recently revealed Roberts will be returning for the fourth season, American Horror Story: Freak Show. The Inquisitir reported that it was announced at PaleyFest that Roberts and other cast members, such as Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates and Jamie Brewer, would be returning as well.
Another big piece of news was revealed as well that a new actor will be joining the series. Deadline reported that Michael Chiklis will be in the new season and he will be playing the father of Peters’ character and the ex-husband of Bates’ character. Chiklis is best known for his role on the Fox show, The Shield.
“What a way to come back to my home network,” Chiklis said.
