Last week at Paleyfest in Los Angeles, show creator Ryan Murphy revealed that the Michael Chiklis (“The Shield,” “Fantastic Four” films) has officially signed on to the cast.

Chiklis is set to play “American Horror Story” alum Evan Peter’s father in the fourth season. Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Jamie Brewer, Denis O’Hare and Frances Conroy – as previously reported – are returning as well.

The few details we know about the season is that it will be set in Florida following a, well, freak show. Expect the new season to begin in October.
