With American Horror Story: Coven behind us, we're already looking forward to Season 4, and star Sarah Paulson is making us Supreme-ly curious about the upcoming season's theme.

Thanks to AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy, we already know that the fourth go-round of FX's hit anthology will be set in 1950 — though he still won't reveal the premise: "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."

Ryan also teased that Jessica Lange was working on her German accent in preparation of her Marlene Dietrich-role.

Now, Sarah is saying that she too has homework: "I'm not working on an accent, but I'm working on something. That's all I can say," she tells Vulture, who tries pressing her for more details. "A special skill. A very special skill."

A popular theory among fans is that Season 4 might be something like American Horror Story: Circus, and Sarah's "special skill" talk will undoubtedly fan those flames of speculation.

Might Sarah be boning up on acrobatics? Trying her hand at fire-breathing? Limbering up for contortions? What do you think the skill might be? Guess away in the comment section below.
