By now we’ve come to grips with the fact that American Horror Story: Coven is over and done with. We’ve had plenty of time to remember just how epic this witchy season was, but now we’re turning our attention to Season 4. What does Ryan Murphy and Co. have up their sleeves?

While Ryan likes to keep things very secretive, one of his writers, Douglas Petrie, just spilled the beans about next season while he was a guest on the podcast, Nerdist Writers Panel.

When moderator Ben Blacker asked about the setting for Season 4, Douglas first said, “I can’t say anything.” But when Moira Kirland, a writer for Arrow and Castle, said that she had heard a rumor that a carnival setting had been announced, Douglas was quick to confirm. Don’t believe it for yourself? Check out this podcast around the 33-minute mark and get the confirmation.

We’ve already heard that Sarah Paulson is working on a “special skill” for the new season and that Jessica Lange would be playing a Marlene Dietrich-type character in what, she says, is the last season she’ll be involved with.

Now that we’ve got a huge piece of the puzzle for Season 4 — the location — we’re dying to see the full picture.

But in the meantime we’re thrilled to know a bit more about the highly-anticipated season. A spooky carnival? Count us in!
