Whilst the rest of the cast of ‘American Horror Story’ tend to enjoy a fresh start every season by acquiring a new character and fresh role to tackle it appears that actress Naomi Grossman will be the first to reprise a role from a previous season. Grossman, who played Pepper back in ‘AHS: Asylum’, is back and can be spotted alongside the World’s smallest woman Jyoti Amge in a new still promoting FX’s ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ which is due to premiere on Wednesday 8 October. The action of ‘Freak Show’ takes place 12 years before ‘Asylum’ so its perfectly plausible that Pepper can pop up in both. The new season also stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, Emma Roberts, Finn Wittrock, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, John Carroll Lynch and Patti LaBelle.

“American Horror Story: Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.”
‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ is set to premiere on FX on Wednesday 8 October at 10:00pm ET/PT.
