The next season of "American Horror Story" is creeping around the corner, and with theme like "Freak Show," viewers can expect a lot of surprises. With a stellar cast, including veterans from previous seasons, we've learned very little about the actual characters on the show. Enter the lovely Sarah Paulson.

Earlier, the actress took to her Twitter account to reveal to her fans that she will be portraying not one, but two characters on the show! The actress will be pulling double duty as Bette and Dot, a member of the sideshow with two heads.

“So excited to be playing Bette AND Dot this season. Two heads are better than one! #AHSFREAKSHOW

Set in 1950s Florida, "American Horror Story: Freak Show" will follow a German woman (played by Jessica Lange) who runs one of the last sideshows in the United States. In a predictable, yet eternally terrifying turn, showrunner Ryan Murphy unveiled that the main baddie of the upcoming fourth season will be called "the Clown Killer." Swell.

The fourth season is expected to begin its 13 episode run in October and while this season will be Jessica Lange's last, it is shaping up to be absolutely amazing. We are curious to see what oddities will be revealed next! Perhaps the elusive Bearded Lady will finally be unveiled? Stay tuned!
