It's been a long, anxious and speculative wait to find out more details on "American Horror Story" Season 4, subtitled "Freak Show."

The wait is officially over now that we know who Sarah Paulson, aka our favorite Supreme, will be playing when she returns for Ryan Murphy's horror show next season. On Thursday, May 12, Paulson announced her character by tweeting a photo of herself with two heads, who are apparently Bette and Dot. A rep from FX has confirmed that Paulson's tweet.

Two Sarah Paulsons are definitely better than one. In an interview with E! News earlier this week, Paulson said that her reaction to reading the first script was two words: "Holy shit!" The actress described the fourth season as a hybrid between the previous two "AHS" seasons, "Coven" and "Asylum." "There's going to be a little bit of a richer and potentially darker tone the way 'Asylum' had, but with the humor infused from 'Coven,'" Paulson said.

What we know so far about "Freak Show" is that it will be set in Jupiter, Florida in the 1950s, that Jessica Lange will play a German ex-pat running a carnival, Denis O'Hare will play her rival collector of freaks, and Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy and other "AHS" favorites are also expected to return. Hopefully more characters are revealed soon -- we're really hoping a relative of Season 2's pinhead Pepper shows up.
