The crew behind FX’s anthology horror series America Horror Story is notoriously stingy when it comes to preseason intel, but a boatload of new pics offer our best look yet at the Freak Show.

Entertainment Weekly released a ton of new pics from the upcoming season, offering up a look at the weird and wild cast in action. If you’ve been following the series, you're sure to spot several familiar faces — plus some interesting new ones. Also, it must be said: Michael Chiklis was born to wear a handlebar mustache. Born for it.

Along with the new pics you can find below, Entertainment Weekly also dropped some information on the mysterious plot we’ll be following. Basically, former cabaret star Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange) brings her carnival freak show to Jupiter, Fla., and recruits a few new additions to shake things up.

But we won’t just be following all the internal drama among the group. The new season will feature a new villain, and of course it had to be a clown. Played by John Carroll Lynch, the murderous Twisty the Clown is retired in the small Florida town and none too happy to have Mars’ show in town. He apparently wears a mask to hide the bottom of his face, and you just know we’ll get a peek underneath at some point this season.

American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8, on FX.
