Yep, you read that headline correct as Pepper is set to return to this season's American Horror Story: Freak Show, which is a first for the series.
EW.com reveals Season 2 American Horror Story: Asylum character Pepper, a Briarcliff patient played by Naomi Grossman, will be featured on Freak Show, which is the first time that a character has appeared in more than one season.
Apparently a leaked call sheet first revealed Pepper, and now the series creator confirms it (as well as the first look image below).
“She is in this [season],” confirms Ryan Murphy, which is set 12 years prior to Asylum in the year 1952.
Murphy also revealed that Pepper's stint in the Freak Show is what happened to her previous to going in the Asylum as Jessica Lange's character found her.
"What Elsa has done for 20 years is she goes around to hospitals and jails and rescues these ‘freak’ circus performers who are going to be shipped away to asylums and she signs the waivers and she becomes their guardians,” Murphy explained.
American Horror Story: Freak Show premiers Wednesday, October 8th at 10pm ET on FX.
