Trivia
Dominique the song we hear repeatedly during season 2, was interpreted by a Belgian nun called Soeur Sourire and was a big hit in Belgium, France and elsewhere during the 60's. She commited suicide with barbiturates on March 29 1985, because of financial problems.

As of season 4, Sarah Paulson is the only main cast member whose character has not been killed off, or she has yet to play a ghost (not including fantasy sequences of Freak Show). Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Francis Conroy, Lily Rabe, and Denis O'Hare are considered part of the main case and all five of them have played either a ghost or have been murdered in at least one season.

In season 4 (Freak Show), characters sing songs that were released after 1952 (the time period in which Freak a show takes place). Many fans criticized and disliked this, but there is a deep and unique reason to this idea. Ryan Murphy has said in an interview that he picked songs that were made by artists who were known as or called themselves freaks. For example: David Bowie, Lana Del Rey, Nirvana, etc.

Goofs
Frances Conroy ("Old" Moira O'Hara) is right-eye dominant. Many times you can see that she, as Moira, is focusing on the object she's looking at using her "blind" right eye instead of her left eye.

Q
If the ghosts can't leave the house then how did they go to the beach, etc.?
A
The ghosts can travel outside the confines of the property on Halloween. All scenes with Tate, and other ghosts, that take place off the property were on Halloween.
Q
I have not seen previous seasons. Can I watch later seasons?
A
In theory, yes, because each season does follow a totally different story line and theme. But all the seasons are contained within the same universe, and with season 4 and onwards they're linking together the seasons (by using the same characters) so it's recommended you watch it in order just the same as most other shows
Q
Is the series available to own?
A

Season 4 is currently airing.The Complete First Season was released in both DVD and Blu-ray formats on September 25th, 2012.The Complete Second Season: Asylum was released in both DVD and Blu-ray formats on October 8th, 2013.The Complete Third Season: Coven was released in both DVD and Blu-ray formats on October 7th, 2014.Seasons 1-3 can be digitally downloaded from iTunes and Amazon.
