Actress Sarah Paulson will be pulling double duty this season on "American Horror Story: Freak Show," as the star has revealed with a first look at her character(s).

Paulson tweeted out a photo Thursday of her in costume on the show, and fans may have had to do a double take before realizing that no, their eyes weren't fooling them: Paulson will have two heads on "Freak Show." "So excited to be playing Bette AND Dot this season," Paulson wrote. "Two heads are better than one!"

We're impressed that "AHS" is tackling such a visually complicated character, though the effects-heavy series is certainly used to high-tech trickery (and series vet Paulson has already been through the character wringer throughout multiple seasons on the show). It should be exciting to see how Bette and Dot interact with others, but especially with each other.

The ambitious anthology show is back for its fourth outing when "American Horror Story: Freak Show" debuts on FX sometime in October.
