Ryan Murphy Reveals the Theme for 'American Horror Story' Season 7

While the new cycle does not have a title, Murphy said it'll begin shooting in June.

The 2016 presidential election may have felt like a horror story and now it's going to literally be one! I'm guessing we won't be seeing Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon play Donald and Hillary but whoever it's going to be should be interesting.

When host Andy Cohen asked Murphy if there will be a Donald Trump surrogate character represented in the show, his only response was "maybe".

AHS vets Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are already confirmed to appear, per The Hollywood Reporter, and because this is a Murphy production, we're bound to see more familiar faces. Yup, that's the newly revealed theme for the seventh season FX's horror anthology series, which premieres this fall. Will it feature on the real election or will we see some sort of fabricated election built on top of the U.S. election which will give Ryan Murphy and his team more freedom to work on the "horror" side of things? In the lead up to Season 6, FX debuted multiple teasers displaying different potential themes for the season, that were intentional misdirects.

The sixth season, "American Horror Story: Roanoke", wrapped its run in November of previous year.

To help keep track of all the season seven details as they emerge, The Hollywood Reporter has compiled all the details - so far - and will continue to update this post as more emerge.

It seems Ryan Murphy is all about planning the future seasons of his many shows ahead of time.

So after storylines that have dealt with asylums, murder houses, freak shows, even the lost Roanoke Colony.

Murphy previously gave other clues about Season 7 of AHS, though. Season 4 of American Crime Story will reportedly be about the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Political storylines have been what TV viewers are watching this season, with Saturday Night Live ratings improving this year over last year. "We thought it would really be fun to keep it a mystery", Murphy told reporters in the lead-up to that season.
