Ryan Murphy unveils the theme of the next “American Horror Story,” and it’s a doozy

Season Six of American Horror Story was preceded by a series of misdirecting trailers that aimed to keep its central theme a mystery — but Ryan Murphy is being quite upfront about what he’s got in store for Season Seven.

“I don’t have a title,” he said Wednesday during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live. “But the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about  the election that we just went through. I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.”

Asked if Trump would actually be a character on the show, Murphy replied, “Maybe.”

    Since when has Ryan Murphy been relevant?

    • truckproductions

      He’s only had some of the most critically acclaimed network and cable shows in the last decade.. Directed award winning films including one about the aids crisis.. but yeah, he’s SO irrelevant.. #eyerollthisqueen

      Oh, poor “Jason Evans,” just the latest in a succession of profiles used by the same conservative troll trying to make themselves relevant by poo-pooing everything that Queerty posts. They think if they tick off enough people they will be someone, and someone will notice them. But, they just look foolish and uninformed. I hope you get paid a lot for each post, “Jason.”

    Love AHS, watched every season, love Murphy, great at his craft…as much as a horror this election was, I can’t imagine how he will work it into the AHS genre…but as long as it is better than S6 Roanoke…my least favorite.

    Plz don’t. js

    I love AHS (even though Ronoake was janky as crap) almost as much as TWD. I think what has made AHS so popular is the “creepiness” factor. How are you gonna make Election (?) creepy? Plz don’t taint a good show with something like this… plz!

  • DCguy

    Love a lot of his shows, but I just can’t watch this. Sarandon as Bette Davis? Sorry, she wore out her welcome during the election.

    But WHEN will Lang come back on to AHS?!?! Miss her, she is incredible!!

    Love AHS, Jessica Lang is my girl. That theme though for next season…ain’t nobody got time to re-live that
