The show’s title has never been more appropriate.
When the sixth season of “American Horror Story” premiered on FX last year, many were joking that nothing the show could bring to the table could ever hope to be as horrifying as things that were actually going on in the country; the real American horror story, they pointed out, was the presidential election. Well, it seems that light bulb also went off over Ryan Murphy’s head.
The co-creator of the hit FX horror series just appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” tonight, and he dropped the bombshell theme reveal of this year’s seventh season:
Well I don’t have a title, but the season we begin shooting in June, is going to be about the election that we just went through. So I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.
When asked if the season would have a Donald Trump-like character in it, Murphy replied with a coy “maybe.”
You can always count on horror to tackle the pressing political issues of any given time, eh?
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will return for the seventh season.
