Update: A photo from Romika Annabell Osorio posted on Instagram confirms her involvement in the show along with Kathy Bates and Cuba Gooding Jr.
It looks like FX’s “American Horror Story” is going back in time once again as it’s been revealed that the sixth season will tackle the mystery of the Roanoke Colony disappearance. Set photos posted by TMZ reveal period locations and the ace in the hole is a photograph of a tree with the word “Croatoan” carved into it.
The disappearance of 118 colonists in the late 16th century has long baffled historians who are uncertain of where these people could’ve gone. There are theories that the colonists carved the word “Croatoan” into a fence post as a way of letting anyone who stumbled across their deserted outpost know that they moved to Croatoan island, which has since been renamed Hatteras Island. However, that hasn’t been confirmed and there are still rumors persisting of something more supernatural having occurred.
According to FX CEO John Landgraf, the sixth season of the show will be, “…set in two time periods…but principally in the present.” It’ll be interesting to see how these two parallel storylines interact with one another. However, knowing “American Horror Story”, they’ll figure out a rather…interesting way for everything to have some sort of cohesion.
It’s been confirmed that Lady Gaga will be returning to the show but no other casting news has been confirmed. We hope to see Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, Cheyenne Jackson and Finn Wittrock return.
