As if everyday life isn’t scary enough already, American Horror Story is going to take us through the U.S. 2016 election once again. What exactly will be included? Even the showrunner, Ryan Murphy, isn’t sure (as they haven’t chosen a title yet), but when asked if there would be a Trump in the mix, he responded, “Maybe.”
Ryan Murphy discusses the upcoming and highly anticipated new season of American Horror Story on Bravo’s What Watch Happens Live with Andy Cohen in the video below.
When asked about the theme for the newest season, Murphy responds, “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’ll be interesting for a lot of people.”
After the success of Roanoke, Murphy is surely feeling the pressure to keep the series fresh and new, while still capturing the intense and crucial elements it’s known for. This will be the first time the series covers a real event, and with something as controversial as the U.S. election, it’s either going to be a really big hit, or a really big miss.
What do you think of the new theme? Can American Horror Story successfully handle such a controversial real event? Let us know what you think in the comments!
