AMERICAN HORROR STORY Shocker: Season 7 Theme Will Be the 2016 Election

Yes, you read that right… and come to think of it, I can’t imagine a more terrifying topic for the controversial TV series to tackle next.

AHS Showrunner Ryan Murphy broke the startling news last night during his appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, revealing that the 2016 election cycle will indeed be the setting for the next season. Here’s a clip:

While the season’s official title is still to be determined, Murphy did confirm the cameras will be rolling this June, and it’s already known that regulars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will be back. Other details — including other returning players or new faces — have yet to be revealed.

When asked if the new season would feature a character based on Donald Trump, Murphy would only say “maybe.”

Details coming soon…
