Ryan Murphy Announces Topic for Season Seven of American Horror Story: Politics

On Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Ryan Murphy revealed that next season’s American Horror Story will focus on the 2016 presidential election and politics.

When Cohen asked about the upcoming season, Murphy stated that,“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.”

While the information provided by Murphy is intentionally vague, Murphy (who is well known for changing a season’s direction or content based on fan reaction and ratings mid-season) appears to be about to enter a whole new different type of convoluted story-line.

With the promise of a cross-over between Season One’s “Murder House” and Season Three’s “Coven” in Season Eight featuring multiple characters played by the same actors, maybe Murphy will decide to get in on the action earlier and cast Sarah Paulson as Donald Trump, Hilary Clinton, and Vladmir Putin in Season Seven. If we’ve learned one thing from the wacky world of American Horror Story over the years, it is to expect the unexpected and improbable when it comes to Murphy’s brainchild.
