Official Title and Website Released for ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7

Great news… everyone can finally stop referring to the next season of American Horror Story as “the election-themed season!” The official title for Season Seven was revealed late last night at an event for San Diego Comic Con. The season shall now be known as: American Horror Story: Cult.

Ryan Murphy Releases Production Art for American Horror Story Season Seven

One thing Ryan Murphy can never be accused of is not fueling his fan base’s need for clues to his American Horror Story franchise.

Murphy recently put up this image on his instagram account, sending his rabid fans into their usual hysterics.

The image seems to tie into the “election theme” of Season Seven, with the mask representing a twisted GOP elephant mascot (it also bares more than a passing resemblance to the classic “space jockey” from the original Alien film).  Can an evil donkey be far behind?  How about a sadistic Uncle Sam or Martha Washington?  Time will tell… read more

He has since clarified and re-clarified his statements, and invited newcomers Billy Eichner and Billie Lourd to his established cast of Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters. While speaking with E!
