According to Deadline, American Horror Story Executive Producer Alexis Martin Woodall recently revealed some information about the upcoming AHS: Cult at the summer TCA Press Tour.
Most notably, Woodall reiterated that the seventh season will not specifically be about the Trump administration. Woodall said that “When Ryan had to make the announcement originally that the season was going to deal with Trump. I think it’s more about what’s going on in our world around us.”
Woodall went on to say that “It’s not what you think it is — and I’m not trying to be cagey. It’s just with all good horror and suspense not knowing is going to be good for you” (and if anything can be said about connecting all of the American Horror Story seasons up to this point, “not knowing” certainly sums up the greatest commonality among all of the previous installments).
Woodall went as far as to describe the new season as “bloody tension, a well-cooked meal, an exciting trip to a grocery store.”
Although Woodall delivered less than concrete information about the new season, fans of tension, fine dining, and exciting trips to Whole Foods may get exactly what they are looking for (and even though producers and creators have stressed that it is not about the recent election as initially announced, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a scene with a presidential look-alike enjoying a tension filled meal or two aboard Air Force One).
As fans of American Horror Story will tell you, when it comes to to absurdism, the sky is always the limit.
