As if we weren’t living one real-life American Horror Story after another, the FX Cult is taking a cue from reality. Following concerns of an upcoming mass shooting sequence airing too close to the Las Vegas massacre, Ryan Murphy confirms changes to the scene.
The fear factor of the past six seasons of American Horror Story has been predicated on a variety otherworldly scares. Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have spooked us with ghost stories, aliens, witches, vampires, clowns, and beyond. Part of the uniqueness of the anthology series, and why watching a show as sadistic and gruesome as AHS can be so fun and addictive, is the gap between us and what happens on screen. Who doesn’t love hearing a good ghost story, so long it’s not happening to them? But in its seventh year, American Horror Story pivots from fables of supernatural nightmares to satirize the real-world political fears of Trump’s America, and it’s the series’ biggest mistake yet.
Just when you thought the end of Game of Thrones Season 7 might cut you a break from must-see shows, in swoops fall TV with dozens upon dozens of new and returning TV series; enough to drive your DVR to self-immolation. Join us for a sneak peek!
Just when you thought you were over November 2016, they throw in clowns. See the horror that unfurls post-election in the first full trailer for American Horror Story Season 7, and its coulrophobic Cult.
Emma Roberts has been understandably scarce from American Horror Story in recent years, but with Scream Queens wailing its last, the Coven and Freak Show star is joining the Cult. Ryan Murphy confirms that Roberts will be back and “ready for action” in Season 7.
It’s safe to say that American Horror Story is open to experimentation in its advanced age, whether testing out mystery formats or shortening its Roanoke run, but FX and Ryan Murphy may have been cooking up their biggest mystery right under our noses. Murphy says a “secret season” of the FX horror-drama is in the works, but what does that mean?
Just when you thought our long national eye-roll was over, and American Horror Story had finally unveiled its meta-Roanoke premise, Ryan Murphy will throw another curveball. The enigmatic showrunner teases that Season 6 will have a major shakeup midway through, and then again by Roanoke’s end.
