The 2016 presidential election was a NIGHTMARE… so it only seems right that it’s inspiring the next season of American Horror Story.
While the Glee creator stayed tight-lipped about whether or not there will be a Donald Trump character, the industry vet DID confirm that the next season “is going to be about the election we just went through.” In fact, Mr. Murphy thinks AHS7 “will be interesting for a lot of people.”
Not to mention, alums of the anthology series, including Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, are slated to return to AHS. The horror miniseries was renewed for two more seasons back in January AND begins filming again in June.
Nonetheless, we shouldn’t be SO shocked to learn about the 51-year-old’s politically driven content, especially since he plans to tackle Bill Clinton‘s sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky for an upcoming season of American Crime Story. Be sure to ch-ch-check out Ryan’s discussion about AHS with Andy (above), and then take a peek at his tease about casting for his various different shows (below)!
