Ryan Murphy Reveals 2016 Election Theme For ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7


Written by Patti Pauley

Because was there really anything scarier than last years shit show election that had EVERYONE at each other’s throats?

Well, the events surrounding America’s election just a few short months ago must have inspired the hell out of AHS Ryan Murphy, as he just revealed tonight to late night program Watch What Happens Live that American Horror Story season 7 will focus on the November 2016 election.

While promoting his upcoming new FX series Feud starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon as bitter rivals Joan Crawford and Bette Davis, show host Andy Cohen pressed about any details about the popular FX anthology series. Murphy without much hesitation stated that he didn’t have a title just yet but, “it is going to be about the election that we just went through so I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.” Murphy also hinted we may or may not see a Trump character represented in the series.



Well, as reported recently by us at iHorror, Murphy did state this would be a “modern-day tale” of sorts; so he is staying true to those words. American Horror Story was also reported as renewed for two more seasons, with one of these babies possibly ending up as a “Murder House”/ “Coven” cross-over. We also know that season vets Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are set to grace the AHS floors once more in season seven.

Any thoughts on what this interesting theme will bring? Is this ‘election’ focused season the front to bring about an Omen like approach to the Antichrist and politics? More as we learn it!
