Twisty the Clown Returning to ‘American Horror Story’ Season 7


Written by Patti Pauley

Turn that frown upside down into a sinister smile in honor of American Horror Story fan favorite Twisty the Clown making a return to the FX horror program for season 7!


Show creator Ryan Murphy has always been keen to give fans clues about the upcoming theme of the next American Horror Story installment, and this year is no exception and quite frankly, seems to be the most controversial of all the past chapters in the FX series history with the series tapping on the the most recent US presidential election. Well, today over on Murphy’s Instagram account, the brain behind AHS slipped fans another sneak peek on what to expect in the upcoming season, and rejoice Freakshow fans! Twisty the Clown looks to be making a comeback!

He’s Baaaaaack

However, with today’s pretty much official statement from Murphy himself via this social media snapshot, I can’t help but think back to a previous post the AHS creator made back in early May that involved a sketch tease of one of the Season 7 creatures to be seen this Fall. Did he actually reveal that Twisty would be back a full 2 months ago? Sneaky, sneaky little Hobbitses Mr. Murphy.
