After last year’s AHS: Roanoke turned out to arguably be the best season in series history, creator Ryan Murphy has revealed that this year’s upcoming theme will be the 2016 U.S. Election – yes, you’re reading that right.
In what’s shaping up to be a pretty brilliant turn of events from the AHS team, the show’s seventh season is tackling what might be its most down-to-earth source of American horror yet. Truly though, what contemporary American controversy was more horrifying than the 2016 election? No matter which side of the aisle you prefer, this has been an especially vicious year that’s resulted in an America that’s not been this fragmented in decades.
In a quote from FX CEO John Landgraf, he says:
“AHS confronts our deepest fears with unmatched suspense and style. Each new installment is a cultural event, hotly anticipated for its theme, imagery, cast, and twists. We thank the creators and their team, the cast and everyone who has continued to make AHS such an extraordinary series.”
Murphy recently went on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to discuss the upcoming season. In their interview, Murphy has neither confirmed nor denied that Donald Trump will be featured as a character in the upcoming season, only saying “maybe.”
There’s almost no doubt in my mind that Murphy would relish the opportunity to portray Trump as a monstrous being, hell-bent on destroying the world – an image of him that many others have adopted either by choice or out of some desperate attempt to comprehend some of his decisions – but there also comes the risk of unleashing the wrath of President Trump himself, who has never taken kindly to portrayals of his behavior in the media and on television shows.
In terms of casting, only series regulars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have been confirmed, but I’m sure there’s going to be a long list of guest stars that get announced between now and the show’s premiere. There’s no confirmed release date, but fans can expect to get the show in the Fall, as per usual.
It’ll also be interesting to see how Murphy’s American Crime Story – which has already been much more well-received than AHS ever was – will interfere with the production or even the quality of AHS‘ newest batch of episodes.
Until then, we’ll be sure to keep you up-to-date on all AHS-related news, and be sure to take a look at the video of Ryan Murphy’s official season 7 announcement on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, which you can find below.

A/N: Aye I’m back with some Kyle Spencer smut (yes please excuse how ?? it is, all of my smut is like wow?) Surprisingly, I haven’t gotten any smut requests for him, but I needed this in my life, so I wrote it. And quickly, let me fucking share this with you. Like c’mere Eddy, I’ll ride your pony. Just hit me up. Also, the fact didn’t proofread this and it was written at 3:45am might lead to things being a little off.
But seriously, no glove no love. Special circumstances only.
The Swamp Mud is a metaphor, her metaphor. She’s a sophisticated witch with extraordinary gifts. Hiding out as a hippie swamp rat. From humble hillbilly stocks, she’s been a witch since birth. Her power and humanity separating her from everyone around her. In fact, those around her tried endlessly to destroy her in order to mask their own evil purposes. Yet she rose from the ashes stronger than ever, more fully realized. A living testament to the greater ideals of our coven. Power, compassion, and uniqueness. We are lucky to have found her and she us.
