(Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you don’t want to know about the upcoming season of “American Horror Story.”)
Like nearly every “American Horror Story” season, “Cult” has been clouded with secrecy — but co-creator Ryan Murphy is here to solve some mysteries for us about the upcoming season.
According to Entertainment Weekly, FX held a special screening of the first three episodes on Friday evening, followed by a Q&A with network head John Landgraf and Murphy.
Murphy revealed that “AHS” darling Evan Peters will play a number of real-life cult leaders, including Charles Manson, Jim Jones and David Koresh, as well as pop artist Andy Warhol.
