American Horror Story’s Next Season Will Be All About the Election
The folks behind American Horror Story are masters of the macabre, bringing us a regular dose of the fantastically freaky. Willing to take on the most terrifying tales, they’re about to dive right into the most controversial and strangest story of our time: the 2016 election.
American Horror Story producer Ryan Murphy confirmed the fact himself while appearing on last night’s Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, saying, “[Season 7] is going to be about the election that we just went through, so I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.” No doubt!
But what about the villain in the story? Will it be a figure from the election, or someone completely fictional? Murphy isn’t giving answers. When asked if President Trump might inspire one of the characters, he gave an intriguing “maybe” in reply.
If season seven of AHS does indeed deal with the election (and a Trump-ish character appears), we can safely bet that the president will be tweeting all about it, especially since plenty of folks are already doing so…
