'American Horror Story' season 7 spoilers: Ryan Murphy teases new season inspired by 2016 US elections

(Twitter/@AHSFX)Actress Sarah Paulson is set to return to "American Horror Story" season 7 in a still-unspecified role.

The next installment of "American Horror Story" will deal with a real-life terrifying scenario — the American politics.

During his appearance at the "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen on Bravo, series co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed that the inspiration for the next installment of FX's horror anthology is the 2016 US presidential elections.

"Well I don't have a title," Murphy said. "But the season we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election we just went through, so I think that will be interesting for a lot of people."

When asked if the seventh season will feature a character that resembles US President Donald Trump, Murphy only said, "Maybe."

Murphy previously confirmed during the Television Critics Association (TCA) winter press tour that Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are both returning for season 7. However, the series co-creator opted to keep quiet about the actors' roles next season.

Both Paulson and Peters, as well as Lily Rabe, were the only actors who appeared in all installments of the show since 2011.

Paulson first portrayed the role of Billie Dean Howard in season 1 titled "American Horror Story: Murder House," then returned as Lana Winters in 2012's "American Horror Story: Asylum." She also gave life to the roles of Cordelia Foxx in "American Horror Story: Coven," Bette and Dot Tattler in "American Horror Story: Freakshow," and Sally McKenna and again as Billie Dean Howard in "American Horror Story: Hotel."

In season 6 titled "American Horror Story: Roanoke," Paulson played multiple roles such as Shelby Miller, Audrey Tindall, and again as Lana Winters.

Meanwhile, Peters' roles in the series include Tate Langdon in "Murder House," Kit Walker in "Asylum," Kyle Spencer in "Coven," Jimmy Darling in "Freakshow," James Patrick March in "Hotel," as well as Edward Philippe Mott and Rory Monahan in "Roanoke."

There are no reports yet if Rabe will also return in the seventh season of the horror anthology series.

FX is expected to air the premiere episode of "American Horror Story" season 7 later this year.
