"American Horror Story" kept the theme of season 6, which was Roanoke, a well-kept secret until the show premiered. But it seems they are not doing the same for the upcoming season.
In an interview with "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," show producer Ryan Murphy might have revealed the theme for season 7. Based on what Murphy revealed, it seems like the theme for the next installment of the popular anthology horror series is going to be the 2016 presidential election, which a number of Americans consider as a living nightmare.
"Well, I don't have a title, but the season that we begin shooting this June is going to be about the election that we just went through," Murphy shared before adding, "I think that would be interesting for a lot of people."
The upcoming "American Horror Story" election-themed season will not be the first show to feature the issue. Hollywood has seen a number of parodies and interpretations of the 2016 election, which saw the triumphant win of business tycoon Donald Trump for the highest position in the country.
When Cohan asked Murphy if the show will feature a character based on Trump, he did not answer directly. He just teased, "Maybe."
Little is known about the next installment, but, with the latest announcement, "Asylum" and "Freak Show" alum Naomi Grossman expressed her interest in portraying the Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton.
"American Horror Story" season 7 begins filming in June. Cast members Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are expected to return for the next series. The network previously confirmed a three-season renewal, which means that "American Horror Story" has been renewed through season 9.
More updates are expected to roll out in the months to come, when the show starts production.
