Ryan Murphy reveals political theme for upcoming 'American Horror Story' season

Annette Bening- To play former Governor of Louisiana Kathleen Blanco in Katrina American Crime Story

For American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy, it would be the 2016 U.S. presidential election - and we think he's not alone in feeling this way.

Another point of intrigue is when asked about whether or not the forthcoming theme of "American Horror Story" will have the image or at least the interpretation of President-Elect Donald Trump in it, Murphy simply replied "maybe". While the entire cast is yet to be announced, frequent Murphy collaborators Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson have been confirmed to be starring in some capacity.

Each season of FX's "American Horror Story" has been built around a theme. He revealed it would be a "modern-day story", which makes sense if it will center around the 2016 election. Ryan Murphy revealed the big news during an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday. We kind of need more answers so we can fully understand where this new season may go. Perhaps Murphy is hoping that the same will happen for American Horror Story's seventh season.

Each season of "American Horror Story" focuses on a new story about a different theme or location, though frequently uses numerous same actors. I don't even think the Clintons need to be huge parts of that story. AHS will be all about President Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

But he and FX also know that they can only go back to the standard horror-trope well so often - haunted houses, asylums, insane clowns, degenerate hotels (can hotels be "degenerate?"), and the like.

On the other hand, I can also envision a very different version of this story, one that is inspired by the election, rather than a faithful retelling of it - an allegory, if you will. Recently, Arrow showrunners Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle addressed fans who had concerns with the political overtones of the series' fifth season. "We thought it would really be fun to keep it a mystery", Murphy told reporters in the lead-up to that season.
