We're already terrified.
American Horror Story has been responsible for our nightmares since 2011.
Thank you, Ryan Murphy for some of the most disturbing dreams we’ve ever had.
But it seems that no one can get enough of the cult TV show as it's returning for season 7. YAY.
Here’s what we know so far.
There’s isn’t an official release date just yet, but as usual, we can probably expect the new season to land around September or October. The first five season’s all aired during October and the sixth season aired in September 2016.
We can’t imagine season seven being any different.
UPDATE (25th April 2017):
We found out a couple of months ago that the next season of American Horror Story is going to be loosely based on the 2016 election but show producer, Ryan Murphy has now revealed even more details.
In a new interview, he commented that “the first 10 minutes of the season, this season, takes place in a very eerie macabre way on election night and there’s something terrible that happens in the live of our characters on election night at they’re watching it all go down”.
We’re sure that many fans are going to have an opinion on this one then…
Here’s us thinking that the creators of American Horror Story would keep the theme a mystery for AGES. Turns out, we were wrong and for once, we’re so glad that we were. Creator and producer of the show, Ryan Murphy has just revealed the theme during a guest spot on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
According to him, the seventh season will be based on the 2016 election!
When asked by the talk show host about whether he had any news, Murphy replied that “I don’t have a title, but the season we begin shooting in June is going to be about the elections that we just went through. So, I think that will be interesting for a lot of people”.
Fans have been speculating that it could be a water-based theme after the AHS social platforms tweeted something at the end of season six. Which, as usual, was absolutely terrifying.
What we do know for sure is that it will be linked to Freak Show in some way and that it’ll be “a modern-day story”.
Ryan Murphy has also explained in the past that the theme for the seventh season came to him out of the blue. “It comes to me as it always comes to me. I sit up in bed and I say “That’s it!” I have been mulling a couple of ideas and I wasn’t loving it. Then I was thinking of this other thing and I literally sat up in bed and said “That’s it!” Whenever it happens it’s such a relief because it’s so much pressure”.
Whilst Murphy has confirmed that some of the seasons will eventually cross over, it’s not going to be season seven.
In an unexpected surprise, Chanel #3 - sorry, Billie Lourd - has been confirmed as joining the cast of American Horror Story!
The 24 year old daughter of the late Carrie Fisher has landed a leading role in the seventh season after it’s rumoured that Scream Queens will not be returning.
With the season reportedly being based on the 2016 election, we’re intrigued to find out what role Billie will play.
It’s already been announced that fan favourites Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will be returning for season seven.
None of the other cast members have been confirmed yet but we’re thinking that Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Lily Rabe and Angela Bassett will return.
As with the other seasons, we’re expecting filming to start in the Summer.
Three words - Watch. This. Space.
We’ve got at least three more seasons of the show, that’s already been confirmed -season seven for 2017, season eight for 2018, and season nine for 2019.
