When asked if there would be a Donald Trump character, Murphy simply said, “Maybe”.
American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy will tackle the most recent American election and Trump’s presidency next season. I think we’re going to cast an unknown as Monica. American Horror Story veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are both signed on to return for the next season.
Previous seasons of FX’s anthology series American Horror Story have dealt with a range of terrifying concepts: grisly murders, haunted asylums, demonic possession, and witches, to name a few. Just two days ago, Deadline reported that Mark Boal and Megan Ellison, the writer and producer behind Kathryn Bigelow’s 2012 film Zero Dark Thirty, are crafting a limited series about the events of last year’s presidential race.
Now, it looks like Ryan Murphy, co-creator of “American Horror Story” has made a decision to depict that actual horror onto the TV screens.
On the plus side, showrunner Ryan Murphy didn’t make us spend months guessing what the new season’s theme was going to be.
You know which “election” – the election of 2016, which was a tonic for some and (indeed) a horror story for others. An American Horror Story fan already put some out ahead of Donald Trump’s inauguration. “So we’re still sort of exploring season 4 in season 7”.
“American Horror Story” has now been confirmed on having quite the context once it resumes, one that could be held dear by many of today’s citizens.
Murphy was on Watch What Happens Live this week and revealed some details about Season 7.
“American Horror Story” has been running on the FX Network since October of 2011. “We thought it would really be fun to keep it a mystery”, Murphy told reporters in the lead-up to that season.
