During a chat with Andy Cohen on 'Watch What Happens Live', American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed the theme for season 7. He told Andy, "I don't have a title, but the season that we begin shootingin June is going to be about the election we just went through.. I think that will be interesting for a lot of people." When asked if there will be Donald Trump character, Murphy teased, "..maybe," before also confirming season 7 will be a present day story, much like Roanoke was.
John Landgraf, FX CEO said "Ryan has another really innovative idea to do something fresh and different", and after Roanoke, which in our opinion reinvigorated AHS, we're confident Murphy will come through.
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters are so far the only cast confirmed to return. This comes hot on the heels of the news that the new season of American Crime Story would center around the Clinton scandal involving President Clintons impeachment after his affair with Monica Lewinski. Like American Horror Story, Sarah Paulson is confirmed to return to American Crime Story, but playing whom, we don't yet know. She's technically be too old to play Lewinski during the scandal, but Sarah's a young looking woman and could pull it off. Personally, I think she needs to play Hillary.
