Even as American Horror Story is already looking forward to its next season in secret, Roanoke has only just begun to lay out its mystery (at least before tossing it aside midway through). We’ve heard Ryan Murphy will start to lay groundwork for all the seasons to connect, and our first Roanoke tease of that will connect back to Freak Show.

I know, I know. We all love Stranger Things, but we’ve reached a point in the time since it’s premiere that the Netflix nostalgia-fest is best left on the back-burner until Season 2. Everyone and everything has had their own parody, but we kid you not, this mashup of Stranger Things with Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s iconic opening credits is well-worth your time.

It’s safe to say that American Horror Story is open to experimentation in its advanced age, whether testing out mystery formats or shortening its Roanoke run, but FX and Ryan Murphy may have been cooking up their biggest mystery right under our noses. Murphy says a “secret season” of the FX horror-drama is in the works, but what does that mean?

Just when you thought our long national eye-roll was over, and American Horror Story had finally unveiled its meta-Roanoke premise, Ryan Murphy will throw another curveball. The enigmatic showrunner teases that Season 6 will have a major shakeup midway through, and then again by Roanoke’s end.

Seven seasons in, The Walking Dead serves AMC’s best interest to extend and expand itself as long as possible . We’ve even heard vague suggestions of The Walking Dead continuing indefinitely, as with its comic inspiration, but AMC boss Josh Sapan took things a step further to proclaim their flagship horror-drama as an endlessly renewal franchise, a la Star Trek.

There’s no turning back for The Walking Dead Season 7, especially with just over a month before Negan’s victim finally steps (or kneels) forward.

Karyn Kusama handily delivered one of this year’s best thrillers with The Invitation, an incredibly unnerving and masterful “horror film for grown-ups” that proves you don’t need gimmicky jump scares and supernatural creatures to create chilling atmosphere and spooky vibes. Although her most recent effort wasn’t overt horror, it looks like Kusama’s next project definitely is, as she’s attached herself to helm Breed for executive producer Scott Frank.

‘Blair Witch’ Director Adam Wingard on the Challenges of Making a Scary Sequel and That Wild Ending

Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett have collaborated on several projects together, including recent genre favorites You’re Next and The Guest, in which they subversively repurposed familiar tropes in new and original ways — which is what makes their decision to create a sequel to The Blair Witch Project kind of surprising. A solid follow-up to the 1999 found footage classic, Blair Witch offers recognizable beats with bigger, more frightening (and louder) scares, and a third act that features a pretty clever twist. Ahead of the film’s release, we had a chance to speak with Wingard about the challenges of making a sequel to one of the most beloved horror films, the evolution of found footage and that crazy, mind-bending ending.

Now that American Horror Story Season 6 has officially given up the ghost of its mystery theme, FX must take stock of their unorthodox approach to promotion. It seems viewers may not have been enticed to tune in for the big reveal after all, as early ratings for American Horror Story: Roanoke (that’s the name, we checked) are below that of last year’s Hotel.
