Whether or not American Horror Story hurt Season 6 ratings with the decision to keep Roanoke entirely under wraps, fans are at least curious to see how the current run changes things up in the coming episodes. Ryan Murphy himself now teases some major Coven and Freak Show connections ahead, while promising a more opaque approach to Season 7.
American Horror Story: Freak Show
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.
It’s no surprise that Ryan Murphy loves to sprinkle horror movie references throughout ‘American Horror Story.’ Remember that time Kit Walker was tortured ‘A Clockwork Orange’-style? How about the use of Bernard Herrmann’s ‘Psycho’ score to amp up the creep factor in one of the scariest episodes of ‘Murder House?’ Or the time Twisty popped out of the hedges à la Michael Myers?
If ever a horror franchise seemed tailor-made for Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights, American Horror Story would be it. So it is, that this fall will bring us a new maze attraction based on select seasons of Ryan Murphy’s FX fever dream, scary clowns and all.
An unfortunate announcement for those familiar with Rose Siggins and American Horror Story: Freak Show, as the notable actor behind one of FX’s most memorable AHS characters has passed away. The real-life amputee and mother of two was remembered as a proud participant in the Ryan Murphy production as “Legless Suzi,” also documented in Ripley’s Believe It or Not and Extraordinary People.
FX and Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story may reinvent itself each year, but did you know that each season shares at least some major connection? Or that major alum from The Walking Dead and Nine Inch Nails have worked behind the scenes? Lock your doors, and hide under the bed, the 26th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ visits the Murder House for some frightful facts of FX’s American Horror Story!
American Horror Story will likely open more than a few Hotel doors with its Comic-Con 2015 appearance, but fans needn’t wait for the latest Freak Show in store. Joining several other alum, Finn Wittrock is the latest to check into American Horror Story: Hotel, and might find himself in yet another bloody romp with Matt Bomer.
American Horror Story may lose more than a few regular stars in Season 5, but the Hotel won’t lack for familiar faces. Following Matt Bomer’s check-in, fellow Freak Show guest star Wes Bentley has officially signed on as a Season 5 regular of FX’s American Horror Story.
Late this past weekend saw American Horror Story Season 5 booking Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson to for a stay in the Hotel, but questions of the returning major cast remain. Now. series lead Jessica Lange confirms her departure of the series, while fellow veterans Sarah Paulson and Denis O’Hare update on their status.
The future of FX’s American Horror Story remains a mystery in Season 5, considering Freak Show’s poor reception and series star Jessica Lange’s likely exit, but it seems we have a new Mother Monster. Lady Gaga herself will join the cast of American Horror Story Season 5, potentially dubbed Hotel, and nothing has ever made more sense, in the history of ever.
