American Horror Story has its usual air of mystery intact for Season 7, but if any addition will make you scratch your head, it’s Billy Eichner’s. The Billy on the Street host and comedian will join Season 7 in a role close to Sarah Paulson’s character, and with an oddly specific choice of attire at that.

We’re a bit further into decoding American Horror Story Season 7 than we were with Roanoke last year, though it seems we may be headed to familiar territory overall. Sarah Paulson teases her supreme Coven role could make a comeback, as producers discuss where the Season 7 idea came from.
The American Horror Story got too real with suggestions that Season 7 would follow the 2016 election, Trump, Clinton and all, until Ryan Murphy clarified the political connection as allegorical. Now, Murphy seems to walk back his words yet again, suggesting Trump and Clinton castings are forthcoming.
American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy gave us a real nightmare with word that Season 7 would follow the 2016 election all over again, but it seems we can sleep a little easier. The prolific FX showrunner clarifies that Season 7 will be more of an allegory, without any terrifying (well, more terrifying) Trump.
As if the American Horror Story name didn’t prove topical enough during the 2016 election, Season 7 may make the connection literal. Creator Ryan Murphy claims that next season will follow “the election that we just went through,” but how specifically might he mean?
It’s getting harder and harder to track Ryan Murphy’s ideas for future American Horror Story seasons, but one standout idea saw the first year’s Murder House crossing over with the Season 3 Coven. We won’t see said mashup in Season 7, but Murphy nonetheless reveals exactly what would bring the stories together, and how absurd Sarah Paulson’s workload would be.
American Horror Story got plenty of road to reinvent itself with an additional two-season renewal, but don’t expect any major shakeups in Season 7. Not only are series staples Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters confirmed to return, but producers promise yet another mystery theme (ugh) for Season 7.
We’ve barely begun the rigmarole of American Horror Story teasing its seventh season, but it’ll be time yet before Ryan Murphy beings his flagship anthology franchise to a close. FX has officially picked up an additional two seasons of American Horror Story, likely taking us through at least 2019. Just like our real-life American horror story!
American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy already promised that Season 7 wouldn’t employ the same closely-guarded mystery theme that made Roanoke rough going at first, but that isn’t going to preclude some fun in the meantime. A cryptic new tease from American Horror Story social media could be putting us out to sea for the show’s seventh year.
Well, it finally happened. American Horror Story: Roanoke has reached the end of its 10-week run, and as promised, near every one of the characters we’ve come to know has died in the woods of Virginia. Next week’s finale looms, but more than one survivor will make a shocking return, including Sarah Paulson’s Asylum character Lana Winters in the first trailer.
