We’re just one day away from American Horror Story finally pulling back the curtain on Season 6, but it’s hard to argue that the mystery approach has affected anticipation. Ahead of the big reveal, FX marketing admits to some uncertainty with viewer expectation, as well how the promotional strategy could affect premiere ratings.

Sarah Paulson stands as proof that anyone in Ryan Murphy’s orbit and end up on multiple series, and Cuba Gooding Jr. will learn by example. O.J. himself, the American Crime Story star will make the leap to American Horror Story with a confirmed role alongside Paulson in Season 6.
Less than a week from its premiere, and American Horror Story Season 6 still doesn’t have an official subtitle, let alone more than a few confirmed stars. That said, when one of them is Lady Gaga herself, who could resist a bit of cross-promotion? Is Season 6 trolling us with a “Perfect Illusion”?
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?

It seems absurd to remember that American Horror Story Season 6 will premiere inside of two weeks, while the vast majority of fans know absolutely nothing about the setting or cast. One purported leak seems to be gaining traction, however, pointing toward The Mist as a possible theme and title. Let the wild speculation commence!

The endless mystery approach to American Horror Story Season 6 has proven … trying, to say the least, but however it pays off, future seasons won’t use the same approach. So says creator Ryan Murphy, who also claims the story connections will “explode” in Seasons 7 and 8.
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.
Earlier this week, the mystery surrounding American Horror Story Season 6 got a bit more complex, as FX boss John Landgraf revealed that the majority of existing teasers have deliberately misdirected fans on the theme. Now, a new official promo points in an intriguing direction, but we have to ask – did FX shoot itself in the foot with this “misdirect” approach?
American Horror Story is nowhere near finished clawing at you last nerve with Season 6's mystery approach, but they wouldn’t dream of a season without undeniable icon and Emmy nominee Sarah Paulson, right? Thankfully, FX knows at at least that much, setting Paulson’s return for American Horror Story Season 6.
