Ryan Murphy’s American FX future got a major shot in the arm this week, between announcement of a Season 7 Horror theme and the major players of Versace Crime, and we’re already looking ahead to the Lewsinsky season of American Crime Story. Sarah Paulson is of course eyed for a role, in what might be her most transformative look yet.
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?
We’ve barely begun staffing out the second, Katrina-themed season of FX’s American Crime Story, but already Season 3 has its title characters. Not only is the Versace of our third American Crime Story cast, but so too will Glee and Flash star Darren Criss provide the titular crime.
Ryan Murphy’s second FX anthology proved a surprising hit, but can Feud recapture the same magic? See for yourself in the first official footage of Feud: Bette and Joan, as Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon take Hollywood rivalry to biblical proportions.
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.
The People v. O.J. Simpson made for an appropriate first season of American Crime Story, though the second season’s focus on Katrina and subsequent topics expand the definition of “Crime Story.” Now, Ryan Murphy offers insight into how O.J., Katrina and Gianni Versace open up different conversations, and why we may never see the courtroom again.
We were surprised enough when FX confirmed that Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story was already plotting a third season around the murder of Gianni Versace, but get ready for Season 4! Yes, even with Season 2's Katrina-based season delayed to 2018, Ryan Murphy is already plotting a season around the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
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.
