If a lead role in each subsequent American Horror Story and an Emmy for The People v. O.J. Simpson hadn’t clued you in, Sarah Paulson remains one of Ryan Murphy’s closest collaborators. So it is, that after a universally-acclaimed turn as Marcia Clark, Paulson is confirmed to return for the Katrina-centric Season 2 of American Crime Story.

After weeks of enigmatic and intentionally misleading teasers (and one that was little more than a promo for Lady Gaga’s new single), American Horror Story finally revealed its mystery theme for Season 6 with last night’s premiere of My Roanoke Nightmare — or is it My Roanoke Nightmare: A True American Horror Story? Or American Horror Story: Roanoke? Whatever it is, it’s not likely to make up for the whiplash-inducing shifts in quality of the last three seasons, despite creator Ryan Murphy’s promise of a shorter, tighter and less convoluted installment in the anthology series.
Our long national nightmare has finally come to an end, just in time for a new national nightmare to begin. American Horror Story has finally premiered its sixth season, revealing the show’s newest theme as My Roanoke Nightmare. Find out what woodland scares went down in the premiere and what to expect from the coming season of American Horror Story!
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.
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?
Ryan Murphy may be juggling a handful of projects at the moment, but his new anthology series ‘Feud’ is shaping up to have quite a fantastic cast.
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.
FX bosses have made clear that American Crime Story would plumb a broader criminal focus than The People v. O.J. Simpson, noting early on that Hurricane Katrina would form Season 2's main story. Now, we know the as-yet-untitled follow-up will take advantage of additional episodes, casting some of the nation’s most notable figures.
Just when you thought your frustration with American Horror Story’s coy promotion of Season 6 might be coming to a middle, FX throws a curveball. Only one of the teasers you’ve seen has anything to do with the actual theme and setting, which Season 6 plans to keep under wraps until the September premiere.
American Horror Story: Spider-Eyes. American Horror Story: Spider-Face. Whatever it is, the first Season 6 poster sure isn’t about to tell us, and maybe it’s time FX and Ryan Murphy drop this precious teasing, and just clue fans in on the next season already.
