There was no way American Horror Story would bring in clowns without the biggest of all, but this Freak Show return gets pretty Twisty. See the scariest clown out there make his Cult return for Season 7 with a brand-new motion comic teasing next week’s premiere.
One could go a little mad stitching together the various connections of American Horror Story seasons, and the seventh year looks to be no different. Ryan Murphy teases a Freak Show connection waiting in the wings, along with a terrible, terrible comic idea.
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.
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.

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?

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!
