Be afraid

The next season of American Horror Story is about the 2016 election

Past themes for seasons of the FX television series American Horror Story have been "Murder House," "Asylum," and "Freak Show." For the upcoming season 7, the theme will be the 2016 presidential election.

"I don't have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through," the show's creator Ryan Murphy announced Wednesday night on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "So I think that will be interesting for a lot of people." When asked if this meant President Trump would be a character in the show, all Murphy said was "maybe."

So far, only cast members Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson have been confirmed to return, and details are scant. But based off the theme alone, season 7 could easily be the scariest season yet.
