Two more iconic women may be joining the ranks of American Horror Story Season 8. Not only has Dynasty legend Joan Collins reportedly joined the cast, but creator Ryan Murphy suggests none other than Anjelica Huston may join 2018’s frights.
Ryan Murphy may be moving his operation to Netflix, but American Horror Story looks as familiar as ever. Newly confirmed for the eighth season are returning faves Evan Peters and Kathy Bates, while Murphy himself hesitates to strike down a certain “Radioactive” rumor.
Ryan Murphy didn’t tease the American Horror Story Season 7 theme quite so harshly as Season 6, but our guessing game is over nonetheless. American Horror Story: Cult is confirmed as our seventh, politically-minded chapter, taking place in the aftermath of the 2016 election.
Ryan Murphy’s first attempts at using Instagram to tease American Horror Story Season 7 were … well, horrifying, but the latest is more mystery than malevolence. Who’s feeling blue in the election-themed return of American Horror Story this fall?
Until American Horror Story proves otherwise, Season 7 is the Year of Billies. Following the addition of comedian Billy Eichner, the seventh run of Ryan Murphy’s FX horror anthology has added Scream Queens star and Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd in a major role.
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.
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.
It’s safe to say that American Horror Story is open to experimentation in its advanced age, whether testing out mystery formats or shortening its Roanoke run, but FX and Ryan Murphy may have been cooking up their biggest mystery right under our noses. Murphy says a “secret season” of the FX horror-drama is in the works, but what does that mean?
The cat finally ran screeching out of the bag last night, as American Horror Story Season 6 finally revealed its mystery theme as … well, they didn’t really give it a succinct name, but welcome to “My Roanoke Nightmare”! And with the revelation, comes our first proper trailer for the season, introducing a few returning favorites in the creepy new footage.
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.
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?
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.
Just when you thought FX might finally unveil of American Horror Story Season 6, the curtain stops halfway. We at least know when the mysterious sixth season will premiere, while the network also sets dates for Donald Glover’s Atlanta and Pamela Adlon’s Better Things.
