It’s never long after the season finale of American Horror Story before the theories and the possible plots for the next season begin to pop up. US Weekly has reported that a reliable source has revealed that season 6 will involve the popular internet-born legend of Slender Man.
“Someone else wrote the script, and American Horror Story wants to adapt it to fit the show.” Stated the insider. “They have to buy the rights. Then they’re going to figure out the cast from there.”
The show’s producers want to include Lady Gaga in the next season. Gaga took home a Golden Globe for role in American Horror Story Hotel, so it’s easy to imagine that she might return for season 6. We already reported that Jessica Lange and Emma Roberts would both be featured in the upcoming season. We can only hope that other cast members from previous seasons will also return.
As for the plot, John Landgraf, Chief Executive for FX, has already revealed a couple of hints about the next season to reporters during the winter press tour on Saturday that the next season of AHS will be “set in the present” but will have “echos of the past”. He continued “It’s set in two time periods, but principally in the present.” Landgraf wanted to reveal more, but stopped himself saying “Ryan [Murphy] would kill me if I tease anything”. It has also been said that the next season would be darker than the last. Murphy stated that plot for season 6 has already been mentioned in a previous season, but did not say which one. He also has mentioned that there is a strong possibility that both season 6 and 7 might both happen next year, one season in the fall and one in the spring.
