When it comes to the theme of  each season of ‘American Horror Story’ we usually don’t know details until right before the season premieres. Not this time. The series’ creator Ryan Murphy revealed the theme of season 7 of ‘AHS’ on Wednesday night’s episode of ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’.
Unlike in previous seasons a with seriously creepy story-lines like ‘Asylum’, ‘Freak Show’, and ‘Roanoke’, Murphy revealed to Cohen that this season will get political and will center on the 2016 election.

I don’t have a title,” Murphy said. “but the season that we begin filming in June is going to be about the election that we just went through.”

Just before Cohen took a question from a caller he asked “Will there be a Trump in it?”. Murphy simply responded “Maybe”.

‘American Horror Story’ has always been about horror. Now that I think about it, a political plot might be right on track. The U.S. is being plunged into chaos thanks to the current political nightmare we can’t seem to wake-up from. People are concerned about loosing their rights, their homes, and their way of life.  I’ll be honest, I’m terrified for our future.
I’m interested to see what Murphy has up his sleeve this season. I understand why he chose the theme. People are paying attention to politics like never before. But let’s just hope he doesn’t try to be too realistic with it. We have enough coverage of what’s going on in real life politics. God knows, you can’t log on to social media with out your news feed being filled with it. Hopefully, Murphy will continue with the past pattern of taking real life events and twisting it into a new nightmarish beast.
