"American Horror Story” will tackle the 2016 presidential election. During an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live!” Wednesday night, “AHS” co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed that the next season of the popular FX horror anthology series would draw inspiration from the recent election that saw Donald Trump edge out former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Ryan said, “The season … is going to be about the election we just went through. I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.”
When host Andy Cohen asked whether there would be a character based on now-President Trump in the series, Murphy replied: “Maybe.”
“American Horror Story” was recently renewed for two more seasons.. The sixth season of the anthology series, “Roanoke,” wrapped its run in November. The seventh cycle, which begins shooting in June, does not yet have a title.
