It’s official – Ryan Murphy has confirmed the title of American Horror Story’s seventh season!
American Horror Story: Cult
Murphy has previously revealed that the first episode of this season will open on Election Night of 2016 – a real horror story for everyone who lived through it. The season is said to have political undertones, and with this new title reveal it becomes a little clearer how this might be the case. We can expect to see strong ideologies clashing, and supernatural forces interacting with these beliefs.
The marketing so far has referenced a honeycomb structure – strongly implying the hive mentality of bees. This imagery has clear political and cultish undertones.
This season we have Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Adina Porter, Frances Conroy, and Cheyenne Jackson returning as main cast, with newcomers such as Billie Lourd, Lena Dunham, Colton Haynes, and Billy Eichner joining them.
Season 7 will also see the return of the traditional creepy opening credits, which were dropped from last year’s AHS: Roanoke in favour of a more realistic found-footage style season.
AHS: Cult will air in September 5th on FX.
