American Horror Story has released its first hint at season 6.
On June 28, the first look at American Horror Story hit the internet, but it’s not much of a look. The subtitle for the next season of American Horror Story has been kept under lock and key, so based on the released image we can only guess what we my expect from season 6.
As you can see, all that we know about season 6 is contained withing this piece of typography which cleverly uses a parenthesis and question mark to make the number 6. This is undoubtedly a clue as to the theme of the upcoming installment of the horror anthology series, but FX has given us very little to work with.
Talk about trolling your fans.
Past season of AHS have included the themes of murder house, asylum, coven, freak show, and hotel.
Despite not knowing the exact details of season 6 and what the story may be, Deadline reports that creator Ryan Murphy said at PaleyFest that “The interesting thing about the next season is that we’ve been working on two ideas at once, which we’ve never done.” Murphy went on to say that the type of horror in AHS “often deals with the innocence of children, and their wide-eyed way into it. Both (Season 6) ideas we’re working with have elements of children.”
This comment sparked some fan theories on social media that the upcoming season may be American Horror Story: Orphanage.
Another detail we know regarding the story is that the upcoming season will be set in the present and include flashbacks.
The season will be set in the present day, and will include flashbacks. During the Television Critics Association Press Tour in January, FX CEO revealed that season 6 is “set in the present although with echoes of the past. It’s set in two time periods … but principally in the present.”
We will have to wait to find out what exactly the theme for the next season will be but we can certainly venture some guesses in the meantime. What do you think the next season will be about? Let us know what you think.
No premiere date has been announced, but the next season of AHS is expected to air later in 2016. Past seasons have premiered in October.
