Ryan Murphy didn’t exactly mean ‘American Horror Story’ season 7 would be about the 2016 Presidential election after all…
Ryan Murphy surprised a few folks when he announced that the theme for ‘American Horror Story’ season 7 would be centered around the 2016 election, but now he’s walking back that idea just a bit.
In his original announcement about plans for season 7, Murphy said he wasn’t sure if there would be a character based on President Donald Trump but now it appears the show won’t feature either presidential candidate at all.
According to Murphy, ‘American Horror Story’ season 7 will be based around an election but it will be fictional rather based on any facts that happened over this past year.
“The themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories. You will not see [Donald] Trump and [Hillary] Clinton as characters on the show,” Murphy said.
There’s still not a lot known about ‘American Horror Story’ season 7 outside of Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters both confirmed to return to the show.
Last season’s ‘American Horror Story: Roanoke’ was shrouded in secrecy with the plot for the entire series kept from the audience until the debut this past September.
Clearly, Murphy isn’t keeping as much about ‘American Horror Story’ season 7 a secret but he’s still being vague outside of his declaration about the theme based on the 2016 election…in some form or fashion as it seems.
