Ryan Murphy is getting topical and political with the next installment of “American Horror Story.”
While visiting Andy Cohen’s “WWHL” on Wednesday, Murphy revealed that the topic of the seventh season will be the 2016 presidential election.
“I don’t have a title but the season when we begin shooting it is going to be about the election that we just went through,” Murphy said. “So I think that will be interesting for a lot of people.”
Cohen was left speechless — an epic feat in itself — and then asked, “Wow, oh wow … will there be a Trump in it?”
“Maybe,” Murphy responded.
The previous six installments of the hit FX horror anthology series have often been deeply rooted both in the past and the present. For example, the “Roanoke” characters were haunted by members of the 1590s Roanoke Colony.
However, it is not yet known if Season 7 will have a historical aspect or if it will be firmly set in the 21st century.
FX announced in January that there would be at least two more seasons of Ryan’s terrifying creation.
In the meantime, Murphy is promoting his latest FX anthology drama, “Feud.” The first season is subtitled “Bette and Joan,” and is focused on the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as they do-starred in 1962’s “
“Feud: Bette and Joan” premieres on FX March 5 at 10 p.m.
