After much teasing and speculating, the title of the upcoming seventh season of "American Horror Story" has finally been revealed.
The show will premiere on FX on Wednesday, September 5 following last season's "American Horror Story: Roanoke", which debuted without any information being revealed about the theme whatsoever.
The series cocreator, 51, posted a sketch of Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson's characters, who are both wearing black jackets. As part of the new season's marketing, FX also launched a new website where fans can get exclusive "American Horror Story" content. In response to a fan question about Peters' role in the season, which premieres September 5, Murphy said plainly, "More Evan you will get". In the drawing, Peters sports long, scraggly blue hair and looks exhausted, with dark bags under his eyes. Murphy also revealed that the 11-episode season will be set in MI, a key state in the election results. He accompanied it with the caption: "Ally and Kai in CULT...a love story for the ages". AHS: Cult will be set in MI, which might tie into the election theme, considering that MI was a key battleground state.
Evan Peters as Kai and Sarah Paulson as Ally in American Horror Story: Cult. "It makes you think and it will be interesting to see how people react".
Other actors that are confirmed to be returning are Adina Porter (Roanoke), Cheyenne Jackson (Hotel, Roanoke), Marie Winningham (Coven, Freak Show, and Hotel), and Frances Conroy (Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Roanoke).
