American Horror Story's New Season Will Draw From 2016 Election

Much as we may try to forget 2016, the nightmare continues to haunt us: Celebrity deaths, terror attacks and, of course, the seemingly endless presidential election makes last year impossible to scrub from our collective memory.

Now "American Horror Story" mastermind Ryan Murphy hopes to resurrect the terrors of 2016 in the next season of FX's hit anthology series, which will draw inspiration from the presidential election.

"The season … is going to be about the election we just went through," Murphy revealed Wednesday night on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live!" "I think that will be interesting for a lot of people."

And while no details are yet known, when asked whether any character will resemble the current president of the United States, Murphy demurred with a casual "Maybe."

"American Horror Story's" sixth season, "Roanoke," concluded in November. The currently untitled seventh season will begin filming in June, and it is probably safe to assume at least a few of the actors from the anthology's recurring ensemble cast will return.
