'American Horror Story' season 7 will tackle 2016 presidential election

"Well, I don't have a title yet, but the season we'll begin shooting in June".

In something of an understatement, he added that he thought the series would "be interesting for a lot of people". When asked whether President Trump-based character will feature in the series, he coyly replied: "Maybe".

"American Horror Story" was confirmed for two more season last January, with the remaining contents yet to be announced. It seems like exactly the sort of joke someone like Tina Fey would make - and in fact she did, quipping past year about the presidential race that, "It's like, Ryan Murphy brings you Horror Election!".

It's unclear precisely what Murphy means when he says the new season will be "about" the election.

The producer had previously revealed that season 7 would be a "modern-day story".

So after storylines that have dealt with asylums, murder houses, freak shows, even the lost Roanoke Colony.

Murphy revealed that season seven will tackle the 2016 presidential election that saw former reality host-turned-Republican candidate Donald Trump shockingly defeat former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It seems Ryan Murphy is all about planning the future seasons of his many shows ahead of time. Season 2 doesn't look to be making the load any lighter, however, as that new anthology is now FX's biggest hit.

You know which "election" - the election of 2016, which was a tonic for some and (indeed) a horror story for others.

Murphy has never been shy about his political or social stances so part of this isn't a surprise but people are already saying this season could potentially be one of the most divisive ever. "So we went into season five with the desire to". Last month, FX renewed American Horror Story through Season 9, and in a statement to EW, CEO John Landgraf said, "I'm really excited about Season 7".
