American Horror Story closed its sixth season last year, which detailed the mysterious disappearance of the Roanoke Colony in the US. Now, series creator Ryan Murphy revealed that the seventh season will be about a cult, and is called, well… Cult.
The show also revealed the official poster, which shows a woman with clown makeup and her brain exposed, replaced by a beehive. The show’s Twitter account captioned the poster with “Be of like mind,” referring to the hive mind concept where everyone thinks and feels the same way.
American Horror Story’s seventh season will deal with a cult right after the 2016 US elections. Murphy revealed that it will be set in Michigan, it will have 11 episodes, and that Evan Peters (as Kai in his heaviest role yet), Frances Conroy, Mare Winningham, and Sarah Paulson (as Ally) will return. Reports have said that Girls creator Lena Dunham is joining the cast.
American Horror Story is an anthology, which means a new season sees the same cast in new roles. Season 1 was about a haunted house, followed by a mental hospital, a witches’ coven, a freakshow, then a haunted hotel.
AHS: Cult will be released on September 5.
