AHS Season 6 Will Go ‘Rogue’


Marlena Carrillo, Staff Writer

The popular horror anthology series American Horror Story (AHS) will be returning for its sixth season.

Following the fifth season, Hotel, the newest installment is, so far, somewhat of a mystery. While previous seasons all included a specific subtitle conveying their theme, no word has been revealed about the name of season six.

AHS mastermind and co-creator Ryan Murphy has remained tight-lipped about the details of the sixth season, previously describing the season as “more rogue and more dark” than the predecessor.

The true theme of the awaited season is supposed to remain a mystery until the premiere. While eight “official” trailers have been released, only one is meant to reflect what viewers will see this season, and the others are simply meant to throw them off.

Returning this season are AHS veterans Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Denis O’ Hare, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and musician Lady Gaga, who joined last season playing The Countess.

Though the theme has yet to be official, fans have developed a few theories on possible storylines this season. One popular idea, based on some set pictures that have been revealed, is that the 1590s Roanoke Colony’s disappearance will be incorporated. As for the setting, FX president John Landgraf stated that the newest season will “principally set in the present,” but will include some scenes from the past as well.

Other possible story ideas include the Bender family murders and Charles Manson, while some fans speculate they may not use a theme at all this season.

American Horror Story, which for the past five years has debuted in October, will instead be back with their sixth season Wednesday, Sept. 14. The show airs on FX, 10 p.m. ET.
