This past season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY was a rollercoaster of a ride. We were educated on the occult and taken to new places within COVEN. There is a lot of speculation as to what is to come in the future and it looks as if executive producer of the series Ryan Murphy is gearing up for more as he recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly and mentioned bits and pieces about seasons 4 and 5.
Below you can read on to see what he had to say:
"Can you say anything about who’s returning next year definitely?
RM: I don’t wanna say because we haven’t even started the deals, and I literally just locked this thing on Monday. I’m meeting with people too and the writers haven’t even started yet.
Do you still think next season will be darker?
RM: Hmmmm. I don’t know what to say. It’s a combination of things. It’s a combination of two time periods, with the main one being the 1950s. I don’t know. We haven’t started writing it yet, so I don’t really know the tone. I like that we had a lot of comedy in this year, and I like the comic characters, so I think that will remain... Next year will be equally as challenging [as "Coven" was] because so much of it is period and bizarre and crazy and Gothic. My feeling is, if you loved this season, you’ll love next season. It has the same sort of comedic tone to it.
People seem to really want American Horror Story: Circus.
RM: I saw those posters. I don’t know where people came up with that idea. Sometimes I think its people wanting us to do topics and doing fan posters. No one has completely guessed what it is.
But you already know what Season 5 is?
RM: I do, because it’s a radically different idea from the stuff we’ve been doing and it will take a lot of playing."
When more word comes in we will keep you posted.
