Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Season 5 of AMERICAN HORROR STORY subtitled HOTEL was quite the hit show. This time around, at the Hotel Cortez we witnessed even darker story lines along with loads of murder and deceit. With the fifth season having come to a conclusion, we are left wondering what could await us in the upcoming sixth season?
It is still early on in the game when it comes to the next season of AHS and the speculation is swirling around as to what direction the series could be taking. One such possible idea is the involvement of The Slender Man.
According to a source at US Weekly, “Someone else wrote the script, and AHS wants to adapt it to fit the show. They have to buy the rights. Then they’re going to figure out the cast from there.” While this Slender Man idea has by no means been confirmed, it is a nice thought to chew on for now as we await further information. Should this possibility play out to be true, it would no doubt make for an interesting season.
FX Chief Executive John Landgraf previously spoke a bit about things to come saying that the upcoming season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY will be "set in the present," however, "echoes of the past" will be sprinkled in. He went on to say that, "It’s set in two time periods, but principally in the present."
Landgraf then added that he would like to offer more news on the subject but "Ryan [Murphy] will kill me if I tease anything."
Speaking of AHS showrunner Ryan Murphy, we learned not long ago that he had informed some of the actors who they would be playing next season. He told Angela Bassett about her character and she replied with "What?", thus confirming that the actress will indeed be returning.
We also know that Emma Roberts, who did not appear this season has voiced her desire to join in on the fun next season saying:
"Ryan and I said next season we’ll do something amazing and devilish. I love this season, I watch most of it with my eyes closed, but I think I get the gist. I love Lady Gaga so much, so I was like, 'Next season I want to work with Lady Gaga for sure.' "
With SCREAM QUEENS now getting a second season, Roberts' involvement is still up in the air.
The as-of-yet untitled Season 6 of AMERICAN HORROR STORY will air on FX in the fall. We will continue to bring you more on the new season as it unfolds.
