The sixth season of FX's American Horror Story will be unlike any season in the show's past, according to co-creator Ryan Murphy himself.
Season 6 of American Horror Story has been shrouded in secrecy from the get-go, with fans still having no idea what the concept will be. There's no subtitle, no character names, no plot points, and Murphy and company hope to keep it that way until the premiere Wednesday.
However, Murphy appeared at the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday and spoke with Gold Derby about the new season, teasing that it will be quite different on a conceptual level.
"It will be familiar and shocking," Murphy said, cryptically. "We're playing with a different form, so it's not like any 'Horror' season you've ever seen. It's very, very radically different - the narrative structure of what we're doing."
Murphy also spoke on why he decided to do things so differently for season 6, as opposed to the big lead-up and announcements for previous seasons.
"We were talking a lot about it before this season and usually I make a big thing about announcing the title, and we just decided to sort of do a Beyonce this year and just drop it and let people experience it and have fun," Murphy said. "It's a horror show and it has suspense and we thought, well, this would fit in this narrative."
While very little is known about season 6, some of the show's regular cast members have been confirming their involvement, including Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson. Character details are not known at this time, though, so fans can only speculate on what their new characters might be like.
American Horror Story season 6 premieres Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX.
