'American Horror Story 7' Theme: Ryan Murphy Reveals 2016 Election Concept, Might Be Serious [VIDEO]

Close

American Horror Story season 7 might seriously center on the 2016 presidential election.

Many joked about the 2016 election and Donald Trump's subsequent victory being like American Horror Story, and there were certainly many memes quipping "American Horror Story: Inauguration." But it sounds like those jokes and memes are about to become a reality.

American Horror Story co-creator Ryan Murphy appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live this week and revealed the theme for season 7 would in fact be the election America just experience.

"Well, I don't have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through. So I think that will be interesting for a lot of people," Murphy revealed.

Host Andy Cohen was stunned by this news, and asked Murphy if there would be a depiction of Trump in the season. The producer cryptically replied, "Maybe."

It's still not clear if Murphy is joking about this, considering this announcement seemed so informal and off the cuff compared to season theme announcements in the past. Past themes have been announced at PaleyFest or in the case of Hotel, by then-new star Lady Gaga.

Twitter is very mixed on the idea of season 7 centering on the 2016 election, considering how America just went through it in reality:

As for who will be part of season 7, only Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have been confirmed so far, with more cast announcements to come.

Do you like the 2016 election as the theme for 'American Horror Story' season 7?

American Horror Story season 7 is expected to premiere in the fall on FX.
