Tonight is the night that American Horror Story finally returns! The upcoming sixth season of the FX horror anthology television series American Horror Story was announced on November 10, 2015. It is scheduled to premiere on September 14, 2016, the first time the series has debuted outside of October in its history. Details about the season’s plot and cast have been kept secret, an approach to publicity unusual for the series, as the theme of the season is usually a part of AHS marketing strategy.
What is known about the cycle’s theme is that it will revolve around children, and in the words of co-creator Ryan Murphy will be “more rogue” and “dark,” in contrast to the previous season, Hotel. After the release of pictures taken from the set in Santa Clarita, it has been widely speculated that the season will incorporate the infamous 1590s Roanoke Colony disappearance. This is the first season not to release a subtitle before the premiere since the first season. However, although not officially confirmed, it has been widely reported by the media that the subtitle will be American Horror Story: The Mist.
Lat August, creator Ryan Murphy said:
“The next thing we’re crafting up is very very different than [Hotel], not smaller. But just not opulent. More rogue and more dark.”
In October 2015, when questioned about clues and hints alluding to the sixth season in Hotel, Murphy revealed he had yet to definitively decide on a theme:
“This is an interesting year in that the idea that we’re dealing with I’ve mentioned in several seasons. It’s been there before. We’ve actually talked about it a lot on the show. I might do that for season 7 but I’m leaning towards that for season 6.”
While little is still known about the theme, it was reported by Entertainment Weekly that the season is quite possibly subtitled The Mist.
To find out what the theme for season 6 is you’ll just need to tune in for yourself, so find out how to live stream the AHS Season 6 premiere below!
