The horror has only just begun!
Ryan Murphy isn't telling us the theme of "American Horror Story" Season 6, which premieres September 14, but AHS's monster-chef did tell The Hollywood Reporter he's expecting at least two more rounds, where the connections between the seasons will become more clear.
Murphy said he and the FX suits wanted to created a different experience for fans this year by not following the usual formula of announcing the cast and theme in advance. "But that doesn't mean we'll do that for Season 7 or even Season 8," Murphy teased.
THR jumped on that, and that's where the interview got very intriguing, in terms of what's ahead this year and in the next two seasons:
Seven and eight? How long do you foresee the series going, and when do you plan to have the seasons really start to come together?
You'll see it this season, and then you'll really see it after this season. We lay a lot of pipe, and you'll see it explode in seasons seven and eight. They haven't officially been picked up yet by [FX boss] John Landgraf — he and I always talk at the end of the year and decide how many we want to do. But John has always said, and I have always agreed, that this is a show that could be like 'The Twilight Zone' and run for multiple, multiple seasons and have its own inner mythology. So that's how we're approaching it. I'll keep doing it for as long as we have the ideas and the momentum. I really love doing it.
Do you have a road map for where it goes?
Oh yeah, absolutely. And the seasons are connected, for sure.
Thank heaven! (Or hell?) It's always good to hear there's a plan, and that things will be revealed in time. Now we just have to hope that Season 6 lives up to the hype-happy marketing, and that Murphy is selling it true that the next two seasons will "explode" with even more connections.
