Final Presidential Debate Between Hillary Clinton And Donald Trump Held In Las VegasDonald Trump and Hillary Clinton will make an appearance, as characters, on the next season of "American Horror Story," which is inspired by the 2016 election.

Creator Ryan Murphy previously said that neither would be portrayed on season 7, but told E! News that they will both show up — just not as the main characters.

"I think people literally think Sarah Paulson is playing Hillary Clinton, and I wanted to clarify that that is not true," he said. "'Horror Story' is always about allegory, so the election is allegory. It's our jumping off point. It is about the election we just went through and what happened on that night and the fallout of that night, which to many people, from all sides of the camps is a horror story."

Emmy winner Paulson and Evan Peters play the leads of the season, but Murphy has yet to cast the roles of Clinton and Trump.

"No, not yet. We're halfway through the writing and not yet," he said. "But it's really, really fun. It starts on election night is all I'll say ... It's very scary that night for many people. It's fun, you will like it."

Hopefully more than the real one!
