American Horror Story season 7 tease: What is this madness?

American HorrorAmerican Horror Story season 7 will be premiering on FX later this year, and Ryan Murphy has the latest tease via Instagram.

So what in the world does this mean? It’s a very good question, given that to us, the right word to describe what we’re seeing here is rather simple: Horrifying. It’s perfect for this show, but it’s also pretty darn hard to interpret what’s going on here.

For one, the theme for this upcoming season seems to be the election. What does this have to do with that? There are no signs of Republicans vs. Democrats — the symbols for that happen to be elephants and donkeys. That’s certainly a little bit different than this monstrosity. If there is one clear clue here, it could be the hands. After all, their expression within the photo suggests that they are reaching (or “grabbing”) for something, which means that this story could be all about someone being hungry for power; or, their idea of power. Also, there seems to be a small clue of an anarchy star thrown in here, as well.

If the goal for Murphy was to get our attention, then he has succeeded! To date, we know beyond the theme that the likes of Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Billie Lourd will be a part of the show in some shape or form, and that the premiere is likely going to air either in September or October. This could be one of the greatest seasons of the show to date given that it’s edgy and is sure to garner a LOT of attention. It also just so happens to be a season that best represents a risk. It’s going to be controversial, so it better hope that it’s twisted and interesting along the way.
