The sixth season of “American Horror Story” will not premiere until the end of the year. But will show runner Ryan Murphy really take things to the next level with a whole new concept? How different will this season be from previous ones? Can fans now guess the setting of the show’s next installment?
According to the International Business Times, FX has yet to confirm what next season will be about. However, veteran “American Horror Story” star, Matt Bomer, did admit the show’s concept would be “different” next season. “I don’t know anything [about season 6], electively,” he said. “It’s coming back, and I know that I will be a part of it at some point…which is great and I’m incredibly excited about it. But sort of electively and also non-electively, I don’t really know what the concept is.”
The actor then dropped a couple of hints about this said concept. “If I told you what the initial concept was before eventually [season 5] became Hotel, your jaw would drop,” Bomer teased. “It’s about as big of a ‘180’ as you can get…. So I don’t want to be teased by one premise, only to find that it’s actually something substantially different.” Just how different will “different” be? Fans will have to wait for the official word from FX to find out.
As Bustle pointed out, the show’s co-creator himself has kept mum about his plans for season 6. He only confirmed that they are still brainstorming about possible settings for the future.
“The interesting thing about this season is we’ve been working on two ideas at once, which we’ve never done,” he said. “Both things that we’re writing right now — we haven’t declared a winner — will have a different form, so we’re excited about that. We’ll talk about it soon, but we haven’t landed on it yet.”
“American Horror Story” returns on FX this October.
