I’ve been off the AHS bandwagon for a few years. It isn’t like I want to be, but living in this day and age with all the television exposure, there just isn’t enough time to see it all. I adored the first season of the horror series but just didn’t get to the rest.
But the series is still a hit with fans, and at San Diego Comic-Con, we have now learned that Season 7 is American Horror Story: Cult. I love that the series makes a big deal about its newest story, although I think they dropped the ball last year by introducing all sorts of possibilities and then revealing. I feel like many viewers got their hopes up for one idea only to learn that it wasn’t the theme.
But still, you can’t blame the show for its spectacle, and Cult seems to be an interesting direction. We had also previously heard that the season had something to do with the 2016 Presidential Election. I’m also happy to learn that, though the series is an anthology, we still get connective tissue creating a universe of possibilities with fan-favorite characters.
Overall, I’m ecstatic to learn of this news, and I cannot wait to experience this season. You know, when I finish all the other ones.
