‘American Horror Story’ Rumors: Is Sarah Paulson The Villain Of Election Season?

American Horror Story Doesn’t Have A Name But The Rumor Mill Is Rolling

We know ‘American Horror Story‘ season 7 is about an election but Ryan Murphy is being sparse on any other details. Thankfully at the Publicists Guild Awards luncheon, the mastermind behind the madness let out more details! Murphy clarified his comments from ‘Watch What Happens Live‘, where he made the season 7 announcement.

Said Murphy:

“The themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories. You will not see Trump and Clinton as characters on the show.”

Very sad there won’t be a Ryan Murphy satire of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. That would be amazing but it’s better he stays with “inspired by”. His work in re-telling of true events works in ‘The People vs OJ Simpson‘ but ‘AHS‘ isn’t that type of show. Sticking with inspirations from the election allows for more creative freedom and could lead to one of the best seasons of the long-running series.

Sadly, the hopes for Kathy Bates to play Trump are now dashed.

But the biggest piece of gossip to come from Ryan Murphy’s comments at the luncheon has to be what he said in regards to actress Sarah Paulson.

“Now as I look over at Sarah Paulson, I think of Kellyanne Conway. I don’t know! I might be rewriting!”

It’s being reported Murphy said the comment in jest BUT there could be something more to it. Seeing Paulson in a Conway-like role would instantly make her one of the “baddies” of the season…something she does very well. I think this comment shouldn’t be slept on.

The seventh season begins filming this June so expect more news soon. Sarah Paulson is confirmed for the new season, along with Evan Peters. The two actors have appeared on the show since the first season so expect great things.

What do you think of the upcoming ‘American Horror Story‘ season?
