So We Might See Clinton and Trump in American Horror Story Season 7 After All!

Despite a previous statement from exec producer Ryan Murphy that in the upcoming Season 7 of “American Horror Story” we “will not see [Donald] Trump and [Hillary] Clinton as characters on the show,” things seem to have changed slightly.

Now Murphy has told E! Online that they WILL be portrayed in the next chapter of FX’s popular anthology series, which will begin on the night of the 2016 Presidential election.

“I think people literally think Sarah Paulson is playing Hillary Clinton,” Murphy told the site, “and I wanted to clarify that that is not true. ‘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. And you know, that show is always so fun when it’s about the zeitgeist and what we’re doing now.”

When asked if Clinton or Trump had been cast yet, Murphy replied: “No, not yet. We’re halfway through the writing and not yet. 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. It’s really a season that will have a lot of people interested, and I think there’s something for everybody in that season.”

Stay tuned, campers, for further updates that will undoubtedly contradict everything you just read!

Season 7 begins filming in June. So far the only confirmed returning “AHS” regulars are Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
