Ryan Murphy clarified his hints about the next season of ‘American Horror Story’ and if we should be getting ready to see President Trump in it!
Ryan Murphy, 51, set the entertainment world in a tizzy on Feb. 15 when the American Horror Story creator said on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live! the next season of the anthology series “be about the election that we just went through.” While at the Publicists Guild Awards Luncheon in Los Angeles on Feb. 24, Ryan clarified, “you will not see [Donald] Trump and [Hillary] Clinton as characters on the show.”
“The themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories,” he explained during his acceptance speech for Television Showmanship of the Year. In the past, AHS has featured ghosts, asylums, witch covens, a freak show, a haunted hotel, and the Roanoke colony. We’re still not exactly sure what this season is about, but we can’t wait to find out!
Ryan also explained why he said what he did about the new season of AHS. “They gave me three martinis in 20 minutes! That’s not good,” he told the audience about being on Watch What Happens Live! which liberally gives booze to its guests. Even still, Ryan was getting more ideas for his latest season. While giving his acceptance speech on Friday, he glanced at Emmy-winning actress Sarah Paulson who presented the award to him and joked, “Now as I look over at Sarah Paulson, I think of Kellyanne Conway. I don’t know! I might be rewriting!” Now that would be a performance audiences would love to see! For now, we’ll have to keep watching the hilarious Kate McKinnon portray Kellyanne on Saturday Night Live!
