‘American Horror Story’: First Look at Season 6

The first glimpse at “American Horror Story” Season 6 is here.

In true top-secret “AHS” form, the logo that was released by FX on Tuesday offered up more questions than answers.

The black and red logo is simply a design of the number “6” and a question mark. The first teaser begs the question of what the theme will be for the sixth season of the horror anthology series.

The logo was revealed on FX’s social media accounts on Tuesday afternoon. Looking back at “American Horror Story’s” past seasons, dripping out bits of information on social media is normal practice — creator Ryan Murphy usually drops casting info and more on his Twitter account.

Little is known about Season 6. Earlier this year, FX CEO John Landgraf told reporters a bit about the new installment, saying it will be set in the present day and will include flashbacks. “It’s set in the present although with echoes of the past,” he said. “It’s set in two time periods … but principally in the present.”

As for casting, the network has not officially confirmed any returning cast members, but in a recent interview, Cheyenne Jackson revealed that he will be back for Season 6.

Lady Gaga also said in an interview that she will be back, teasing, “I can’t promise you how or when or anything like that.” FX has not commented on Gaga’s return.

“AHS” star Sarah Paulson teased her Season 6 return to Variety, telling us, “Now there’s nothing he [Ryan Murphy] could ask me to do that I would say no to. Ever.”

Murphy teased a big cast return this spring at PaleyFest, saying, “I will tell you that every darling person up here that wants to come back can come back.” He was seated with Finn Wittrock, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Angela Bassett, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, Paulson and Jackson.
