“American Horror Story’s” sixth season premieres in about one month, but the theme still has yet to be revealed.
On Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour, FX boss John Landgraf offered up some clues on the Season 6 theme, dropping a major bombshell: every single teaser released thus far has just been adding to the mystery.
Ryan Murphy, along with the FX marketing team, decided to put out a slew of trailers this year that all tease different settings — but only one of the teasers is accurately depicting the Season 6 theme.
“We decided that it would just be really this year we just thought it would be really fun to keep it a mystery this year. And we are,” Landgraf said at the Beverly Hills press event. “They went out and made many more trailers than you’ve actually seen for hypothetical seasons of ‘American Horror Story.’ One of them is accurate.”
Staying mum on the real theme, Landgraf said, “All I can say is there is a theme. But we’re not going to reveal it because we think it would be fun for the audience.”
Despite the added confusion with Landgraf’s comments at TCA today, there is good news for fans.
“We haven’t talked about an endgame for ‘American Horror Story,'” Landgraf told the room of reporters. “All good things must come to end, but as long as Ryan keeps coming up with fun and inventive ideas and as long as the audience wants to keep seeing it…as long as you can come up with good ideas, you can keep going because it’s not a serialized story that has a beginning, middle and an end…Only time will tell.”
