We still don’t know what American Horror Story: Cult is going to be about, but we’re getting closer, especially now that the main title sequence has been released and President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton make appearances.
American Horror Story: Cult characters include Billy Eichner as Harrison Wilton, Alison Pill as Ivy Mayfair-Richards, Billie Lourd as Winter Anderson, Cheyenne Jackson as Dr. Rudy Vincent, and Colton Haynes as Detective Samuels. The season will also star Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, and Adina Porter. Ryan Murphy previously revealed that Twisty the Clown from American Horror Story: Freak Show will return, and that Lena Dunham will have a role in one episode of the season.
Executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall said the 2016 election, which opens the show, is a way for the series to comment “more about what’s going on in the world around us…[a] streak of paranoia.”
The plot, aside from the whole cult with bees and clowns involved, has been guarded. “We’ve got bloody tension, a well-cooked meal, an exciting trip to a grocery store. I just think it is true to our brand, which is you’re going to be in a whole new world all over again and fall in love with these really special characters and hate yourself for watching it right before you go to bed and love yourself in the morning for making it through the night,” Martin Woodall said.
American Horror Story: Cult premieres Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 10/9c on FX.
