Based on the trailer, I'm really looking forward to the introduction of Billie Lourd and the way she interacts with Evan Peters. The trailer also has a few Twisty the Clown references.

Premieres September 5th, so right around the corner.

Ryan Murphy confirmed that the season will be connected to Freak Show; but will be set in modern day. The season will revolve around the 2016 U.S. election and be representative of both sides of the political divide. He also said that he will be "illuminating and highlighting" groups of people he believes to be "ignored by the current [Trump] administration and who are afraid and feel terrorized that their lives are going to be taken away."

It was confirmed that the season would be set in the aftermath of the presidential election, with the first episode taking place on election night. Murphy explained it will be about "the fallout of that night, which to many people, from all sides of the camps is a horror story." He also stated "Horror Story is always about allegory, so the election is allegory." Archive footage of the election night is going to be used in the season premiere.

The opening sequence of the series will return in this season, following its absence in Roanoke.
