FX recently released several teasers of American Horror Story season 6 on Snapchat, hinting at a possible creepy theme. The network also announced that season 6 of the FX's anthology series will return on 14 September at 10pm EST.
The first teaser shows a baby crying in a cradle as his mother sings a lullaby. There are knives and other twisted metal objects dangling over the baby's crib, and it ends with a demon grabbing a knife. The second teaser shows a woman walking down a low-lit basement stairway, as a pair of hands tries to grab her feet, and she shrieks in fear.
Another clip shows a farmhouse at a distance, with smoke emitting from the chimney that forms the season 6 logo, while the sound of a chainsaw and woman screaming are heard in the background.

While there are numerous speculations regarding the theme for season 6, PopWrapped has confirmed that the show will set out in a "forest". According to the website, AHS season 6 will be a cross between Peter Pan, Deliverance, and The Exorcist, involving a "very scary" farmhouse.
The report went on to reveal that the plot for the upcoming season will be "far more sinister and scary" than previous seasons. A source told the website that "FX is definitely going back to their Horror roots", and that there is a "cultish and terrifyingly childish" feel to season 6. However, there is no official confirmation from FX about the theme of season 6.
Further, the website revealed Lady's Gaga's role in upcoming season. The singer will reportedly play an "evil fairy". The website went on to claim that Gaga is "...perfect for this role. ... [and the role is] her best screen work to date".
Previously, creator Ryan Murphy had teased that children will be involved in AHS season 6. During the 2016 Paleyfest panel, he said, "If you look at horror tropes, the innocence of children, that sort of wide-eyed entryway into some world is always very dramatic and satisfying."
