Even as American Horror Story season 6 is all set to premiere on Wednesday (14 September) at 10pm EST on FX, the network has not shared any details about the show's theme and characters as yet. Although a few scary teasers have been released, there is no official news about the show's plot.
Here is what we know of AHS season 6 so far:
1. Details around who will playing which character in season 6 have not been revealed, but Lady Gaga's return has been confirmed. Alongside the singer, Kathy Bates, Denis O'Hare, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley and Matt Bomer will be seen in the upcoming season of the horror series.
2. Gaga, who recently released her pop single Perfect Illusion, spoke on BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show in London and teased a few details about her character in AHS season 6. The singer said, "The character I'm playing this year on 'Horror Story', she's quite grounded. That might sound ridiculous once you see who she is, but she's very 'in the earth'."
3. While FX is doing everything to keep its theme a secret, TV Guide has listed the show as American Horror Story: Mist, hinting at "mist" being the potential theme. Mist is also the title of one of the many teasers the network has released to promote the new season. The promo features a creature crawling along railroad tracks with some mist in the background.
4. At the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, FX chief John Landgraf announced that teaser trailers released thus far have been "deliberate misdirects" as a part of their marketing campaign. He said, "They went out and made many more trailers than you've actually seen... for different genres and different places. I just love it on an artistic level. One of them is accurate, the others are all misdirects."
5. Landgraf revealed back in January, that AHS season 6 will be "set in two time periods" and specifically, it will be "in the present, with echoes of the past". However, at the 2016 PaleyFest panel, showrunner Ryan Murphy hinted at a theme involving creepy children. 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."
