Shooting will begin in June.

Ryan Murphy, the creator of American Horror Story, said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that the next season would be based on the US presidential elections held in November last year.

“Well, I don’t have a title. But the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through. I think that will be interesting for a lot of people,” he said.

Murphy also said a character based US president Donald Trump could appear in the series. The writer, director and producer is now working on series Feud starring Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon and on the new season of miniseries American Crime Story focusing on the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

i<>American Horror Story has been aired by FX since 2011. The series won several Emmy and Golden Globe awards. The previous seasons revolved around a house haunted by ghosts, a hospital for mentally ill criminals, a coven and other scary things. Donald Trump unexpectedly won the US presidential elections on November 8, 2016. Protest rallies were held in the US and around the world the next day after the elections. Protest actions continue today to respond to Donald Trump’s political views, racist and sexist remarks and dubious business and political reputation, as well as to the measures he has taken in the first few weeks as president.
