American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy has teased an incredibly villainous looking new monster for the upcoming seventh season of the anthology series, giving just a little bit of colour to the entity’s lips, with a focus on the being’s huge elephant-esque nose and ears. Check it out in his Instagram post below:
Now we must remember that the elephant is the official mascot of the Republican party, which President Donald Trump is aligned with. It’s clear that nothing will be held back when it comes to symbolism this year.
So far, Murphy has been very coy about what he reveals in regards to the seventh season’s plot, though we do know it’ll take place on the night of the 45th Presidential election results and beyond. Despite that, Murphy’s promised the election won’t be a prime focus; instead the show will be about everything that comes about BECAUSE OF the election.
He previously teased: “The first 10 minutes of the season, this season, takes place in a very eerie macabre way on election night and there’s something terrible that happens in the lives of our characters on election night as they’re watching it all go down. Which in itself was a horror story, so it’s like a horror story upon a horror story.”
Murphy also confirmed actual archival footage of both Trump and his rival Hillary Clinton would be used in the show, rather than actors to take on the roles.
Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters have been revealed to be returning to the series in new roles, whilst Billy Eichner and Billie Lourd will join for the first time.
American Horror Story is expected to return to FX in the US and FOX in the UK this autumn.
