Colton Haynes is about to have one helluva scary summer.
The series, which is shooting now and will premiere in the fall, is somehow tied to last year’s election. Murphy has been only vague about plot, though he did tell the crowd at a Publicists Guild Awards luncheon in February that “the themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories. You will not see [Donald] Trump and [Hillary] Clinton as characters on the show.”

However, he did joke of Sarah Paulson, who presented him an award at the luncheon: “Now as I look over at Sarah Paulson, I think of [Trump aide] Kellyanne Conway. I don’t know! I might be rewriting!”
In addition to Haynes, who previously appeared on Murphy’s and AHS co-creator Brad Falchuk’s Fox series Scream Queens, AHS‘s season 7 cast includes Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Cheyenne Jackson, Adina Porter and Billy Eichner.
