After seasons focused on witches, freak shows, and the paranormal, American Horror Story's seventh season will tackle what Gizmodo describes as "the most terrifying thing imaginable": the 2016 election. "It's very scary and very fun and very ... topical," producer Ryan Murphy tells E! While appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Wednesday, Murphy was asked if there would be a character based on President Trump but said only "maybe," per the Hollywood Reporter. Filming for the new season of the FX show begins in June. It's expected to air close to Labor Day. (More TV shows stories.)
