Things could get Trumpy
During a mid-February stop to Watch What Happens Live, Murphy told host Andy Cohen that he didn'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." When asked if a Trump character would appear, Murphy said, "Maybe."
Unfortunately, Murphy walked that tease back a few days later, explaining at a Publicists Guild Awards luncheon in Beverly Hills that the 2016 election would only be addressed loosely. Not literally. "The themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories," he said. "You will not see [Donald] Trump and [Hillary] Clinton as characters on the show."
