Speculation regarding the title of Season 7 of American Horror Story can to an end at Comic-Con this weekend when it was revealed that the next chapter in FX’s megahit anthology series is: Cult! This news has gone a long way towards reinvigorating interest in the series, which had been under a cloud of doubt since showrunner Ryan Murphy let slip last February that the season is “about the [recent US presidential] election”. It’s clear now that he’s using the election, specifically political affiliation, as a parallel for the horrors associated with cults.
