The urban legend of The Pig Man is one of the many threads that have been woven throughout multiple seasons of FX’s megahit anthology series American Horror Story, and many fans are theorizing that the upcoming Season 7 will finally bring this enigmatic character into the forefront. We recently brought you some leaked set pics that included the exterior of a butcher shop; this has become a tent pole of the Pig Man Hypothesis.

The major filming location called “The Butchery on Main” could be both a tie to the Pig Man and Roanoke‘s The Butcher, played by Kathy Bates. The windows of The Butchery also have a very Hotel Cortez-like design which could be an homage to season five’s Hotel.
American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy has also recently shared a couple creature concept pics; these creepers definitely looks like potential Pig Man adversaries. Check them out below.
Another potential connection/hint regarding the Pig Man’s connection to Season 7 could be the recent announcement that a Roanoke-themed maze will feature prominently at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Hollywood. The Pig Man featured prominently in Roanoke (Season 6) and will no doubt be a major component of the maze. If The Pig Man is also a major component of Season 7, also slated to begin sometime this fall, the connection will be especially apropos.
