Season 6 of American Horror Story, Roanoke, was unique for a variety of reasons: The number of episodes, the style of presentation, and the number of tie-ins to other Chapters are just a few examples. Of course, Roanoke may be best remembered for the excitement and speculation it generated before the season even aired.
The promotional campaign was unique in that the theme of Season 6 was kept secret right up until the first episode ran. Fans were given several dozen eclectic trailers and asked to guess on which one was real, and which were intentional misleads. While just as many were annoyed as intrigued, the buzz it created was certainly unprecedented.
American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy has already promised that the theme of Season 7 will not be kept under wraps. Instead, fans can expect to learn the title in the next installment of the FX anthology series, when producers hold a panel on the last day of PaleyFest L.A. 2017: March 26th. We’re basing this assumption on the fact that previous themes have been announced at past PaleyFests.
Whether or not we’ll be given any clues for speculation in advance to March 26th remains to be seen. We’ll definitely keep you posted!
