This week we’ll see ‘American Horror Story: Cult‘ return to FX and the latest teaser brings a full on return of Twisty the Clown! At least, as a comic book character. It is still unclear if we’ll be seeing John Carroll Lynch fully reprising his role from ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ but we know from this teaser we’ll get another reference to the character. With Sarah Paulson’s Ally being terrified of clowns it wouldn’t surprise me if she stumbles across an actual comic of Twisty over the course of the season.
You can check out the teaser below which gives us a motion comic of Twisty the Clown that probably isn’t what you would consider kid-friendly:

“You can’t run from Twisty” in this book, and I suspect that we’ll be seeing quite a few clown references pop up to terrify Ally in the upcoming season It isn’t quite clear as to why Evan Peters’ Kai and Billie Lourd’s Winter are trying to ramp up her fear of clowns. While the initial details of the season that we know relate to last year’s election cycle, it seems like it would be more than just an overly zealous Trump vs. Clinton fall out to see this happen.
Speaking of clowns, there was another new little image that puts together a clown, a bee, and that wonderful little phobia with holes popping up everywhere:

Who knows what direction Ryan Murphy will be taking the series though we’ll be starting to figure that out this week when it debuts!
Do you think we’ll see John Carroll Lynch back as Twisty the Clown in ‘American Horror Story: Cult’? Will we see references to any other infamous clowns during the season? Share your thoughts below!
The new season of ‘American Horror Story’ will premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 10/9c on FX.
