american horror story cult

Thrilled or disgusted at how the 2016 election went down between Trump and Hillary, it was one of the most memorable elections in recent times and the first trailer for ‘American Horror Story: Cult‘ is revisiting it from a unique perspective. Or, actually two perspectives. Now the fun part though is that we aren’t just looking at the results from the election here but are actually getting some teases as to what is coming for the upcoming season. Oh, and a couple of reminders of a particular clown that we were promised would return! How much of his return is happening compared to how much is a phobia is up for debate at this time.

You can check out the trailer for yourself right here!

The focus is of course on fan-favorite Sarah Paulson as well as Evan Peters who both are watching the election in Michigan. Their reactions to who won are a bit on the opposite sides of the spectrum. We’ve already been told that Paulson’s character is in a relationship with Allison Pill’s and it is on full display in this preview where both aren’t too happy with the results of the election. Peter’s character though is clearly more than pleased with the results.

When talking about the upcoming season, Murphy stated that:

“[Cult is] about illuminating and highlighting people who don’t have a voice in our culture — people who are ignored by the current administration and who are afraid and feel terrorized that their lives are going to be taken away.”

From the initial shots that sure does seem to be exactly what we’ll be seeing.
