‘American Horror Story’ shares cryptic teasers for new season on Snapchat

Co-creator Ryan Murphy has hinted that children form an integral part of its plot

American Horror Story has shared a series of cryptic teasers for its upcoming sixth season on Snapchat.

The horror anthology’s latest instalment is due to debut on FX on September 14, but the new season’s theme and full title has yet to be revealed. Co-creator Ryan Murphy has hinted, however, that children are likely to form an integral part of the plot.

One of the teasers, which have been compiled by Comic Book into the video which appears below, shows a knife being pulled down from a mobile hanging above a baby’s cot, which certainly tallies with Murphy’s hint.

Though the new season’s theme has yet to be announced, a number of American Horror Story‘s regular stable of actors are confirmed to be returning, including Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson and Leslie Jordan.

Lady Gaga, who won a Golden Globe award for her performance in the last season, American Horror Story: Hotel, is also coming back for the next batch of episodes. However, fan favourite Jessica Lange – who appeared in the first four seasons, but not Hotel – has confirmed that she has now left the show for good.
