American Horror Story will tackle the Trump/Clinton Presidential election in their next season.

The sixth season of the FX anthology series concluded last November with a controversial season finale. It has already been announced that three more seasons are coming from the cult show. Season 7 will air later in 2017.

Appearing on US TV’s Watch What Happens Live, AHS creator Ryan Murphy revealed the news, saying that the season is “going to be about the election that we just went through”, adding: “I think that will be interesting for a lot of people”.
