New ‘American Horror Story’ theme may finally have been revealed

But the show's producers are still keeping fans guessing

American Horror Story‘s latest theme may finally have been revealed.

The sixth season of the FX horror anthology series is set to premiere on September 14, but producers have intentionally kept fans guessing as to its theme for months. They recently revealed that all but one of the many teasers made for the new season are a “misdirection”.

However, as one Reddit user spotted, the latest edition of TV Guide magazine refers to the show as American Horror Story: The Mist on its listings page. The Rotten Tomatoes website also had a listing for a series called American Horror Story: The Mist earlier this week before quickly removing the subtitle, EW reports.


One of the many teasers for the new season was called The Mist, too – watch it below.

Intriguingly, The Mist is also the title of 1980 Stephen King horror novella about a small town which is suddenly enveloped in an unnatural mist which houses otherworldly monsters. Fans are now speculating that if the new season is called The Mist, it could be partly inspired by the King story.
