‘American Horror Story’ season 7 sends in the clown cult


After months of tossing out tiny details about American Horror Story season 7, Ryan Murphy finally gave fans a theme.

The news came from Comic-Con, but it still doesn’t offer much in the way of plot. In February, Murphy claimed the new season would focus on the 2016 election, and in May followed that up with a nightmare-inducing sketch of an elephant mask.

A teaser shows what appears to be a legion of clowns, and Murphy teased earlier this month that American Horror Story: Freak Show character Twisty the Clown would be back. Lena Dunham is also on board, to the dismay of many AHS fans. Also, bees.

Astute fans noticed something in the clip: Around the four-second mark, a non-clown woman can be seen.
