American Horror Story Season 7

American Horror Story: Twisty the Clown Returning for Season 7 Encore

American Horror Story is plotting one of its most, ahem, twisted returns yet.

Series creator Ryan Murphy on Monday revealed that Twisty the Clown, famous for making a handful of terrifying appearances during AHS: Freak Show, will pop up again in the FX drama’s upcoming election-themed outing.

But like all things AHS-related, there’s a catch involved. According to the photo posted to Murphy’s spoiler-riddled Instagram account, Twisty will only show up in comic book form:

He's Baaaaaack

Despite a series of hints on social media and other avenues, little is known about AHS‘ seventh season, save for a few notable casting choices: In addition to returning favorites like Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, the new cast includes Billy Eichner (Difficult People), Billie Lourd (Scream Queens), Colton Haynes (Teen Wolf) and Leslie Grossman (What I Like About You).

    Glad to see they’re bringing back the only good part about season 4

    • DL says:

      Well, not really. It was the amazing John Carroll Lynch that sold Twisty. This being just a nod in comic book form, we’re not really getting the good part — Lynch’s performance.

      • Wordsmith says:

        The performance was good, for sure, but it wasn’t the ONLY good part about the character. Just the visual of that makeup/mask is really striking all on its own.

      Season 4 was the only one I really liked… Roanoke was ok

  2. Able says:

    How do you think this season will even work?

  3. Does anyone not notice/realize the homage to “Tales from the Crypt” there… oh come on!! The more I hear about Season 7, I worry. Having to wake up to the media pursuing politics into my face is scary enough, I dont want a “horror” show pushing that on me, especially given that horror is usually my escape from the real world

  4. Ahs fan says:

    They really need to bring back season 3 it was amazing one of the best seasons by far please bring back coven somehow

  5. Lisa says:

    Why do they have to tease us with just the “comic” form? I was hoping to watch Mr. Clown in action.
