We still have no clue what American Horror Story Season 6 is about, but we can identify another member of the cast.
AHS vet Sarah Paulson confirmed Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that she is indeed a member of the top-secret Season 6 ensemble. The current Emmy nominee — for her role as Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson — declined to provide any details about who she is playing in the latest chapter of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology.
This makes Paulson the fourth AHS alum to confirm a sixth-season return; Cheyenne Jackson announced his participation in June; Lady Gaga revealed in March that she’ll be back, though she didn’t say “how or when,” and Angela Bassett let news of her return slip during a February interview with Larry King.
Earlier in the day, FX Networks’ CEO John Landgraf — when pressed about Season 6’s hush-hush premise — told reporters that his marketing team “went out and created many more trailers than you’ve actually seen for hypothetical seasons of American Horror Story, in different genres, different places. One of them is accurate, and the others are all misdirects.”
