This season is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S.
I’ve been covering the slowly unraveling mystery of the upcoming sixth season of “American Horror Story” with equal parts intrigue and frustration. Between Twitter leak accounts, shots on set, and fake-out trailers, I couldn’t figure out what exactly Ryan Murphy was trying to do.
I don’t know whether to be impressed or baffled. A sweepstakes? A new car? Has season 6 even been WRITTEN yet or are they just desperately stalling?
Even further, the teasers have been trimmed down to 4 out of… actually, I lost track.
So the deal is you’re supposed to select which trailer you think is the true theme. Is this a case of crowdsourcing? Will the show choose the theme that seems the most popular and retrofit to what’s already written, then spend the rest of the season writing on the fly?
I have no clue what FX is doing this season but one thing is for sure: it’s going to be interesting to watch it unfold, whether it’s a triumph or a trash heap.
