The new American Horror Story theme was revealed and it’s the first good one in YEARS
Finally, I’ll be tuning back in
by Amanda Ross
There's actually a scientific phrase to describe the past few seasons of American Horror Story. It's called "sucked ass." Freak Show, Hotel, Roanoke, and idk what the new one is called — Election? I wanna say? — have all totally sucked ass.
I guess Freak Show was OK. But the point is, nothing's held a candle to the abject glory of Murder House, Asylum, and Coven. I've rewatched those first three seasons more times than I can count but had to force myself to watch the most recent ones, practically holding my eyelids open like in A Clockwork Orange, which I have not actually seen. But I am familiar with the scene in question, so just go with it.
Things are about to tuuuurn around, though, because AHS star Angela Bassett said she'd be happy to return to the show for a new theme idea Ryan Murphey and co. have been kicking around for a while: A MURDER HOUSE-COVEN CROSSOVER SEASON.
At first I was skeptical because !!!! but Twitter account @ahsleak found proof Ryan confirmed it earlier this year:

I have so many questions! Will we finally have justice for Queenie?! Does this mean Violet is a witch?! Can I finally see Jessica Lange again?! WHAT IF CONNIE BRITTON AND HER PERFECT HAIR RETURN SOMEHOW?!
I know we just got done with Halloween and everything, but this new announcement + the end of Lena Dunham's guest starring streak means I want the first 3/4 of 2018 to go by faster than you can say "surprise, bitch!"
