If there’s one thing I’m not afraid of as an American Horror Story fan, it’s that Ryan Murphy won’t muster up enough creativity to continue on the AHS series for a prolonged period of time. But, if you, for some reason, were worried about it, Murphy's American Horror Story plans at EW Fan Fest should quell your fears. In regards to subsequent seasons, Entertainment Weekly relays that the showrunner “has two ideas” for how it'll go, and that “he has been tossing around the idea of airing two seasons of AHS in 2016.”
Before I get ahead of myself and wildly sprint down my block out of excitement for a possible full year of American Horror Story, I figured that it’d be best to channel this energy into something more productive. Like, say, guessing what could possibly be up Murphy’s maniacal sleeve next. I’m not going to pretend to have an ounce of the genius that he does, but hey, a girl can try, right? And, if I guess right, maybe I’m a psychic. Maybe that could be an idea for a season, too. Hm.
Here are some guesses as to what the next seasons of AHS could be, based on Murphy’s previous works and AHS subplots:
1. American Horror Story: Eternal High School
*Shrugs* Sorry, I had to.
2. American Horror Story: Nightmare
A nod to Nightmare On Elm Street with people getting stuck in their own nightmares? I could dig it.
3. American Horror Story: Summer Camp
Friday the 13th meets scary, forest-dwelling urban legend monster. A way to bring Twisty back, perhaps?
4. American Horror Story: Serial Killer
I know, I know. AHS: Hotel has two subplots with serial killers at the helm. But, that's the thing-- they're subplots. As much as I am intrigued by them, they aren't the focus. How awesome would a season-long serial killer thriller be? Something a la Silence Of The Lambs where they can use a previous AHS serial killer staple to help solve current murders?
5. American Horror Story: Antichrist
Um, a revisitation of baby Michael from AHS: Murder House? Yes please! Besides, I think we, as a society, have established that The Omen, and the concept of a satanic child, chills us to the bone.
But, after all, they're really just guesses (and wishful thinking) in the end. Who knows what Murphy truly has in store.
