After the Television Critics Associations’ press tour on January 5, Murphy dropped this regarding the show’s upcoming season:

I pitched it to John Landgraf today right after his TCA panel, and he loved it, but he’s asked me not to say what it is,” said Murphy. “I told him and he fell out of his chair with joy. I think people will like it, it’s different from what we’ve done before, but I always try and do the opposite of what I’ve done on that show.

Declining to specify what the theme will be, Murphy did say that it would not be in space and:

All I’ll say about it is I want to go to the future – still topical, but the future, which I’ve never done.

Murphy further dropped a hint regarding the possibility of a crossover between American Horror Story “Murder House” and “Coven”, something fans have been speculating about for some time:

It’s not next season, it will likely be the one after that .
