FX has finally released an official trailer for the upcoming seventh season of American Horror Story. The new one-minute American Horror Story: Cult trailer opens in Michigan in 2016 and shows Sarah Paulson’s horrified reaction to the news Donald Trump won the presidential election. AHS: Cult‘s trailer also briefly introduces characters played by Evan Peters, Alison Pill, Billie Lourd, and Cheyenne Jackson.
Politics and clowns mix in the first-look footage as Paulson’s character, Ally, appears to have a fear of both, and visits to her therapist aren’t helping. John Carroll Lynch’s Twisty the Clown makes an appearance in doll form, while Peters’ Kai Anderson seems to be a leader of a cult that takes pleasure from fear and terror.
FX has set a September 5, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT premiere for American Horror Story: Cult. The cast also includes Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Mare Winningham, Colton Haynes, Billy Eichner, and Leslie Grossman.
