The 6th season of American Horror Story has finally premiered on Wednesday, September 14th to the satisfaction of avid fans. The theme, cast, and basically anything about the upcoming season has been under wraps, or created to throw fans off, and now that the first episode premiered you’d think all would be well in the AHS world, but there’s a catch. I still have no idea WTF the theme is, or I should say what it’s about.
My Roanoke Nightmare has been listed in the credits as the theme for AHS. The theme is alleged to explore the “Mystery of Roanoke aka the Lost Colony, which disappeared in 1590.” The first episode, titled “Chapter 1,” was slated as based on true events and follows a truTV-esque type show about a family telling a story about something horrifying that happened to them with a dramatization intercepted.
AHS alums Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, and Kathy Bates all were featured in the first episode with Cuba Gooding Jr. and André Holland joining the cast. Rabe and Holland play husband and wife Shelby and Matt, with Paulson and Gooding Jr. playing them in the reenactment. Porter is Lee, Matt’s sister, and Bassett is Lee in the dramatization. I feel like I’m in “Inception.”
Matt and Shelby move to a desolate farm-house in rural North Carolina after a tragic event happens to them in California. Strange things start happening: teeth raining from the sky, weird “Blair Witch” dolls being covered in the house, and a weird man with a pig face/mask. It’s all very AHS, creepy and scary. The episode ends abruptly five minutes before the slated running time and fans are confused if they want more or are bored already with this season. I for one am too far deep into the AHS fandom to not watch the complete season. I’m in!
