Ryan Murphy has successfully kept details about the sixth season of “American Horror Story” under wraps. Ahead of the premiere, FX released a host of cryptic teasers and refused to divulge the season’s theme or its central mystery. But last night, audiences finally got to see the premiere and what Murphy and his team have cooked up. The season follows a couple who leave Los Angeles after a violent assault and relocate to a colonial-era farmhouse in North Carolina where they discover a whole host of mysteries and terrors. The episode was also intercut with testimonials of the characters “looking back” on the events and providing their own commentary for a fictional program entitled “My Roanoke Nightmare.” Watch a trailer that shows the full scope of the rest of the season below.
The series first premiered in October 2011 to mostly positive reviews. Over the past six seasons, the series has won two acting Golden Globes, one for Jessica Lange and the other for Lady Gaga, and have also won 13 Emmy Awards. Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates are nominated for Emmys this year for their performances last season.
“American Horror Story” airs Wednesday nights at 10pm ET only on FX.
