TMZ got its hands on the first images from the set of season six, in Santa Clarita, California. One of the creepy clues is a photo of a tree with the word “CROATOAN” carved into the bark. The detail is a dead giveaway that the show will have something to do with the mystery of Roanoke, the North Carolina colony where, in 1590, 117 people disappeared with no explanation. The word “CROATOAN” is the name of a North Carolinian Indian tribe and was carved into a tree in Roanoke, the only clue left behind after the disappearance.
Check out the photos from TMZ here. The outlet has also spotted cast members in “Pilgrim-era clothing.”
As IndieWire previously reported, Lady Gaga will be returning for season six of “American Horror Story.” Gaga won a Golden Globe for her role in season five. Earlier this year, FX CEO John Landgraf told reporters that season six would be “set in two time periods…but principally in the present.” Judging by the new photos, it appears the one of the time periods will be the 16th century. “American Horror Story” returns on September 14.
