Season 6 of American Horror Story is getting ready to start soon on FX, and fans still know very little about the plot of the next installment of the anthology series. Recently, Evan Peters sat down for an interview with The Wrap and while he was very careful about revealing too many secrets for the highly anticipated next season of AHS, he did tell us something about his character that fans didn’t already know.
The theme for the upcoming Season 6 of American Horror Story still has yet to be revealed. Showrunner Ryan Murphy teased months ago that he was working with writers to merge two different story ideas together. He also said that the plot may have something to do with children. Beyond that, fans have no idea where the FX series is taking viewers this time around.

What we do know is that Evan Peters will be playing a pivotal role in the anthology series. As an AHS fan favorite, Peters is one of the few actors who has been in every single season, including the upcoming Season 6. While he was very careful not to reveal any plot points that Murphy and others involved with the show don’t want to be revealed yet, Evan did give up a little something about his character and now everyone wants to know more.
Evan Peters had the same answer to most of the questions in his recent interview. The answer was, “I don’t know.” It’s pretty obvious, considering that AHS returns in two weeks, that Evan has to know much more than he shared with fans. That said, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to believe that Ryan Murphy and his crew are keeping as much of the show a secret as they can in order to prevent leaks as the premiere date gets closer.

Peters has been sporting a new red hairdo and fans want to know if it is AHS-related. When asked if his new ginger locks were meant for his role on American Horror Story, Evan Peters answered yes. “I’m trying to figure out if I can say it, yeah. I didn’t do this to my hair,” the actor confirmed.
It may seem like a trivial detail but so far, that’s all we know about Evan’s role in the upcoming Season 6. During the same interview, Peters admitted that some of the details are a mystery even to him. He confessed that even he doesn’t know what the name of the season will be, and fans want to know why there is so much secrecy surrounding it.
Typically, fans will be told much more about the upcoming season of American Horror Story when stars of the show meet up with showrunner Ryan Murphy in the spring for PaleyFest in Los Angeles. This year was different, though. While Murphy did say that anyone on the panel was welcome to join the cast for Season 6, he failed to give away anything about the direction they were headed and has kept that veil of secrecy about the show ever since.

Usually, at least the AHS promos are directed toward the theme of the season and give fans an idea what it will all be about even though we all know they don’t contain actual scenes or actors from the FX show. This time around, FX president John Landgraf has confirmed that the many promos revealed prior to Season 6 have nothing to do with the newest American Horror Story theme and are just misdirects to keep everyone guessing. Apparently, one of the new promos is the accurate one according to Landgraf. The problem is, no one knows which one.
What do you think the theme for Season 6 of American Horror Story will be and how will Evan Peters fit into it? Tell us what you think about the big question mark that remains over AHS in the comments section below.
