Season 6 of American Horror Story is officially underway, and there are still a lot of questions that haven’t been answered.
Fortunately, Cuba Gooding Jr., the newest addition to Ryan Murphy’s hit show, just dropped a major spoiler during a pre-Emmy interview. What did Gooding reveal about American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare?
Elite Daily reports that Gooding equated the new season of AHS to the classic show The Twilight Zone.
“If you watch those 13 episodes – it’s like what The Twilight Zone did with one episode,” Gooding explained. “This season, remember I said that… When you see this season, you’ll realize how to interpret that Twilight Zone idea to an entire other level.”
Gooding didn’t stop there.
“When your head goes ‘boom’ and you’ve got brains all over the wall, you’re going to be like, ‘Motherf***ing Cuba Good Jr.’ I wish I could tell you when it happens, but I can’t,” he stated.
Although Gooding may have dropped a major hint about the new season, he stopped short of revealing too many details.
“I’m just trying to phrase this so I can keep myself safe… Because I don’t want anybody to get mad at me. Because they never give you information. When I go, ‘Who’s playing the real Matt?’ They go, ‘Andre’ and I go, ‘From The Knick?’ Oh my god, I love that guy, I can’t wait to see him.'”
What did Gooding mean by comparing American Horror Story to the Twilight Zone?
The actor’s comments might reveal that this season will include multiple chapters. Not only does this allow room for the Roanoke storyline, but it could also mean that fans will get to see the rumored Charles Manson theme and more.
After all, there were over 20 promos (see some below) leading up to Season 6, so it’s entirely possible that one or more of the themes will be included this season.
According to Game N Guide, the Roanoke storyline was featured in the teaser “Wind Chimes,” while the hot tub scene was similar to the promo that showed a creature dragging a woman under the water.
Does this mean Season 6 will include more than one theme? Of course, there were some trailers that featured aliens, so it’s entirely possible that some of the promos were made just to throw fans off the trail.
That being said, FX News Call is reporting that fans shouldn’t rule out aliens just yet. Screenshots reveal that aliens might be a part of a larger story this season, though that is yet to be officially confirmed.
In the meantime, there is a very real possibility that Shelby (Sarah Paulson) will sacrifice her child in order to save Matt’s (Cuba Gooding Jr.) life.
As fans will recall, a similar trick was used in American Horror Story: Coven, where a spell called Vitalum Vitalis was used to prevent someone from dying. This opens up the possibility that Shelby did the same thing for Matt, who may have lost his life in the “knockout game.”
Whatever ends up happening this season, it is clear that Ryan Murphy and company have more than one surprise waiting as the season continues to develop.
If Gooding’s comments are true, then fans might be in for the biggest surprise yet.
Meanwhile, fans are still in the dark as to what characters Lady Gaga and Jacob Artist will play this season. Gaga played a lead role in Season 5 of AHS, though she is only appearing in a few episodes this time around. Hopefully, both actors will make cameos sooner rather than later.
American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare airs Wednesday nights on FX.
