‘American Horror Story’ Creator Ryan Murphy Teases Major Changes In Season 6, ‘Roanoke’ Will Make A ‘Huge Turn’

Just when we thought we knew all the secrets about American Horror Story‘s new season, Ryan Murphy still has a few surprises up his sleeve.

While fans were pleasantly surprised to learn that Season 6 would focus on Roanoke, the show might go an entirely different direction after Episode 6. What will change as American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare continues to unfold?

Movie Fone is reporting that AHS: Roanoke will take a major turn after Chapter 6 and will leave fans second guessing everything.

“Starting in Episode 6 the show has a huge turn,” Murphy revealed.

Brad Falchuk echoed his co-creator’s comments and added that “no matter what you think it is, it’s not that. Episode 6 comes and you’re like, ‘Wait! What happened?'”

Falchuk added that AHS: Roanoke can be split into three different segments: Episodes 1-5, 6-9, and then the finale.


Given how Murphy and his team have kept everything shrouded in mystery so far, there’s no telling if these spoilers will come true or if they are trying to throw everyone off the trail.

To add more confusion to the matter, Cuba Gooding, Jr., who made his debut on the show this season, teased fans with a major twist.

“When you see his season, you’ll realize how to interpret that Twilight Zone idea to an entire other level. When you’re head goes ‘boom’ and you’ve got brains all over the wall, you’re going to be like, ‘Motherf***ing Cuba Gooding Jr.’ I wish I could tell you when it happens, but I can’t.”


Although theories abound about this season’s major twist, Tech Times is reporting that Jessica Lange might make her return this year.

Murphy has hinted in the past that all of American Horror Story‘s seasons are connected in some fashion, and it’s possible that Roanoke has strong ties to Freak Show.

Apparently, the two seasons are linked through the Mott family.

If this is true, then fans might discover a little bit more about Dandy Mott (Finn Wittrock) and why he turned out the way he did.

While the connection between Mott and the Miller couple remains elusive, Murphy also teased that some old actors will make a return this season.

“And there’s a lot of great, familiar people that have come through the seasons—you know, the first five that fans have missed,” Murphy shared. “This year I think where you see the greatest hits in terms of actors of American Horror Story.”


Lange has yet to confirm or deny her involvement in the new season.

Meanwhile, Movie Pilot is reporting that Frances Conroy might also make an appearance on American Horror Story: Roanoke.

In fact, one Twitter fan claims that Conroy told her that she will appear in Episode 6. Could she be a part of Murphy’s big plot twist?

“It might be! I met her tonight and she said she’ll be in episode 6,” the fan wrote.

After being pressed for details, the fan added that Conroy “filmed something fun & will show up in episode 6. I was telling her AHS fans were super disappointed she’s not in the new season. She said wait for it…”

Conroy has been a part of the show since the first season, though she stepped away from the series in Season 5.


The actress played Mott’s mother in Freak Show, which adds another layer to the connections between the two seasons.

Fans can watch the mysteries unfold when new episodes of American Horror Story: Roanoke air Wednesday nights on FX.
