Season 6 of American Horror Story came and went, and while the idea of Roanoke was good, many fans felt that the latest season left them feeling less than satisfied. That might be fixed though if Ryan Murphy’s hints about Season 7 are true. It’s possible that the next installment of AHS might come sooner than expected in order to placate some of the FX hit’s toughest critics.
Just after the finale for Season 6 of American Horror Story ended, a teaser for Season 7 was dropped on Twitter. The teaser was titled “Sweet dreams” and featured a video of water that looked very much like it is out in the ocean. The caption reads, “The monsters are all gone. #AHSRoanoke.”

This has fans thinking that Ryan Murphy is already teasing Season 7 of American Horror Story and that the upcoming season may just be set on the water. Even though the tweet clearly tags AHS Roanoke, some believe that because there was no water involved in Season 6 that this is clearly a clue about the upcoming Season 7.
Pop Sugar recalled that the water is possibly tied to another clue from the finale of Season 6. The entire season was made up of a “show within a show” and the last episode was no different. In a segment of the fictional “Spirit Chasers,” while exploring the Roanoke house after all the carnage has taken place, the group hears a large crash. It turns out that a huge wooden ship had fallen over with no indication of what may have caused the crash. No one really paid attention to the shipwreck in Season 6 because it seemed so obscure, but the water in the tweet following the finale has fans wondering of those two images together are a huge clue about where the series is headed for Season 7.
To make the American Horror Story theory even juicier, there is a reason to believe that Ryan Murphy won’t be making fans wait for the upcoming Season 7. Instead, there is a rumor going around that AHS may either start filming soon or already be filming the upcoming episodes with the intent to premiere Season 7 in the spring instead of waiting for the fall.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Ryan Murphy already knows what the plan is for Season 7 of American Horror Story are. Even though Murphy already knows what the next season will be about, he’s certainly not telling anyone. Season 6 was the most well-kept AHS secret so far in the anthology series’ history. Viewers had no idea what was going to happen going into it, and there are probably a few who still don’t know what all happened during the season that was so full of twists and turns that we ended up watching a completely different show than we started out thinking it was.
“It comes to me as it always comes to me,” says Murphy. “I sit up and bed and I say ‘That’s it!’ I have been mulling a couple of ideas and I wasn’t loving it. Then I was thinking of this other thing and I literally sat up and bed and said ‘That’s it!’ Whenever it happens it’s such a relief because it’s so much pressure.”

While many thought that Season 7 would be Ryan Murphy’s secret season, it turns out that it’s not. Instead, Murphy says he’s still working on that season which only he and a writer know anything about. As for Season 7, Ryan has already said he’s excited to “shake things up” for the upcoming season too. Unlike previous seasons, Murphy isn’t even waiting for PaleyFest to make reveals and says he’s already calling people up and telling them to get ready for the next offering of American Horror Story because he’s pretty excited about it.
