Ryan Murphy just posted a cryptic *clue* for “American Horror Story” Season 7

It’s the most wonderful time of year ago: That beautiful stretch of time before American Horror Story hits our television sets, and we get to spend so much of our precious time freaking out about every last thing we see about it on the internet!!

Today’s freak out? Ryan Murphy now has an Instagram, and he’s clearly having some fun with it. He’s been uploading a few pictures here and there for the last few weeks — most of them about American Crime Story: Versace, which is currently shooting down in Miami — but he just uploaded a picture for AHS.

It is a very simple picture, and because of this, we have roughly a thousand questions. Most pressing: IS THIS EVAN PETERS?

The image has no shock and awe factor like we’re used to with AHS. Rather, we’ve just got someone with a brand new blue ‘do. Murphy’s caption reads:

AHS Season 7: Red, white and blue clue.


The fact that Murphy directly calls it a clue means it has to be a clue, right? Lol, not like he’d lie to us about AHS details (LOLOLOLOLZ.) The only thing we know *for certain* about this season is that it’s going to revolve around the 2016 Presidential Election. According to Murphy, the first episode actually picks up the night of the election, and the rest of the season will be about…actually, wait, we don’t know what the rest of the season will be about.

But, this one teaser image clearly relates back to that ~election~ theme. The American colors are red, white, and blue (in case you’ve forgotten). BUT, what does someone having blue hair have to do with AHS? And still, once again, is this by any chance Evan Peters? Asking for a friend.

American Horror Story is set to start filming this summer, with a premiere date sometime early fall. We are absolutely ready for it.
