Ryan Murphy hints that Season 7 of “American Horror Story” will be ~strange~ and when will the madness end

Good news for those of us completely consumed with American Horror Story, the show is set to return for Season 7 sometime in 2017. At least the number 7 isn’t as spooky and scary as a bunch of number 6’s (or is it?).

Obviously, we know little to knowing about Season 7, aside from the fact that it is HAPPENING. We could try and guess who might be returning for the seventh outing of murder and mayhem, along with the theme/setting, but considering the trauma caused by the lead-up to Season 6…let’s not. But, even though there’s isn’t much to speculate about right now, we do have one little something:

Ryan Murphy is already hinting that Season 7 will be "strange."

Oh no. Not this again.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Murphy explains that this season just came to him suddenly, and he knew he had to do it.

“[The theme] comes to me as it always comes to me,” he explains. “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.”

And if you think Season 6 is weird, it already sounds like Season 7 will be even weirder, and how is that even possible?

"[Season 7] also [has]  a narratively strange idea, he continues. “I’ve already started to call people saying, ‘Put this on your calendar.’ It’s a good one.

Oh, lovely. It going to be a good one, and our brains already hurt. Knowing that Season 6 is like, faux-documentary-ish, what could be possibly stranger than that?

If there's anyone who's going to figure it out, it's Ryan Murphy.
