American Horror Story: Season 6

Very little is know about and so far the only teaser is the one below, according to Variety. In many ways, this will help quell the high expectations that have plagued the last few seasons. I had imagined Coven would be a gritty take on modern witches with haggardly beasts, witchcraft, and satanic overtones. Instead we got a boarding house/girl drama with little actual darkness. I had imagined Freakshow in my head as a dark carnival that swoops into town salvaging communities and recruiting souls (ahem, Something Wicked This Way Comes). Instead we got a depressing period drama about a German diva keeping a circus/stardom dream alive. Hotel was pretty much what I expected but with vampires.

Filming is underway on Season 6 with Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Cheyenne Jackson, Finn Wittrock, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Angela Bassett, and Denis O'Hare all returning, and will premiere in October.

UPDATE: FX has set the premiere date: Wednesday, September 14 at 10/9c.
