Image Source: Getty / Michael Buckner True Blood has been off the air for almost three years now, but the bond between the tight-knit cast is clearly still strong. After news broke on Saturday that Nelsan Ellis, who played Lafayette on the series, passed away after complications with heart failure, many of the show's actors posted heartfelt messages about their former costar on social media. Mehcad Brooks (who played Tara's boyfriend, Eggs) wrote a lengthy, emotional homage to his late friend on Instagram. "Just got word that @nelsanellisofficial made the transition from body to spirit. F*ck this one really got me," he captioned a photo of Ellis. "This was truly the only person from #TrueBlood I consistently stayed in touch with and was a friend through it all. You all know him as an amazing actor, a light on the screen with an unparalleled bravery and talent. But I knew him as a good dude, »

Surprise, surprise: we're nearly six months out from the finale of American Horror Story: Roanoke and we still know precious little about the next installment. Unlike the silent, painful months leading up to last year's premiere, though, we do have a few spare details that hint at what's to come. We also have a very interesting preliminary cast. But we're not ones to twiddle our thumbs and wait. We're digging around to figure out as much as we can about season seven. Naturally, the best place to start is with the actors and creators themselves, so we've compiled every mysterious quote that we've heard so far. Ryan Murphy's basing it around the 2016 election. "I don't have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through. I think that will be interesting for a lot of people. »

We're already well into 2017, and surprise, we know very little about the new season of American Horror Story. Sure, we've learned that it will handle the 2016 election, and we've received a few more spare details, spun up plausible theories, and shared our dream cast. At the Ahs PaleyFest panel in March, we saw an opportunity. Why should we be the ones coming up with all the theories? That's why we asked the cast to venture guesses at what the mysterious seventh season might hold, and they did not disappoint. Cheyenne Jackson "You know what, I've tried to speculate, and I think like, what could [Ryan Murphy] possibly dream up? Nothing I could do, nothing I could think of would be as twisted. I know personally how he dealt with the election, so I wonder how that would manifest. I think he'd be speaking to a lot of people. I don't know." Denis O'Hare "God knows. »

When thinking of the long list of actors who have appeared on multiple seasons of American Horror Story, you may recall names like Denis O'Hare, Jessica Lange, and Frances Conroy. They've been on a handful of seasons - but not every season. That honor goes to three committed individuals: Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Evan Peters. These Ryan Murphy collaborators can't get enough horror, and at least two of them have already joined season seven. While we're waiting for more details about the upcoming season, see if you can recall every character these three actors have played over the years. »
