It's been months since American Horror Story was renewed for a seventh season, and hints and details have begun to trickle in. Creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy appeared at the Television Critics Association's Winter press tour in January and gave up some small but important details - including the addition of two returning cast members! Then, in February, he shared even more exciting details regarding what's to come, including a crazy solid theme. Here's what we can expect for the next installment of American Horror Story. 1. The First Hints In an October 2016 cover story with Entertainment Weekly, Ryan Murphy slyly dropped some information on season seven. The idea apparently just came to him. "It comes to me as it always comes to me," he said. "I sit up in 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 in bed and said 'That's it!' Whenever it happens it's such a relief because it's so much pressure." So what, exactly, is the idea? Much like season six's "show-within-a-show" model, the next installment is "also a narratively strange idea," according to Murphy. He also said, "I've already started to call people saying, 'Put this on your calendar.' It's a good one." 2. The Theme In January, Murphy told reporters that he wasn't sure he'd keep the theme a secret again. "I think maybe we'll release some of it earlier than we did," he said. "But I just started writing it, I haven't even cast it yet - except for Sarah and Evan. It's a modern-day story. That's all I can say." Then, in February, Murphy couldn't help but say more. On Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live!, he revealed that the seventh season will handle the 2016 election as its main horror story. This obviously led to a few theories on our end. And before you start casting your picks for Trump and Clinton, like we did pump the brakes. At a Publicists Guild Awards luncheon just before the Oscars, Murphy said, "The themes of American Horror Story have always been allegories. You will not see Trump and Clinton as characters on the show." He did, however, make a joke about casting Sarah Paulson (who presented him with an award at the event) as Kellyanne Conway. "Now as I look over at Sarah Paulson, I think of Kellyanne Conway. I don't know! I might be rewriting!" The season will reportedly begin the day after the election. 3. The Cast Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who have been in every season, have already been confirmed. Lily Rabe has also appeared every year, but there's no word on her yet. Three new faces have been added to the cast, however: Billy Eichner, Scream Queens star Billie Lourd, and Arrow's Colton Haynes. RelatedIs Jessica Lange Ever Coming Back to American Horror Story? What We Know 4. The Other Clues Ok, this is probably going to be the murkiest part of season seven, and we likely won't get more new information for a long time. Even the cast could only offer theories at PaleyFest. But, we can be proactive about figuring it out! Any diehard Ahs fan knows Murphy loves to weave tiny clues into the current season, and if you look at Roanoake, there's plenty of good fodder for what might work its way into next season. Roanoke left us with a mysteriously loose end about Lee's first daughter, Emily. We also have a theory that the next season could be about a shipwreck. A post shared by American Horror Story (@ahsfx) on Nov 16, 2016 at 8:29pm Pst Oh, and just because Ahs is supposedly tackling the election, it doesn't mean the aforementioned variables won't come in to play. After all, Murphy is famous for cramming multiple stories into a single season. Asylum may be the most prominent example of this: it handled demonic possession, aliens, serial killers (yes, more than one!), Anne Frank, and even weird, unseen monsters in the woods. And that was just one season. Suffice it to say, an election nightmare and a shipwreck could go hand in hand. 5. The Premiere Date Obviously, we know Ahs won't be back until Fall of 2017. The first five seasons of the show had October premieres; Roanoke was the first season to be moved up to September! So a safe assumption is October. And hey, if it comes early again, all the better for us. »

Ryan Murphy has revealed another addition to the seventh season of his FX series American Horror Story. Taking to Instagram, Murphy has announced that Colton Haynes, who starred in Arrow, has joined the cast of the anthology series and teased his appearance for the show.
Haynes shared the same picture on his Instagram, adding “American Horror Story season 7… Already feels like home. So exited.”
As is typical of Murphy, the plot of the season is shrouded in mystery. Murphy has revealed he’s taking inspiration from the 2016 Presidential election in the U.S., and the season will be set in the aftermath of an election with the premiere taking place on Election Night.
American Horror Story has already been renewed for an 8th and 9th season. Murphy, meanwhile, is also working on the next instalments of American Crime Story, which recently flipped its seasons. The Assassination of Gianni Versace is now the second season while Katrina will be its third. »

After actress Sophie Turner revealed in February that the next X-Men movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix will shoot later this year, it seems we're getting closer and closer to a production start date. While it still hasn't been confirmed when principal photography will get under way, a new photo has surfaced from the set, which seems to tease that filming will start soon. Another photo has also confirmed that Sophie Turner herself has in fact arrived in Montreal, after a photo surfaced on social media with her and a fan.
The Jen Law Films Twitter posted this first image from the set, and while there is no confirmation that this set is in fact the Danger Room, it certainly seems likely. The Twitter account, which follows all of Jennifer Lawrence's films, also reveals that Nicholas Hoult has arrived in Montreal for the shoot, but there is still no official word on when filming may begin. »
For a film that was quietly nudged toward the sidelines as Deadpool 2 and Josh Boone’s New Mutants spinoff coalesced, X-Men: Dark Phoenix has now exploded into life, recruiting a host of familiar mutants and a director in Simon Kinberg, one of the many veterans of Fox’s grand cinematic franchise.
Set in the early 1990s, Dark Phoenix mines inspiration from the eponymous comic book by focusing on the young Jean Grey (Sophie Turner) who, after a brief spell in space, is overpowered by the titular cosmic entity. Since its inception, the Dark Phoenix saga has struck a chord with the X-Men faithful, so it’s small wonder why fans are beginning to look toward the film’s November 2018 release date with hushed excitement.

Even if you consider yourself a loyal disciple of Fox’s lucrative mutant franchise, the X-Men lore can be difficult to parse. In the words of a certain Merc With a Mouth: “McAvoy or Stewart? These timelines are so confusing!”
But now that the dust has all but settled from Bryan Singer’s middling Apocalypse, 20th Century Fox is gearing up for the next mainline entry: X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Pegged to arrive in November of next year, today heralded a series of exciting developments, including Simon Kinberg closing a deal to direct. Dark Phoenix will feature a familiar roster of mutants, too – and possibly an Oscar nominee in the form of Jessica Chastain – with Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), James McAvoy (Professor X), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Alexandra Shipp (Storm), Sophie Turner (Jean Grey), Tye Sheridan (Cyclops), and Kodi Smit-McPhee (Nightcrawler) all back to reprise their respective roles.

Billie Lourd has gone blue!
The 24-year-old actress took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that she's traded in her blonde locks for a brand new icy blue hue.
Evan Peters on ‘Dabka’ by Uinterview Dabka, directed by Bryan Buckley, is based on the true story of Jay Bahadur (Evan Peters), a rookie journalist who goes to Somalia to live among, and write about, the pirates getting international infamy in 2008. The film also stars Al Pacino as Seymour Tolbin, a fictitious Vietnam War corespondent, and Barkhad Abdi (Captain Philips) as […]

Image Source: Everett Collection Evan Peters is well-known for his alluringly creepy characters on American Horror Story, but he recently took on a different genre entirely with his film Dabka. The biographical drama, which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival, tells the true story of Canadian journalist Jay Bahadur, who gained mass attention for his detailed account of piracy in Somalia. Not only does the film paint the Somali pirates and its people in a new light, but it also inspires its audiences to take a leap of faith and go after their dreams. We had a chance to sit down with Peters and his character's real-life counterpart, and they discussed what it was like working with Al Pacino (who plays Jay's mentor), Bahadur's small cameo, and the biggest turning point in each of their careers.

After months of rumors, it was finally confirmed that the next X-Men movie will be called Dark Phoenix, with this new movie rebooting the comic book arc that played out on the big screen in X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand. This movie will be set in the 1990s, and Sophie Turner is said to be returning as Jean Grey, although her return has not been confirmed by the studio quite yet. While we're probably still far away from getting a full cast list, producer Hutch Parker recently hinted that two more iconic characters may be returning.
While promoting his upcoming sci-fi sequel Alien: Covenant on an MTV podcast, Michael Fassbender hinted that it is "likely" he will will be back as Magneto, although it seems nothing is set in stone yet, and he wouldn't elaborate more if he will be back for Dark Phoenix or The New Mutants. »
Murphy on Monday announced — via Instagram, naturally — that Leslie Grossman (What I Like About You) is joining the cast of the FX drama’s election-themed installment, presumably in a comedic role, given that he refers to her as “one of the funniest and most talented ladies” he knows. (Editor’s note: I co-sign that.)
Longtime fans of Murphy’s shows will recall Grossman’s work as lovable dumb-dumb Mary »
Posted on Murphy's Instagram page with the caption "American Horror Story Season 7 tease," the artwork depicts an elephant with a horrifying smile reminiscent of Twisty the Clown (from American Horror Story: Freak Show).

American Horror Story Season 7 is expected to premiere this fall on FX, with the network also renewing the series for seasons 8 and 9, respectively. The cast for season 7 includes Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billy Eichner, and Billie Lourd. Check out the teaser artwork below, and stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates.

A version of this story originally appeared on EW.com.
Murphy has teased that this season of the series will take place after the 2016 election and the Republican party’s symbol is the elephant, so we’re guessing this is a not-so-subtle jab at the political party.
