"American Horror Story" season 6, chapter 5 has recently revealed that the "Roanoke" season actually tells three different stories, as confirmed by co-creator Brad Falchuk. A promo video of the next episode also went out hinting at a beginning of a new story for the season.
After the shocking revelations went out in "American Horror Story: Roanoke" chapter 5, Falchuk said in an interview that the fifth episode marked the end of nightmares of Shelby Miller (Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson) and Matt (Andre Holland and Cuba Gooding Jr.).
As it seemed a bit confusing, the AHS co-creator shed some light on the mysteries that the story of the whole "Roanoke" season holds, saying, "I really think it's three seasons: it's like [episodes] 1 through 5, 6 through 9, and 10 is its own thing."
In a separate chat with creator Ryan Murphy, he shared, "Starting in episode six the show has a huge turn...and the thing that you think you're watching is not what you're watching." This somehow confirmed Falchuk's statement that season 6 is basically subdivided into three different but interconnecting stories.
The three "sub-seasons," as the creators call it, lead to another story as the other closes. And now that chapter 5 ended Shelby and Matte's role in the season, a promo video went out for chapter 6 which features Cheyenne Jackson, who plays the character of Will Drake, marking the beginning of another set of story. Drake, who was last seen in "Hotel" season 5, was acting like the producer of the documentary film that they were taping.
"American Horror Story: Roanoke" features Shelby, her husband Matt, and Matt's sister Lee (Adina Porter) who go to North Carolina to appear in the documentary film "My Roanoke Nightmare." The three recount a series of supernatural phenomena that started to happen after the couple relocated from Los Angeles, following a miscarriage. The team's stay at the house revealed hidden videotapes that were made by the previous house owner, in which a detailed account of the terrifying events was recorded.
Meanwhile, as the current season is showcasing horror stories, visual effects, and acting at its finest, the show was already signed by FX for a renewal and season 7, set to come out in 2017. The announcement made on Oct. 4 made the fans of the anthology series ecstatic as well as curious if actress Jessica Lange will at least do cameo in the upcoming season 7.
Lange made her last appearance for the show in "American Horror Story" season 4, and before the show rolled its camera for season 5, the actress already announced that she will no longer take a role for another season. The actress made a great job at portraying Elsa Mars, given her age of 67.
Also, following the announcement for season 7 is the question from fans if it will be the series finale. "American Horror Story" season 6 has been well received by viewers in the 18-34 demographic. The show has also been announced as the third most-watched series in the whole history of FX, which proves the show's big influence on viewers.
