The Next American Horror Story

Every “American Horror Story” fan has their favorite season.

From season one “Murder House” to the most recent “Hotel,” the producers of the popular television anthology know how to keep you on the edge of your seat.

“American Horror Story” returns to FX on Wednesday, Sept. 14, but no theme has officially been announced yet.

Several promotional ads have been broadcast showing conflicting images, ranging from creepy children to horrific insects.

Several sources have speculated about the theme with few bits of information being released to the public.

Currently, two options are prevalent on fan sites and discussion boards: many believe the sixth season will either be “Lost Colony” or “The Mist.”

Proponents of the “Lost Colony” theory have their backing in TMZ leaked photos, depicting settler’s huts and the word “Croatoan” carved into a tree. These pictures are definitely from a set depicting the lost Roanoke colony in North Carolina.

In the late 16th century, Queen Elizabeth wanted to establish a permanent English settlement overseas. Several colonists were sent to an island off the coast of North Carolina and it was named Roanoke.

Three years after Roanoke received its last shipment from England, 118 colonists disappeared without explanation.

The only clue to their whereabouts was the word “Croatoan” carved into a nearby tree. Historians have been speculating about this mystery for centuries. With no solid knowledge of where the settlement disappeared, the producers could have some fun giving it a horrific spin.

However, some say “The Mist” could also be the theme, due to TV Guide and Rotten Tomatoes clues.

When TV Guide released their upcoming program schedule, on the Sept. 14 release date of “AHS,” TV Guide displays the words “American Horror Story: The Mist.”

Rotten Tomatoes also recently added the sixth season to their website, calling it “The Mist.” The website now only displays “Season 6” in reference to “AHS.”

While it’s possible “The Mist” is only the name of the first episode, many fans believe “AHS” executives let their long-held secret slip.

If “The Mist” turns out to be the theme, it’s possible it will center around Stephen King’s book under the same title. With monsters appearing out of thick, never-ending mist, attacks coming from every direction and government conspiracy. “The Mist” is right up the “AHS” alley of spooky.

While both ideas would be great to watch, they’re most likely not true.

Another possibility is the creators are intentionally causing information “leaks” to throw off fans and surprise everyone Wednesday.

Either way, the new season of “American Horror Story” is sure to garner a large audience on its opening night.

The series has always pushed the envelope of television, providing gruesome acts, disgusting images and witty dialogue to keep you engaged. Its popularity among audiences will surely extend into the sixth season.
