FX’s “American Horror Story” is yet to return but the rumor mills are busy giving hints as to what fans might expect in the sixth season. The latest speculation describes the next season as being claustrophobic. Furthermore, it is rumored that the show might air two seasons this year.
In an interview with The Wrap, Finn Wittrock, who starred in previous seasons “Freak Show” and “Hotel,” gave his own prediction on what the next season will be like and described it as “a little tighter” with “a smaller cast.”
“I have heard it is going to be a little tighter — there were so many story lines in the last one and it was so big and epic, I have a feeling it might be a little more claustrophobic. A smaller cast,” he said in the interview.
His statement also fueled speculations that the actor was speaking metaphorically about the storyline. They say that instead of the usual complicated and scattered storylines which often leave viewers confused, the storylines will be lesser and more focused. This will allow fans to pay more attention and enjoy the stories, instead of spending more time guessing what will happen and how each character is intertwined together.
Aside from this, Wittrock also revealed that he is not officially part of season 6 yet, although he has expressed interest in doing some episodes for the show again. He added that everything is not finalized yet, reasoning that it could be the strategy of the show to keep everyone in the dark so that no spoilers will be revealed.
He cited that the same situation happened last year when he was cast in one of the episodes, saying he didn’t know about it only until a few months before shooting began.
Aside from this, there is another speculation that the creators of the show are thinking of delivering two seasons this year instead of one. However, they remain to be rumors as there are no official announcements yet.
