[WATCH] Ryan Murphy (finally!) teases ‘American Horror Story’ season 6: ‘It will be familiar and shocking’

“It will be familiar and shocking,” Ryan Murphy teases to Gold Derby about the ultra-mysterious sixth season of “American Horror Story” while on the red carpet at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards (watch above). “We’re playing with a different form, so it’s not like any ‘Horror’ season you’ve ever seen. It’s very, very radically different — the narrative structure of what we’re doing.”

“We were talking a lot about it before this season and usually I make a big thing about announcing the title, and we just decided to sort of do a Beyonce this year and just drop it and let people experience it and have fun,” Murphy continues. “It’s a horror show and it has suspense and we thought, well, this would fit in this narrative.”

Murphy was on the red carpet along with producer Nina Jacobson to represent both “American Horror Story: Hotel” and “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” which together earned a whopping 30 Emmy noms this year. The newest cycle of “AHS” premieres Wednesday, September 14 on FX.
