Unlike previous editions of this anthology series, Season 6 was shrouded in secrecy which no doubt helped increase curiosity and buzz. Emmy winner Sarah Paulson and nominee Cuba Gooding Jr. (“The People v. O.J. Simpson”) play the lead roles of Shelby and Matt Miller, who move from Los Angeles to a quiet town in the woods and are soon traumatized by the local townsfolk.

Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, the 10 series regulars for “Roanoke” are: Kathy Bates, Paulson, Gooding, Lily Rabe, Andre Holland, Denis O’Hare, Wes Bentley, Evan Peters, Cheyenne Jackson and Angela Bassett. While most of these performers popped up in the first two episodes, Peters and Jackson have yet to appear.
