American Horror Story: Cult Teases Hillary, Trump and Dead Dogs!

by at .  Updated at .

Over the years, American Horror Story has centered seasons on witches, circus freaks and killers in black leather sex suits.

But the upcoming season may be the strangest and scariest to date... because it will focus on the 2016 Presidential Election!

Sort of!

Creator Ryan Murphy has teased that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will both play some kind of role on American Horror Story: Cult.

Sure enough, the just-revealed opening credits sequence featuring characters donning the masks of both these polarizing figures.

There are also bees depicted below, along with many creepy masks and dead dogs, because nothing freaks people out like dead dogs.

What else do know about new fall episodes?

Ryan has previously teased a "love story for the ages" between Sarah Paulson's character and that of Evan Peters... although Paulson will be married to a woman played by Allison Pill.

Yeah. Your guess is as good as ours.

"I think it's going to reveal itself in surprising ways," Paulson said at the 2017 TCA summer press tour of her romance.

Billie Lourd, Cheyenne Jackson, Colton Haynes, Billy Eichner, Adina Porter and Leslie Grossman will also star in the new season.

On top of that star-studded list of performers, Lena Dunham, Frances Conroy and Mare Winningham will make appearances.

"We've got bloody tension, a well-cooked meal, an exciting trip to a grocery store,” previewed executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall this summer of what’s on tap, adding:

“I just think it is true to our brand."

Which is?


"Which is you're going to be in a whole new world all over again and fall in love with these really special characters."

The kind of experience, basically, where you "hate yourself for watching it right before you go to bed and love."

The 11-episode season will be set in Michigan and take place the night of the 2016 presidential election.

American Horror Story: Cult premieres Tuesday, September 5 at 10/9c on FX.
