We already know this season will take place in the wake of the 2016 presidential election, detailing how the fallout from that night affects this season's characters, which include Sarah Paulson's Ally and Evan Peters' Kai. But also, it'll be about clowns and bees.
Based on the many, many teasers for the new season, bees and clowns will feature prominently in Cult. Could bees represent the hive mind of the titular organization? Do the clowns represent our current political circus? Or is Murphy just using bees and clowns because they're too extremely common phobias and he knows exactly how to scare the sh-- out of us?
We won't know for sure until American Horror Story: Cult premieres in September, but we can start piecing together our theories based on what the teasers reveal. Check them all out below!
We're just getting started. A clown recruitment video that ominously warns that joining is only the beginning.
You're within reach. A woman runs through a honeycomb hallway as disembodied arms grasp at and eventually capture her.
We're just beneath the surface. A clown's face surfaces from beneath dark water and opens its eyes and mouths, revealing more of the bubbly liquid inside.
You've been waiting for us. A clown holding a crowbar stares down the camera in this recruitment video for AHSCult.com.
Be part of us. A group of clowns circle around a woman curled up on a symbol, with a hexagon drawn on her back.
American Horror Story: Cult premieres Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 10/9c on FX.
