American Horror StorySeason 6 may not have an announced theme yet, but at least we now know when we can watch it.

FX announced Tuesday that the next installation of Ryan Murphy's horror event series will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10/9c. That's a month earlier than the show's usual October kick-off, which is good news for anxious AHS fans. The new season will also include familiar faces Angela Bassett, Lady Gaga and Cheyenne Jackson, with more AHS alums expected to return as well.
