If you thought politics would haunt the newest season of American Horror Story, think again. It looks as though the clowns are taking over.
Early on the trailer, it's revealed that Sarah Paulson's character Aly is terrified of clowns, and that her fear has gotten worse since the election. At one point, a comic Twisty on the cover is shown, tying back to the classic Freakshow character.
Later on in the trailer, the eerie character played by Billie Lourd gives a doll of Twisty to one of Aly's children. She tells the child not to tell her mom about it.
Whether or not Twisty actually appears in the show remains to be seen, but you can rest assured that clowns will definitely have a profound impact on the story.
In addition to the characters played by Lourd and Paulson, the trailer also highlights the perennial American Horror Story talents of Evan Peters.
