Since American Horror Story: Hotel ended and Roanoke emerged shrouded in mystery, fans have produced a number of theories regarding future themes. One popular theme theory, for example, has been "Slender Man," and while some reports even alleged that a script was under consideration, an entire season based exclusively on one fictional character seems limiting. Another was "Summer Camp," which is frankly much too reminiscent of a cheesy made-for-TV movie to have AHS creator Ryan Murphy's name on it.
The following are the most popular themes swirling around the web. Fans will recognize number two as AHS: Cult, which went on to become the anthology's seventh season.
