Tomorrow, on Tuesday 5th September, the first episode of the seventh season for American Horror Story will begin. The new season named Cult takes place in Michigan on the night of Donald Trumpís victory in the U.S. general election and the days that follow. The story is a heavily satirical response to Trumpís policies and weíre looking forward to seeing what will happen to the characters revealed in the trailer.

The group appears to centre around Evan Petersí deranged pro-Trump character.
