In the latest season, we already saw a connection between "Freak Show" and "Asylum" where it was explained how the Motts family began. Ryan Murphy wants "American Horror Story: Roanoke" to be like "The Twilight Zone" where it gets weirder and weirder by the minute.
Sarah Paulson is currently playing the British actress Audrey in "American Horror Story: Roanoke" that is currently in danger of getting eaten by the hillbilly cannibals. However, Paulson also played Lana Winters during the season 2 of "American Horror Story."
Lana Winters was an undercover journalist reporter on the hostile conditions of the Asylum in 1964. According to Collider, she pretended to be a patient at the Briarcliff Manor where she ended up being one of the survivors and encountered his fully grown man at the last minute. What could be the connection of the old aged Lana Winters to the current "American Horror Story: Roanoke" season?
Meanwhile, aside from another twist in "American Horror Story: Roanoke," Showrunner Ryan Murphy has also announced at the EW PopFest on what's in store for Season 7 of "American Horror Story." After "American Horror Story: Roanoke," the next season will be a crossover between Murder House and Coven where the characters from the specific season will appear. Ryan Murphy revealed to the crowd in Los Angeles that the characters from Murder House and the characters from Coven will come together.
However, there might be some conflicts with some characters from Murder House. Connie Britton is committed for another season of Nashville and as well as Dylan Dermott. "American Horror Story: Roanoke" showrunner, Ryan Murphy, said that he started going to actors from both of the seasons quietly.
