At least, that’s what we took from the first full trailer for American Horror Story: Cult!
The clip finally dives deep into the latest season of Ryan Murphy‘s anthology series, with a closer look at Sarah Paulson (reprising her role as Paranoid Terrified Woman), Cheyenne Jackson (playing the resident seemingly-put-together-put-probably-crazy Therapist), and Billie Lourd (playing a spooky babysitter we’ll call Lana Del Grey). Twisty the Clown makes a subtle cameo, too!
It all starts in Michigan on 2016’s election night, when Trump’s win triggers a crippling phobia for Ally Mayfair Richards (Paulson) — her fear of clowns.
Things don’t get better when Paulson and her wife (newcomer Alison Pill) hire Winter Anderson (Lourd) to take care of their son — because Winter is secretly working with Kai Anderson (Peters), who is hellbent on using fear to get people to “set the world on fire.”
