While FX has kept the theme of “American Horror Story’s” upcoming sixth season a closely-guarded secret, TheWrap takes a look at what we do know about the newest installment of the Ryan Murphy anthology series.

The Confirmed Cast

Returning cast members include Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, Denis O’Hare and Cheyenne Jackson.

Evan Peters Dyed His Hair for the Season

During an interview with TheWrap, Peters dodged all sorts of questions about the upcoming season, but he did reveal that he had dyed his hair red for the mysterious installment.

FX Has Released MANY Teasers

There have been over 20 teasers for the upcoming season, ranging from “Wind Chimes” to “Blind Date.” They all seem to have nothing in common, except for bugs and references to a farm.

But Many of Them Don’t Have Anything to Do With the Actual Plot

FX president John Landgraf has said that many of the show’s teasers are red herrings and have nothing to do with the actual plot.

Landgraf said earlier this month that Murphy and FX “went out and made many more trailers than you’ve actually seen for hypothetical seasons of ‘American Horror Story,’ meaning different genres and different places. And one of them is accurate, and the others are just misdirects.”

This Season Might Connect All Previous Seasons

One trailer has been released that reveals a connection between all previous seasons of the show. In it, we see characters and imagery from the “Murder House,” “Asylum,” “Coven,” “Freak Show” and “Hotel” seasons, followed by flashes of all the trailers thus far for the series’ sixth camapaign.

The Season Will be Set in Two Time Periods

During the TCA Press Tour, Landgraf said that the season would be taking place in two different time periods, with “echoes of the past” mixed in.

TMZ Released Alleged Set Photos

In August, TMZ published photos of what the site said was the set of the sixth season. Etched into a tree was the word, “Croatoan,” hinting that the season would be about the lost colony.

But who knows — it could all be a setup.
