“American Horror Story: Roanoke” Cast Close Paleyfest & Reveal Which Characters They Want to Revisit


Following tradition, the cast and producers of FX’s hit “American Horror Story: Roanoke” gathered at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to close out Paleyfest 2017.

Stars Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson & Adina Porter, were joined by executive producers Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear for a night of fun. The audience first screened episode 10 of the series which coincidentally opened with a scene at Paleyfest.

Throughout the panel, Kathy and Sarah had a blast ribbing on each other and everyone kept pretty tight lipped on the upcoming 7th season. The cast did share a few fun nuggets of information though. When asked what character she’d like to revisit since she got to play Lana Winters again this season, Sarah Paulson revealed “Cordelia Foxx, because I would like to see her getting her powers as the Supreme. Maybe we’ll get to see that.” Denis O’Hare chose Larry Harvey and shared “I’d like to see him get out of jail, he’s probably been organizing musicals there.”

“American Horror Story” is known for being pretty secretive when it comes to what fans can expect and it turns out this latest season was under lock and key the most out of any season so far. During the panel, Paulson said, “There was nothing we could say. This was a whole new world order of knowing really nothing.” She added, “when we were reading, we didn’t know what the f— was happening.”

Since Ryan Murphy was absent from the panel, no real details for the next season were given and we are hoping some more news comes out soon. The last bit of news was that the season will have something to do with the recent election.
