"American Horror Story" is taking on a new challenge: politics. The show's producer, Ryan Murphy, gave a glimpse into its next season on Wednesday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen.

Asked about the seventh season of the hit FX series, Murphy told Cohen, "I don't have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we just went through. I think that will be interesting for a lot of people."

As to whether that means someone will be cast to play President Trump, Murphy simply said, "Maybe."

FX has renewed the show, which focuses on a different story line each season, through a ninth season, according to Variety.
