After weeks of teasing American Horror Story fans with possible monikers for the franchise's upcoming seventh season, co-creator Ryan Murphy has left us with even more questions after its big reveal.

On Thursday night, at San Diego's Comic-Con International, the producer announced that Cult is the title of the series' newest installment, and that the story is set to take place after the results of the 2016 election. He also took to Twitter to simply say: "AHS: CULT."

Murphy previously had us guessing about the new season with multiple teasers on his Instagram account, depicting the nightmare-inducing characters we can expect to see this fall.

One particular post in May seems to suggest that Twisty the Clown from Freak Show will make an appearance, as well as a terrifying elephant and horned man. But Murphy's latest tease, a mysterious photo of a man covered in bees, had fans completely bewildered.
