Spoilers for American Horror Story: Season 6

Last week, the creators of American Horror Story flipped the script in a way rarely, if ever, done before in television history. For five episodes of Season 6 we watched “My Roanoke Nightmare” showing the re-enactments of the Miller family and their harrowing ordeal in a haunted North Carolina colonial mansion. Actors Audrey (Sarah Paulson) and Dominic (Cuba Gooding Jr.) played the roles of Shelby (Lily Rabe) and Matt (Andre Holland), and they were stalked by vengeance-seeking ghosts led The Butcher, portrayed by Agnes Mary Winstead (Kathy Bates). That story we discovered was actually the highest TV show of the year and now producers want a sequel. So director Sidney James (Cheyenne Jackson) has the perfect pitch, “Return To Roanoke: 3 Days In Hell,” where the real characters and the actors who played them come together “Big Brother” style in a haunted reality show. Of course staging the show at a real haunted house does not end well. We are informed by graphic that only one person survives the ordeal and everything recorded is found footage. Already one of the new cast was killed as Rory (Evan Peters) was murdered by the nurse ghosts, fulfilling the “R” for their MURDER wall”¦
