The contrast of their innocence in such a dark world was a great mix in Hotel.

Trailer teasers

The various trailers released have shown many possibilities and the fans are weighing in on social media. Some believe we will be following a Stephen King based story called The Mist. That was a subtitle that was released in the TV Guide.

Other fans are speculating about a Charles Manson type show. There are some that are posting that it could be a Children of the Corn theme.

Aliens and serial killers have been speculated as well as a show based on the lost colony. There is lots of talk on social media about how The Mist plays into the possible themes. There have been so many various themes guessed at based on the trailers. The one thing we know for sure from all the trailers, teasers, and speculation is that Ryan Murphy is great at keeping secrets.

No matter what the season is, we will finally get our fix each week of horror, suspense, and gore.

We know that it will be worth the wait because Ryan Murphy rarely disappoints his viewers. Tune in tonight on FX to finally have the long anticipated theme revealed!
