Murphy, whose limited series "The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story" was a big hit, also says he's working on a series about the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Each season of FX’s “American Horror Story” has been built around a theme.

The show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, says the upcoming 7th season will draw inspiration from an altogether different kind of savagery: the 2016 election.

“I don’t have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June will be about the election we just went through,” Murphy told “Watch What Happens Live!” host Andy Cohen on Wednesday’s show.

“Wow!” said Cohen. When he asked Murphy if a Trump character would be part of the program, Murphy answered “maybe.”

Previous seasons of “American Horror Story” have been set in a murderous house, an insane asylum, and a coven.

In the same interview, Cohen also said he’s optioned a book about the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky scandal for his “American Crime Story.” He wants Sarah Paulson to play Linda Tripp and an unknown as Lewinsky. He’s undecided on who should play Hillary.

His new FX series “Feud” about Joan Crawford and Bette Davis premieres on March 5.
