Step aside, circus, coven and hotel, a new American Horror Story season is in town. 

Ryan Murphy is known for hinting at his American Horror Story themes, through symbolism in social media posts, commercials, and other various advertisements. But this time, he's not making us wait any longer. 

During his appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, he told Andy Cohen that the next season is “going to be about the election that we just went through.”

Murphy say whaaaaaat?

Although Murphy doesn't have a title set in stone, he did imply there would be a character inspired by Donald Trump.

When Murphy dropped the news to Cohen, he asked if there would be a Trump, and Ryan replied with a smirk on his face, “Maybe.”

The suspense is too much to handle. We're getting excited just thinking about the casting...Sarah Paulson as Hillary, John Travolta as Trump, Cuba Gooding Jr as Obama? Or will he bring in a new cast?

Can we fast-forward to June, please?
