Other than the return of certain announced cast members and the show’s fall premiere date, little has been revealed about Season 6 of FX’s American Horror Story. Then, today, a trio of teasers went out over Snapchat. Luckily, some mega-fans were able to capture and record them in order to share their content with the rest of the social media-challenged world in the hopes of gleaning some details about the upcoming season.
But in keeping with the usual veil of secrecy leading up to a new season of the Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk-created series, these mysterious videos are fantastic teases with only snippets of plot clues available. They offered up just enough to get the fanbase and their theories rolling again before the fall premiere.
Lady Gaga, Angela Bassett, Cheyenne Jackson, Finn Wittrock, Wes Bentley, Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, and Matt Bomer will be returning alongside Sarah Paulson, who’s yet to be officially confirmed. American Horror Story returns for its sixth season on FX on Wednesday, September 14th.

As EW recaps, the teasers show off an isolated farmhouse with a wicked chimney problem, the world’s most dangerous baby mobile (with perhaps the most demonic of babies sleeping beneath it), and a series of steps behind which a number of prisoners/monsters/something else entirely try to offer a helping hand…
So what’s going on here? Well, the prevailing internet wisdom points to Michael, the “Rosemary’s Baby”-type son of Vivian (Connie Britton) who was more or less adopted by Constance (Jessica Lange) back in Season 1. This would certainly be a nice way to connect the shared universe, especially with a callback to the show’s first season as a “thank you” to longtime fans and a welcome invitation to newcomers. Do you have a better idea? Let us know in the comments below!
