American Horror Story's sixth entry subtitled "Roanoke" premiered on FX on September 14, 2016.

The main cast includes Sarah Paulson and Lily Rabe as Shelby Miller, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and André Holland as Matt Miller, Adina Porter and Angela Bassett as Lee Miller, and Kathy Bates as the hostile tribe leader. Also, this season links all the seasons of the show together, therefore officially declaring a shared in-show universe. It is also the first season to completely switch around the format of the show, which is a history channel-esque TV mockumentary combined with found footage.


Plot

After a disturbing incident, a young couple move into a seemingly perfect home built in the 18th century in the woods of North Carolina. However, the building turns out to be in close proximity to the site of the legendary Lost Colony's disappearance, and as horrific supernatural events occur at the house, the couple start to sense something dark underneath the facade.
