Funko Friday: AHS Special

American Horror Story Season 6 started this week, and just like me you’re all wondering what in the name of Holy Hell is going to be the main theme of the new series (since I live in the UK, I have not seen it yet).

American Horror Story is an American Horror Television show devised by Glee and Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy. Described as an anthology series, AHS seasons are conceived as their very own miniseries, which will then follow a series of characters, and once the series ends, you may (or may not) see them again, especially since some story-lines are set in the past while other are set in the present. Each miniseries has it’s own ‘beginning, middle, and end’ with some plot elements are based on true events, something that season 5 relied heavily on (not that it’s a bad thing).

Of course with every series you should expect a Funko Pop or two and Funko have always created Funko’s of the most popular characters from each series! Here is a description of series 1-4 and what Funko to expect from them.
