Season 6 of FX's "American Horror Story" premiered on Wednesday and it gave viewers a hint of what we can expect as the season progresses. The brains behind the show had kept the theme a secret, and the synopsis for the first episode was also not released before the premiere. But on Wednesday, it was revealed that Season 6 of the show will be called "American Horror Story: Roanoke."

 In an earlier interview, Lady Gaga, who joined "American Horror Story" in Season 5, revealed a bit about her character, saying it's someone who is grounded. "The character I'm playing this year on 'Horror Story,' she's quite grounded," the singer who recently released her new single "Perfect Illusion" told BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

"That might sound ridiculous once you see who she is, but she's very in the earth," she added. Besides Gaga, the sixth instalment will have Kathy Bates, Denis O'Hare, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Finn Wittrock, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley and Matt Bomer.

Earlier this week, it was announced that "Glee" alum Jacob Artist has also joined Season 6. The 23-year-old actor shared the news on Instagram with a photo of the script captioned "Day 1." However, he made sure to cover up this season's subtitle so as not to reveal the theme for Season 6.

FX and Ryan Murphy's decision to keep the theme a secret has resulted in ardent fans of the show coming up with various theories on what Season 6 could be about, and one of the popular theories is that it would be based in a boarding school. This gained momentum after the creator of the series revealed that children would play a major role in Season 6. Interestingly, the Thatcher School was mentioned in "American Horror Story: Hotel" finale. It is also possible that the new season could revolve around St. Ursula's Home for Lost Children, which is an orphanage.

"American Horror Story" Season 6 airs Wednesday at 10 pm on FX. The episode can be watched online on fxnetworks.com. Season 6 of the show will mark its debut in India on Star World Premiere HD on Sept. 18 at 10 p.m. IST.
