As usual, FX is keeping pretty much everything under wraps when it comes to American Horror Story — but now we at least know what the new season will be subtitled: “Cult.”

The subtitle was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con, along with a premiere date of Tuesday, September 5. As for what the title means? That’s anyone’s guess, because series creator Ryan Murphy is notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to storylines. We know it’s loosely inspired by the recent presidential election, though that doesn’t mean it’ll directly be about politics, per se.

Looking to the cast, frequent stars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will be back, along with newcomers Billy Eichner, Lena Dunham and Billie Lourd. This being American Horror Story, there will probably be a few other familiar faces popping up by the end of it, though.

FX unveiled the title in about the freakiest way possible, with a dancing series of clowns revealing the title (and providing a bit of handy nightmare fuel in the process):
