American Horror Story: Roanoke closed out its incredible sixth season Wednesday night and will definitely go down as one of the best installments in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s anthology series. Read Marc Snetiker’s full recap here.

But enough about Roanoke — let’s talk about season 7!

So shortly after AHS wrapped up its final hour, FX’s social media account for the series sent out this odd, nautical-esque message.

Why water? Is that a clue to next season? Could it be some sort of boat-related AHS? Is it based on the Carnival “Poop Cruise” of 2013?

The astute folks at PopSugar also pointed out that in the final moments of AHS: Roanoke a miniature ship crashes to the floor and the camera lingers on it. Well, that can’t all be a coincidence…can it? I mean, we are talking about a series that created several fake teasers to throw fans off the plot of this last season before its September premiere.

When EW asked Murphy about next season in September, he told us, “It’s also a narratively strange idea. I’ve already started to call people saying, ‘Put this on your calendar.’ It’s a good one.”
