Lock the doors, bolt the windows and try your very best not to do a scared wee all over the bed covers, because American Horror Story is FINALLY back on our TV screens, and the long-awaited theme for Season 6 has finally been revealed.

Having kept us in suspense for months with all of those dummy trailers and fake 'spoilers' to lead us all down a dark and confusing path of lies, AHS creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk confessed that the newest series will be American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare.

Nope, we dunno either - but after a bit of research, it turns out that there's major links back to Season 1.

Also, there's this creepy-ass poster to go with the big reveal. Gulp.

Basically, AHS6 will be telling the story of the mysterious disappearance of the colony of Roanoke, with one half of the show covering a retelling today of the disappearance, while the other half is a rewind reenactment of what actually happened.

Here's where things get creepy though, as back in Season 1 (Murder House) Sarah Paulson's character Billie Dean told the tale of Roanoke:

"In 1590, on the coast of what we now know as North Carolina, the entire colony of Roanoke - all 117 men, women, and children - died inexplicably. It became known as the ghost colony because the spirits remained. They haunted the native tribes living in the surrounding areas. Killing indiscriminately... Before the spirits could cause them any more harm, [an] elder completed the curse that would banish the ghosts forever. By uttering a single word. The same word found carved on a post at the abandoned colony. Croatoan."

REMEMBER?
