Disney’s FX has announced that Kim Kardashian will be starring in the twelfth season of “American Horror Story” and it has also been revealed that Emma Roberts will also be returning to the show.
The upcoming season is going to be called “Delicate” and is based on Danielle Valentine’s upcoming novel “Delicate Condition”. The book is due to be released in August and here’s the official description for the book, which will give us a hint at what the new show is going to be about.
I wanted this baby so badly.But she may be the death of me… Anna Alcott is desperate to have a family. But as she tries to balance her increasingly public life as an indie actress with a gruelling IVF regime, she starts to suspect that someone is going to great lengths to make sure that never happens. Crucial medicines are lost. Appointments are moved without her knowledge. She’s sure she’s being followed. And when she finally does get pregnant, someone breaks into her house and steals the ultrasound photograph of her baby. But despite everything she’s gone through, not even her husband is willing to believe that someone is playing twisted games with her.
Then her doctors tell her she’s lost the baby. Despite her grief, Anna ignores the grave-faced men lecturing her – because she can still feel the baby moving, can see the toil it’s taking on her weakened body. Isolated in a remote snowbound town, Anna is sure that whoever has been following her is closing in. And as her symptoms become more terrifying, she can’t help but wonder what exactly is growing inside her… and why no-one will listen when she says that something is horribly wrong.
No details have been revealed about what part Kim or Emma will be playing, but Kim’s role was specifically written with her in mind. Emma Roberts has previously starred in “American Horror Story”.
In a statement to THR, the show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy said:
“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family. Emma and I are excited about collaborating with this true force in the culture. Halley Feiffer has written a fun, stylish and ultimately terrifying role especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done.”
The new season is going to be written and executive produced by Halley Feiffer and also executive produced by Ryan Murphy, co-creator Brad Falchuk, Alexis Martin Woodall and Scott Robertson. Filming for the new season is scheduled to start later this month in New York City and is expected to be released later this summer on FX and Hulu in the United States. The show is also released exclusively on Disney+ in many countries including the UK.
The previous eleven seasons of “American Horror Story” are available to stream now on Hulu in the United States and on Disney+ around the world.
