Kim Kardashian is set to join Season 12 of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series “American Horror Story.” Kardashian made the announcement on her Instagram account, posting a teaser video along with the cryptic “”
Kardashian will be joining “American Horror Story” regular Emma Roberts in the 12th season, which will be called “Delicate.” Roberts posted the same video as Kardashian with the caption, “This summer…Kim and I are DELICATE.” Season 12 will mark Roberts’ return the franchise; she last appeared in 2019, having starred in four other seasons.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, the role was written specifically by Murphy for Kardashian, who are friends. Kardashian has acted before, but this would mark her first high-profile role. Murphy said in a statement: “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 12th season’s title, Delicate, is partially based on Danielle Valentine’s upcoming novel Delicate Condition, which will be released in August. The book is described “a gripping thriller that follows a woman convinced a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens―while the men in her life refuse to believe a word she says.” Halley Feiffer, who has penned episodes on “American Horror Story” and “American Crime Story,” will write all episodes and serve as showrunner on the 12th season. In an Instagram post, Feiffer wrote, “Writing every episode and showrunning a @ryanmurphyproductions show is a dream for any writer. For someone who has called this man my hero and inspiration for 20 years, it’s unreal. Not to mention working with these two iconic women. Cannot wait to share our baby with you.”
