Kim Kardashian, the reality star, entrepreneur, podcaster, and pop culture icon, would be joining the ranks of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story (AHS) family. But it’s true! Kardashian has just signed on to star in the upcoming 12th season of the hit FX anthology series, in a role that was specifically written with her in mind.

This surprising news comes hot on the heels of Kardashian’s well-received hosting gig on Saturday Night Live in 2021, which caught the attention of Murphy, who is known for his eye-catching casting choices.

Murphy, the co-creator of AHS, expressed his excitement about welcoming Kardashian to the show, stating, “Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family.”

He also revealed that the upcoming season, titled “Delicate,” will be written and showrun by a single writer, Halley Feiffer, a departure from the show’s usual approach. Feiffer has crafted a fun, stylish, and ultimately terrifying role for Kardashian, making this season unlike anything AHS has done before.

The details of Kardashian’s role, as well as that of returning AHS star Emma Roberts, are being kept under tight wraps. However, fans of the show have been buzzing with anticipation since Kardashian posted a cryptic message on her Instagram account, which is the eighth-most-followed in the world, hinting at her involvement in AHS.

This unexpected casting choice follows AHS’s tradition of A-list stunt casting, which has included big names like Jessica Lange and Lady Gaga in previous seasons.

What sets “Delicate” apart from previous seasons of AHS is that it will be based, at least in part, on Danielle Valentine’s upcoming novel “Delicate Condition,” set to be released in August from Sourcebooks Landmark.

Described as a gripping thriller with a feminist update to “Rosemary’s Baby,” the novel tells the story of a woman who becomes convinced that someone is trying to prevent her from getting pregnant. This unique source material adds an intriguing twist to the already highly anticipated season of AHS.

For Kardashian, this will be her most high-profile acting effort to date, although she has acted before. It’s also a strategic move for her relationship with Disney, as her family recently launched their reality show “The Kardashians” on Hulu, which is owned by Disney.

FX, the network that airs AHS, is also a part of Disney’s programming slate, making Kardashian’s involvement in AHS a doubling down on her connection with the entertainment conglomerate.

Roberts, who has been a part of AHS’s rotating cast since the 2013 entry “Coven,” is also making a highly anticipated return to the franchise after a four-year hiatus. Feiffer, who takes over showrunning duties for “Delicate,” has previously written for shows like “Dear Edward,” “Roar,” “Kidding,” and Murphy’s series “Impeachment: American Crime Story.”

The new season of AHS, executive produced by Murphy, co-creator Brad Falchuk, Feiffer, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Scott Robertson, is set to begin shooting in New York City later this month, with a summer premiere anticipated. Murphy and FX are expected to announce the exact premiere date in June.

As one of the longest-running and most successful properties in Murphy’s TV portfolio, with over 100 Emmy nominations and 13 wins to date, AHS continues to captivate audiences with its unique blend of horror, suspense, and unexpected casting choices. And with the addition of Kardashian to the cast, “Delicate” promises to be a season that fans won’t want to miss.
