Kim Kardashian may have conquered the worlds of beauty, fashion and even the criminal justice system, but the mogul is set to take on a new challenge as an actress for season 12 of American Horror Story.
Though the billionaire has had a handful of appearances in shows like How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls and Paw Patrol, this will be her biggest scripted role yet. While not much has been shared about the cast, AHS alum Emma Roberts has been confirmed to star in this season.
Announcing the exciting news, Kardashian took to Instagram to share a teaser clip for the FX show. Featuring eerie music and graphics, the short clip read: “This Summer, Emma Roberts and Kim Kardashian are delicate.” She captioned the post with emojis of eyes and blood.
“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family,” said AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy about the reveal.
“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.”
Unlike previous seasons, which have all been original stories based on various themes and characters, this season, entitled American Horror Story: Delicate, is partly based on Danielle Valentine’s novel Delicate Condition.
The novel, which will only be released in August, is described as a “gripping thriller about a woman who becomes convinced that a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens.” It’s also been described as “the feminist update to Rosemary’s Baby we all needed,” per a review by author Andrea Bartz.
Filming for the upcoming season is scheduled to begin in New York City later in April, with a summer premiere promised to fans.
