Kim Kardashian and Emma Roberts lead the cast of American Horror Story season 12, which is based on the novel Delicate Condition
The first details on American Horror Story season 12 have just been revealed… and things are going to be a bit different this season. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that, for the first time ever, an American Horror Story season is going to be based on source material. The material in question is the novel Delicate Condition by Danielle Valentine – which is why American Horror Story season 12 is subtitled delicate. Deadline has also confirmed that the cast of this season is being headed up by American Horror Story regular Emma Roberts and “reality star, entrepreneur, podcaster and pop culture icon” Kim Kardashian.
Kardashian is taking on a role that was written with her specifically in mind. This season of American Horror Story is being written and shown by a single writer, Halley Feiffer.
Created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, American Horror Story is an anthology series where each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a different set of characters and settings in the same fictional universe, and a storyline with its own “beginning, middle, and end.”
Murphy had this to say about Kardashian joining the show: “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.“
Valentine’s novel Delicate Condition is set to reach store shelves in August, courtesy of Sourcebooks Landmark. It’s said to be 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.“
Murphy, Falchuk, and Feiffer are executive producing American Horror Story season 12, gold American Horror Story: Delicate, with Alexis Martin Woodall and Scott Robertson. Filming is set to begin in New York City later this month, and the season is expected to premiere on FX sometime this summer. Murphy and FX will announce an exact premiere date in June.
