On the cusp of spooky season, everyone’s favorite horror anthology series is back for its twelfth installment.
American Horror Story: Delicate is the first season of the award-winning show created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck to be based on a book — drawing inspiration from Delicate Condition by Danielle Valentine. The buzz-worthy book details the horrifying pregnancy of an indie actress in the midst of an Oscar campaign.
AHS Season 12 sees the return of franchise regulars Emma Roberts and Billie Lourd, alongside newcomers to the series, Kim Kardashian and Cara Delevingne. The terrifying series aired on FX on September 20 and is now streaming on Hulu.
In this installation of AHS, Roberts plays Anna Alcott, an A-list actress making waves within the industry. Anna yearns to become a mother and embarks on a grueling IVF journey. As the buzz around her recent film grows, she fears that something may be targeting her — and her pursuit of motherhood.
Kim Kardashian makes her scripted TV debut in American Horror Story: Delicate. Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter of his excitement about casting a Kardashian, “Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family.”
This interview was conducted prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike, which began on July 13, 2023.
