American Horror Story season 12: release date, trailer and news
The new season will star Kim Kardashian and Emma Roberts.
American Horror Story will soon be entering its 12th season – and now we have a full length trailer teasing more about the terrifying new series.
The season, titled Delicate, will feature Emma Roberts as the main character, who's undergoing some form of fertility treatment. But it doesn't exactly look like your standard pregnancy.
Elsewhere, Kim Kardashian is starring as a character named Siobhan Walsh - but something tells us she's not all she seems.
The upcoming season of American Horror Story was first announced in January 2020, when FX renewed the Ryan Murphy series for three additional seasons and, since then, cast details have been dripping in.

Matt Czuchry was one of the first cast members announced for season 12, with The Hollywood Reporter reporting that the star had joined the cast earlier in April 2023 fresh off the cancellation of Fox's The Resident.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian has also joined the cast of season 12 and will star alongside returning alum Emma Roberts.
Kardashian made the announcement on Monday 10th April, posting a teaser video featuring an eerie version of Rock-a-Bye Baby.
Roberts later posted the same video on her Instagram, alongside the caption: “This summer... Kim and I are DELICATE.”
“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family,” co-creator Ryan Murphy said in a statement.
“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.”
Roberts joined the show as a series regular in 2013, before eventually exiting after its ninth season.
Who will Kim Kardashian play in American Horror Story season 12?
Kim Kardashian will be playing a character named Siobhan Walsh. While the full extent of her role is yet to be revealed, in the trailer, she appears to be looking after Roberts' character Anna. But it seems there's more to the character than meets the eye.
American Horror Story will mark one of Kardashian's biggest acting roles yet, with the reality TV star previously having appeared in Disaster Movie, CSI: NY and Drop Dead Diva.
Kardashian has also previously made cameos as herself in Ocean's Eight, 2 Broke Girls and 30 Rock.
