Fans of the FX horror anthology series, “American Horror Story,” have been eagerly awaiting the release of the official trailer for its 12th season, titled “Delicate.” The trailer is finally here, giving viewers a glimpse of what promises to be another chilling installment in the long-running series.
One of the most significant headlines for “Delicate” is the inclusion of reality TV star Kim Kardashian in a dramatic role. Kardashian joins the ranks of AHS regular Emma Roberts and newcomer Cara Delevingne, making for an intriguing ensemble cast. Other notable stars in the series include Matt Czuchry, Billie Lourd, Denis O’Hare, Leslie Grossman, and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez.
What sets “Delicate” apart from previous seasons of American Horror Story is that it is based on a novel, Danielle Valentine’s “Delicate Condition.” The novel is a gripping thriller that revolves around an actress, played by Emma Roberts in the show, who becomes convinced that a sinister figure is determined to prevent her pregnancy at all costs. The book has been described as a feminist update to the classic horror story “Rosemary’s Baby.”
This new season is divided into two parts, with the first part set to premiere on September 20. “Delicate” will initially air on FX and subsequently stream on Hulu the following day. As of now, a premiere date for the second part of the season has not been announced.
Ryan Murphy, the creator and producer of “American Horror Story,” has expressed his excitement for this season, noting that the sole writer and showrunner, Halley Feiffer, has crafted a thrilling role specifically for Kim Kardashian. Murphy has described “Delicate” as ambitious and unlike anything the series has done before.
“American Horror Story” has been a groundbreaking series in the horror genre, boasting a rich history of terrifying and thought-provoking seasons. With its enduring popularity, the show is currently the longest-running hour-long series in FX’s history. In fact, it has already been renewed for a 13th installment, keeping fans on the edge of their seats.
For those hungry for more horror, the AHS spinoff series, “American Horror Stories,” is also set to return with a four-episode Halloween event on October 26, exclusively on Hulu. The “American Horror Story” universe continues to expand, promising more spine-tingling thrills for horror enthusiasts.
