Kim Kardashian is joining the cast of American Horror Story for Season 12

Kim Kardashian is joining the cast of American Horror Story for Season 12

The reality TV icon will have a main role in the new season alongside Emma Roberts.

Kim Kardashian will be using her acting chops once again in the upcoming season of American Horror Story.

The reality TV star surprised everyone on Monday (10 April) by confirming she'll be swapping diamond earrings, Bentleys and Balenciaga outfits for a starring role in the 12th season of the frightening anthology series.

Check out the teaser here:

Kardashian will also be starring alongside American Horror Story alum Emma Roberts, who is making her return to the franchise.

Both women shared an Instagram video on their profiles confirming the casting news set to the unsettling broken tune of 'Rock a-Bye Baby'.

They also both included incredibly vague captions, with Emma writing: "This summer…Kim and I are DELICATE", and Kardashian simply including an eye and blood drop emoji.

FX confirmed Kardashian's casting to Variety, but hasn't elaborated further on what the newest series will be about.

And The Hollywood Reporter also said that creator, Ryan Murphy, was apparently very impressed with the reality star's performance as a guest host on Saturday Night Live in 2021.

The pair reportedly then began discussing the possibility of Kardashian joining the AHS family last summer.

Murphy told the publication that the new season will be 'ambitious' and 'sexy', adding that Kardashian's character was even 'specifically written with her in mind'.

The 12th season will also be written and run by a single writer, Halley Feiffer.

“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." Murphy said.

"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.”

The season will be titled American Horror Story: Delicate, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and before you ask, it has no connection to the hit Taylor Swift song of the same name.

Emma Roberts is also returning to the franchise.

It's reportedly partly based on the Danielle Valentine's thriller novel, named Delicate Condition, which is described as a feminist update of the horror classic Rosemary’s Baby.

Kardashian is certainly no stranger to television, having been front and center in both Keeping Up With The Kardashians and The Kardashians.

But the acting world is not strange to her either, with the mum-of-four having had previous acting roles in Disaster Movie and the Tyler Perry film Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counsellor.

However, her newest part in American Horror Story will certainly be her most prominent one to date.
