The horror anthology series that has enchanted viewers over the years, American Horror Story, returns with a promising twelfth season. Here, we unveil the official release date of September 20 in the U.S., marking the beginning of a new terrifying adventure. Interestingly, this season is distinguished by a structure divided into two distinct “parts,” and the mystery still surrounds the schedule of their consecutive or separate airing.
Star-Studded Casting: New Faces and Expected Returns
Emma Roberts: Known for her role in various seasons such as Coven, Freak Show, Cult, Apocalypse, and 1984, Emma makes her grand return.
Kim Kardashian: The arrival of the famous reality TV star has elicited various reactions, but the decision was strongly defended by Ryan Murphy himself.
Cara Delevingne: The model and actress also join the cast, adding even more depth and diversity to the team.
A Captivating Plotline
Titled “Delicate,” this season is inspired by Danielle Valentine’s upcoming novel, “Delicate Condition.” The narrative explores the story of a woman who believes a sinister presence is hindering her pregnancy. The novel is presented as a feminist update to “Rosemary’s Baby,” with parallels to “Alien” in its approach. We can expect a blend of horror and suspense that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
An Enigmatic Teaser
The announcement of the launch date was accompanied by the unveiling of two captivating posters, along with new images posted by FX on August 15. The posters feature characters Kim Kardashian and Emma Roberts, hinting at a complex and mysterious plot. One showcases Emma Roberts cradling a bulbous giant spider, as if holding her pregnant belly, while images of Cara Delevingne with a syringe containing blue liquid and a spider at its center add to the aura of mystery.
Kim Kardashian’s decision to join the cast was one of the highlights of the season’s announcement. Ryan Murphy even stood up to defend his choice, claiming that Kim was one of the “biggest and brightest TV stars in the world.” It appears that the reality TV star took this opportunity seriously, taking acting lessons to prepare for her role.
Mark your calendars for September 20, as “Delicate” promises to be a thrilling season of American Horror Story. With its stellar casting, inspired plotline, and mysterious imagery, the twelfth season seems ready to redefine the genre of televised horror.
