The first teaser for American Horror Story season 12 has unveiled franchise newcomers Kim Kardashian and Cara Delevingne, as well as a new role for regular favourite Emma Roberts.


The long-running anthology series created by prolific producer Ryan Murphy tells a different dark tale each year, usually with entirely different characters, although there have been some surprise returns and crossovers in the past.

This time around, the story is inspired by the as-yet-unreleased novel Delicate Condition by author Danielle Valentine, which follows a woman whose attempts to start a family are being thwarted by a sinister, unknown figure.

Kardashian was announced for a starring role in April, which raised eyebrows due to her limited acting credits, which have largely involved comedic portrayals of herself in the likes of Last Man Standing, 30 Rock and 2 Broke Girls.

The reality star, who is currently chronicling her life on Disney Plus series The Kardashians, is certainly sporting a different look in the cult-like teaser for American Horror Story: Delicate. Watch below:

At the time of Kardashian's casting, producer Murphy said; “Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family.

“Emma [Roberts] 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.”
