The book “Delicate Condition” served as inspiration for the new season, which features such stars as Emma Roberts and Kim Kardashian.
Season 12 of American Horror Story is already taking shape.
FX renewed the Ryan Murphy sitcom for three more seasons in January 2020, confirming the following season.
FX chairman John Landgraf said in a statement, “Ryan and Brad are the undisputed masters of horror TV shows.” American Horror Story is the highest-rated show on FX and has been for over a decade. As Dana Walden and our studio partners put it, “We are grateful to them for committing to another three years.”
Casting news has been coming in since then, and former cast member Emma Roberts is expected to return.
One of Kim Kardashian’s greatest acting gigs to date was announced in April when she joined the cast. (Although she is most known for her reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians and The Kardashians, she has also performed in Disaster Movie, CSI: NY, Drop Dead Diva, Ocean’s Eight, 2 Broke Girls, and 30 Rock, among others, in cameo roles.)
Here’s everything you need to know about American Horror Story Season 12, from the confirmed cast members to the theme.

Who is in the cast of American Horror Story season 12?
After the termination of his FX series The Resident in April 2023, Matt Czuchry was one of the first cast members speculated to feature in AHS season 12. This was reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Later that month, Murphy posted a cryptic teaser on Instagram, confirming the participation of both Emma Roberts and Kim Kardashian.
“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family,” Murphy said in a statement to THR. I know that Emma and I will learn a lot from working with such a significant cultural influencer. This season is ambitious and unlike anything we have ever done, and Halley Feiffer has written a playful, stylish, and ultimately dangerous character just for Kim.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Murphy was pleased with Kardashian’s “well-received 2021 hosting gig on Saturday Night Live” and had started speaking with the reality star “last summer about crafting a unique role for her scripted TV debut.”
Cara Delevingne joined the cast in April 2023, although she has yet to share any information about her role.
Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, and Denis O’Hare were all confirmed to participate in the upcoming season by the teaser that premiered on September 6.
Is there a trailer for American Horror Story season 12?
FX released the first official teaser for season 12 in July 2023, giving viewers their first look at Kim Kardashian, Emma Roberts, and Cara Delevingne in costume. Each of the three ladies had a white bob, long eyelashes, and a bright red lip. A 30-second clip showing Kardashian rocking a baby to sleep while a spooky cover of “Rock-A-Bye Baby” plays in the background has gone viral.
The second official trailer was shown a month later. In the trailer, Delevingne’s character, a sinister-looking doctor, seems to have impregnated Roberts with a spider baby, sending her fleeing for her life.
Roberts’ heroine gets pregnant and has terrible dreams involving spiders, and the official trailer, published on September 6, gives a chilling glimpse into the trip she takes.
What is the theme of American Horror Story season 12?
“American Horror Story: Delicate” will be the title for this season. In contrast to previous seasons, which featured original stories based on a variety of subjects, this season will draw some inspiration from Danielle Valentine’s upcoming book, Delicate Condition.
According to THR, the book, due for release in August 2023, is “described as a gripping thriller about a woman who becomes convinced that a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens.” This book has been called “the feminist update to Rosemary’s Baby We All Needed,” and author Andrea Bartz has compared it to the classic.
