Kim Kardashian took to her Instagram to share that she will be starring in the new season of American Horror Story. The upcoming 12th season of the show will feature the reality star, businesswoman, podcaster, and pop culture phenomenon in a role created especially for her. She appears in the episode alongside returning AHS performer and frequent collaborator Emma Roberts. Halley Feiffer will write and direct the episode, a first for the program. The popular TV producer and filmmaker, who is friends with Kardashian, is believed to have been impressed by her well-received hosting role on Saturday Night Live in 2021. They started talking about creating a distinctive role for her first scripted TV appearance last summer. The specifics of Kardashian’s and Roberts’ roles are being kept under wraps, but this morning’s cryptic Instagram post from Kardashian, hinted at her involvement. Despite the fact that Kardashian has acted in the past, this will be her most well-known project to date. Additionally, the AHS isn’t really an outlier when it comes to A-list stunt casting. Since Jessica Lange was cast in season one, the show has included a steady stream of high-profile actors. In season five, Lady Gaga was famously cast after she had previously only appeared in lavish music videos, paving the path for her lucrative film career.
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. 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. – said AHS co-creator Murphy in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter
