As if she isn’t busy enough the megastar and businesswoman Kim Kardashian is adding scream queen to her resume. Kardashian made the announcement that she’ll be joining AHS alum Emma Roberts in the shows 12th season via a teaser video on social media. The eerie teaser reveals that the new season of the Ryan Murphy anthology series is titled “Delicate” and will premiere this summer. Emma Roberts also shared the teaser on Instagram with the caption, “This summer…Kim and I are DELICATE.”
Delicate is based on Danielle Valentine‘s thriller novel Delicate Condition which will be out on August 8. The novel 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. Halley Feiffer will serve as the only writer as well as showrunner which is a first for American Horror Story.
Kardashian isn’t a stranger to television having starred in her family’s reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians for 15 years and now Hulu’s The Kardashians which is in its third season. As far as scripted television goes this will be Kardashian’s biggest role yet and the first in 10 years. She has made a series of cameos as herself on sitcoms and movies such as How I Met Your Mother, 30 Rock, 2 Broke Girls, and Ocean’s Eight. Kardashian’s minor roles include CSI: NY, Drop Dead Diva, and Disaster Movie. She also has voiceover credits in Paw Patrol and American Dad.
“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 The Hollywood Reporter. ”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.”
Kardashian’s role was made specifically for her. Murphy was reportedly impressed by her 2021 SNL hosting debut and the two began speaking last summer about creating this unique role for her.
