The much-awaited Season 12 of American Horror Story, aptly titled Delicate, is set to feature Kim Kardashian and Emma Roberts in starring roles. This groundbreaking season is based on Danielle Valentine’s captivating novel, Delicate Condition, and represents a significant departure from the series’ previous installments.
Recently unveiled details about the 12th season of American Horror Story highlight a unique approach for the series. For the first time in the show’s history, a season will be adapted from a novel – Danielle Valentine’s Delicate Condition. This adaptation has resulted in the season being subtitled Delicate. Deadline has confirmed that Emma Roberts, a series regular, will be joined by reality star, entrepreneur, and pop culture icon Kim Kardashian in leading the cast.
Kardashian’s role has been meticulously crafted for her by the season’s sole writer and showrunner, Halley Feiffer. American Horror Story, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, is an anthology series, with each season functioning as a self-contained miniseries. The show delves into various characters and settings within the same fictional universe, with each season offering a distinct storyline.
Murphy, expressing his excitement about Kardashian’s involvement in the project, stated, “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.”
Danielle Valentine’s novel, Delicate Condition, is slated for release in August, published by Sourcebooks Landmark. The enthralling thriller narrates the story of a woman who becomes increasingly convinced that a sinister figure is determined to prevent her pregnancy at all costs.
American Horror Story: Delicate, or Season 12, is executive produced by Murphy, Falchuk, and Feiffer, in collaboration with Alexis Martin Woodall and Scott Robertson. Filming is scheduled to commence in New York City later this month, with the season anticipated to premiere on FX this summer. Eager fans can expect an exact premiere date announcement from Murphy and FX in June, adding to the excitement surrounding this innovative season.
