There are few shows that make us both mess our pants (sorry) and excitedly jump up and down when the title music comes on (even though it is super creepy) – but American Horror Story does just that. Bravo, AHS. With six previous seasons behind its belt, American Horror Story have brought us their sinister twists and turns from an evil house, an asylum, a witch coven, a freak show, a hotel, a roanoke…and now, they’re setting up shop in a cult. And with just a month to go until season 7, we’re getting pretty darn impatient.
Thankfully, the American Horror Story gods (or more likely, devils) have given us something to work with, as we’ve now got a full cast to obsess over. American Horror Story: Cult will follow the lives of some of our favorite characters during the 2016 presidential election (controversial; we love it) and will heavily feature creepy clowns and a heck load of bees. Great.
The new season will also feature our favorite AHS alumni, Emma Roberts. Yay! Roberts confirmed the news on her Instagram page yesterday, showing a picture of her brandishing a knife with the caption, ‘I’ve joined #ahscult will you?’
We’ll go anywhere you want us too, Emma. So, who else?
Emma will be joined on the set by her on-off boyfriend and long-term American Horror Story actor, Evan Peters who will star as the blue-haired (and even more attractive than ever) Kai.
After a year out, Freak Show, Coven and Hotel actress, Mare Winningham will be returning to join the cult.
Cheyenne Jackson will be wowing us once more with his sickeningly white teeth (not that we’re jealous or anything).
A few weeks ago, it was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con that Frances Conroy will be returning to her AHS home. Yes!
Conroy will also be joined on set by Adina Porter who has appeared in both Roanoke and Murder House.
Chaz Bono will also be returning, after starring as a hillbilly in Roanoke.
There are also some newbies joining the cult! Including Emma Roberts’ Scream Queens co-star Billie Lourd.
But Lourd won’t be the only newbie. She will also be joined by Colton Haynes.
And Leslie Grossman.
And Alison Phil.
And Billy Eichner.
Aaaand the always awesome, Lena Dunham.
The new season debuts on September 5. Welcome to the cult!
