Kim Kardashian has been cast in Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story.”
The reality star made the announcement Monday on Instagram and will join “AHS” alum Emma Roberts in the show’s 12th season, titled “Delicate.”
“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the ‘AHS’ family,” co-creator Murphy told the Hollywood Reporter. “Emma and I are excited about collaborating with this true force in the culture.”
Kardashian’s post, which garnered a whopping 75,000 likes an hour after she posted, teases both names to the tone of an eerie rendition of “Rockabye Baby.”
The newest installment will be based on the novel “Delicate Condition” by Danielle Valentine, Murphy noted.
“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,” he added.
Kardashian’s reps declined to give any additional comments to The Post.
Valentine’s novel, which is set to hit bookshelves in August, has been described as “the feminist update to ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ we all needed” and tells the story of a woman who is convinced a sinister mastermind is attempting to sabotage her pregnancy.
This isn’t the 42-year-old’s first foray into acting, though. The reality star appeared in the 2008 satirical film “Disaster Movie.” She also landed roles in the 2013 drama “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor” and had a cameo in 2018’s star-studded “Ocean’s Eight” movie.
Kardashian also hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2021.
The superstar is the latest of several top-tier names that have appeared on the show such as Lady Gaga in “AHS: Hotel.”
This marks a comeback for series regular Roberts, who last starred in the show’s ninth season entitled “1984.”
Both Roberts’ and Kardashians’ parts alongside any plot details have been kept closely under wraps.
Kardashian’s fans were thrilled to hear she was cast in “AHS.”
“KIMBERLY ANNE KARDASHIAN WHAT IS GOING ON,” commented one fan.
“This is the 2023 plot twist I didn’t see coming,” said a second person.
The teaser noted the show will air this summer, but didn’t give an official premiere date.
