Kim Kardashian has been announced to have joined the 12th season of American Horror Story.

Kardashian, as first revealed by the Hollywood Reporter on Monday, will join Emma Roberts (no stranger to the larger AHS universe) in FX’s upcoming Delicate in an undisclosed role. In a statement, Ryan Murphy—the co-creator of the longstanding anthology hit—noted that showrunner Halley Feiffer wrote Kim’s part “especially for” her.

“Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family,” Murphy told the publication.

Complex has reached out to Murphy’s rep for more info.

The new AHS will be pulling from Danielle Valentine’s Delicate Condition novel, though the extent to which it will do so remains a mystery. The book, out this August, is billed as “a gripping thriller that follows a woman convinced a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens―while the men in her life refuse to believe a word she says.”

According to Valentine, readers can expect her “creepiest book yet.”

Season 11 of American Horror Story, AHS: NYC, wrapped in November with a Jennifer Lynch-directed episode. At the time of this writing, a premiere date for Season 12 had not been announced. THR said Monday, however, that a summer debut is expected.
