American Horror Story fans are in for a spine-chilling treat as the highly anticipated latest installment, “American Horror Story: Delicate,” approaches its release. This time, the show promises an intriguing twist with the addition of none other than Kim Kardashian in her acting debut. As the buzz surrounding this new season intensifies, let’s delve into everything we know about “American Horror Story: Delicate.”
Plot of “American Horror Story: Delicate”
The foundation of “American Horror Story: Delicate” is built upon Danielle Valentine’s novel, “Delicate Condition.” The novel’s premise revolves around a suspenseful narrative, wherein an actress grapples with a haunting belief that a malevolent force is orchestrating a sinister scheme to prevent her from experiencing pregnancy. This gripping thriller sets the stage for a compelling exploration of horror and psychological tension.
Undoubtedly, one of the most intriguing aspects of this new season is the star-studded ensemble cast. Kim Kardashian, a household name in her own right, ventures into the world of acting, marking her acting debut. She portrays the character of Siobhan Walsh, joining forces with seasoned actors Emma Roberts, who embodies Anna Victoria Alcott, and Cara Delevingne, who takes on the role of Anna Victoria’s enigmatic and nameless stalker. The chemistry among these talented actors is bound to deliver an electrifying performance.
In addition to these headlining stars, “American Horror Story: Delicate” features the return of beloved Ryan Murphy collaborators.
