American Horror Story season 12, or American Horror Story: Delicate, is set to premiere on FX in September
A few weeks ago, we saw a teaser trailer for American Horror Story season 12 that promised these new episodes of the FX anthology series are “coming soon”. Now we know exactly how soon they’ll be arriving. FX has confirmed that “Part One” of the season will begin airing on September 20th – and along with the release date announcement comes the unveiling of a poster, which you can check out at the bottom of this article.
American Horror Story is an anthology series where each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a different set of characters and settings in the same fictional universe, and a storyline with its own “beginning, middle, and end.”
American Horror Story season 12 is going to be based on source material, which is a first for the show. The material in question is the novel Delicate Condition by Danielle Valentine – which is why American Horror Story season 12 is subtitled Delicate. Valentine’s novel Delicate Condition was just published this month, courtesy of Sourcebooks Landmark. (You can pick up a copy at THIS LINK.) It’s said to be a “gripping thriller about a woman who becomes convinced that a sinister figure is going to great lengths to make sure her pregnancy never happens.“ Here’s the full description: Anna Alcott is desperate to have a family. But as she tries to balance her increasingly public life as an indie actress with a grueling IVF journey, she starts to suspect that someone is going to great lengths to make sure that never happens. Crucial medicines are lost. Appointments get swapped without her knowledge. Cryptic warnings have her jumping at shadows. And despite everything she’s gone through to make this pregnancy a reality, not even her husband is willing to believe that someone is playing twisted games with her. Then her doctor tells her she’s had a miscarriage―except Anna’s convinced she’s still pregnant despite everything the grave-faced men around her claim. She can feel the baby moving inside her, can see the strain it’s taking on her weakening body. Vague warnings become direct threats as someone stalks her through the bleak ghost town of the snowy Hamptons. As her symptoms and sense of danger grow ever more horrifying, Anna can’t help but wonder what exactly she’s carrying inside of her…and why no one will listen when she says something is horribly, painfully wrong.
The TV adaptation is being described as “a feminist update of Rosemary’s Baby“.
The cast of American Horror Story season 12 / American Horror Story: Delicate includes Cara Delevingne (Carnival Row), American Horror Story regular Emma Roberts, “reality star, entrepreneur, podcaster and pop culture icon” Kim Kardashian, and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, who earned an Emmy nomination for her performance in the FX television series Pose, a series that American Horror Story creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk created with Steven Canals.
Kardashian is taking on a role that was written with her specifically in mind. This season of American Horror Story is being written and showrun by a single writer, Halley Feiffer. Murphy, Falchuk, and Feiffer are executive producing American Horror Story: Delicate with Alexis Martin Woodall and Scott Robertson. Filming began in New York City earlier this year.
