Ryan Murphy's FX anthology series "American Horror Story" has just added yet another star into its roster.
Billie Lourd, who appeared in Murphy's other series "Scream Queens," has been tapped to play an undisclosed role in the horror show.
Deadline has confirmed that the 24-year-old actress is going to appear in "American Horror Story" Season 7. But as for who she will play, unfortunately, the production is still keeping everything under wraps. However, it is hinted out that Lourd will play a lead role opposite of Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
Lourd first made her onscreen debut at one of Murphy's series, the horror-comedy "Scream Queens," where she played as Chanel #3. She will be joined by another actor who has just been reportedly confirmed for "American Horror Story" Season 7, Billy Eichner.
The premise of "American Horror Story" Season 7 will be greatly influenced by the recent 2016 Presidential race, according to show creator Murphy. Fans shouldn't, however, expect to see United States President, Donald Trump, and his opponent during the election, Hilary Clinton, as characters in the upcoming season, the creator said while speaking with E Online earlier in March.
Murphy clarified that Paulson is not going to portray as Clinton in "American Horror Story" Season 7, further saying that the show is "always about allegory" and the election was also the same. "It's our jumping off point. It is about the election we just went through and what happened on that night and the fallout of that night, which to many people, from all sides of the camps is a horror story," he added.
The seventh season of the show is being expected to premiere on FX sometime in Fall 2017. No official word yet coming from the production regarding the specific release date for "American Horror Story." More news and updates about the matter should surface in the coming months.
