Everyone’s favorite horror anthology series is back for its 12th chapter — just in time for spooky season. American Horror Story: Delicate is the first season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck’s award-winning show to be based on a book. AHS: Delicate draws its inspiration from the novel Delicate Condition by Danielle Valentine, telling the story of an actress who, in the midst of a grueling IVF journey and an Oscar campaign, begins to sense a sinister force conspiring against her.
AHS: Delicate also marks unscripted reality star Kim Kardashian’s first foray into scripted acting. Though, it won’t be American Horror Story’s first time spotlighting a first-time actress — before Lady Gaga was winning Oscars, she was playing the blood-curdling Countess in AHS: Hotel. Will Delicate inspire Kim to dive deeper into an acting career? Only time (and maybe the ratings) will tell.
Here’s everything you need to know about American Horror Story: Delicate, including how to watch without cable, where to stream past seasons of AHS and more.
