American Horror Story: Delicate Part One Arriving on September 20th
A new Emma Roberts-starring key art poster confirms Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story: Delicate Part One for September 20th.
Okay, this was a pleasant surprise for a Tuesday morning. We were wondering how the ongoing SAG-AFTRA & WGA strikes would impact the upcoming season of Ryan Murphy & Brad Falchuk's American Horror Story: Delicate (Season 12) – with the assumption being that we would get an early 2024 debut. Well, a new key art poster released today confirmed that we won't have to wait that long to check out what the Emma Roberts, Kim Kardashian & Cara Delevingne-starring season has to offer – well, at least part of it. That's right, we have some very disturbing artwork spotlighting a very pregnant Roberts clearly not having a "normal" pregnancy – with September 20th set for the date of Part One – take a look:
With Roberts, Kardashian & Delevingne set to be joined by Matt Czuchry, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Julie White, Debra Monk, Zachary Quinto, and Denis O'Hare (either starring or guest-starring), here's a look back at an official teaser for FX's American Horror Story: Delicate – with Part One arriving on September 20th:

With the cast listed above in-play, it was also confirmed that Halley Feiffer (American Crime Story, Kidding) will be the lone writer for the season as well as showrunner. We also learned that Murphy and Kardashian began speaking last summer about developing a role for her scripted television series debut. "Kim is among the biggest and brightest television stars in the world, and we are thrilled to welcome her to the AHS family," Murphy said in a statement to THR. "Emma and I are excited about collaborating with this true force in the culture. Halley Feiffer has written a fun, stylish, and ultimately terrifying role, especially for Kim, and this season is ambitious and "unlike anything we have ever done."
As for what that "Delicate" season subtitle tease (with the sounds & background visuals involving kids), look no further than the long-running anthology series' source material. The official overview for Danielle Valentine's Delicate Condition reads that the novel is "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." One author listed on the site describes the upcoming novel as "the feminist update to 'Rosemary's Baby' we all needed" (and we offer more details on the novel here):
Emma Roberts Talks American Horror Story 12: Delicate
Speaking with Bustle regarding how she approaches the festival season (Coachella, Revolve, etc.), Roberts was asked how her Season 12 character compares to the ones that she's portrayed during previous seasons. "This character is much more grown up," Roberts shared. "She dresses very Carolyn Bessette [-Kennedy], '90s New York — I'm obsessed with my character's style this season." Bessette-Kennedy was married to John F. Kennedy Jr. and an American publicist for Calvin Klein. Every aspect of the couple's relationship was under the media microscope for years – until the couple and Bessette-Kennedy's older sister, Lauren, died in a plane crash off the coast of Martha's Vineyard in 1999.
