American Horror Story fans don’t have long to wait until the latest spooky season arrives on our screens.
Delicate, the twelfth (technically fourteenth) installment in the AHS universe, will follow the story of a young successful woman struggling to conceive and the sinister twists and turns of the process.
The latest episodes, set for release on September 20, will see Kim Kardashian in her acting debut alongside fellow newcomer Cara Delevingne and AHS royalty Emma Roberts.

And this isn’t the only new outing of the franchise this year with a fresh season of spin-off American Horror Stories set for release on October 26 with five new chilling tales.
Since the horror franchise began we have gone to the circus, joined a coven, and witnessed the end of the world across 138 episodes.
