Don’t freak out, but Billie “Scream Queens” Lourd and Billy “On The Street” Eichner are confirmed to join the ensemble cast for the upcoming season 7 of ‘American Horror Story‘.
Okay, now you can freak out.
Details about Eichner and Lourd’s characters have been kept under wraps, but we know that Lourd, who is the late Carrie Fisher‘s daughter, is set to star opposite veteran AHS player Sarah Paulson.
Other stuff we know about AHS S7: it’s election-themed, it starts the day after the 2016 US presidential election, and it’s probably going to make you crap your pants. Again.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter:
“American Horror Story is going to be about the election that we just went through. And what I’m interested in doing is not just the obvious, single-minded point of view but rather express all sides of that equation.“All of the stuff that I’m developing now is going to be about illuminating and highlighting people who don’t have a voice in our culture — people who are ignored by the current administration and who are afraid and feel terrorized that their lives are going to be taken away.”
Considering that the current state of the world does evoke feelings of genuine terror at the best of times, yeah, this sounds pretty damn spooky.
