Horror blogs bemoaned the realization that Kathy Bates won’t be returning for Season 7 of American Horror Story (something we reported on weeks ago) but sadness was tempered by news that another alum will be back for Cult. Emma Roberts was one of the stars of Coven (Season 3) and also worked closely with showrunner Ryan Murphy on Scream Queens.
“American Horror Story” creator Murphy announced the news of Roberts’ return on Instagram, writing, “Look who showed up on the set of ‘Cult’ looking glamorous and ready for action.” Roberts posted the same exact photo on her Instagram with the caption: “I’ve joined #ahscult will you?”
FX also confirmed with Variety that Roberts is indeed returning to “AHS” Season 7.
