At the helm of most of our beloved TV dramas and angst-fuelled coming of age tales on the big screen is entertainment mogul Ryan Murphy. Standing as the brains behind hits such as Glee, Scream Queens, Pose and The Prom, the director, writer and producer has shot countless actors into the depths of stardom and produced award-winning displays over the years. So, when the writer embarks on any new project, it makes sense for him to look to the stars of his previous works to fill out casts. And, this is exactly what he has done for the reboot of one of his most successful projects American Horror Story.
Taking to Instagram to reveal the cast of the upcoming American Horror Stories series, Murphy caused quite a stir as his post saw Glee’s Kevin McHale and Riverdale’s Charles Melton posing next to the stars of Pose and The Prom Dyllón Burnside and Nico Greetham. And, with the director’s caption of “The Fantastic Four” describing this colliding of TV minds best, the prospect of the dynamic group starring alongside resident American Horror Story characters in the 16 gory episodes set to fill out the series has us both frightened and delighted.
Set for release in July, the series is shaping up to be as explosive as the original. And, as multiple fandoms bracing to see their beloved stars falling through witches covens and freaky circuses in what is set to be a truly horrific yet masterful display, it is clear that Ryan Murphy has got his casting spot on, again.
