Winter is coming — and so are the clowns! We are still weeks away from the highly anticipated premiere of American Horror Story: Cult, but fans are in luck because the official character posters for Season 7 have been released.
We already have a list of confirmed cast members that are set to take on the election-themed horrors of Cult — some are returning fan favorites and the rest are newcomers. Although most American Horror Story fans were a little disheartened by the lack of familiar faces in this year's cast lineup, the latest character posters seemed to have restored the faith in even the most doubtful. What are you waiting for? Check out the creepy posters below.
Scream Queens star Billie Lourd makes her #AmericanHorrorStory debut as Winter Anderson. Ryan Murphy teased her character earlier this year with this Instagram post. With the clown doll and freaky clown creeping under the bed, it appears that Lourd's character may have a connection with the clown cult that is set to terrorize the audience in Season 7.
Alison Pill makes her American Horror Story debut as Ivy Mayfair-Richards. Fans spotted Pill on the set of Season 7, so her casting was never officially announced. On-set pictures also revealed that filming was being shot in and outside of a butchery. Is Ivy our butcher on Main Street?
Billy Eichner makes his American Horror Story debut as Harrison Wilton. The Billy On The Street star appears to be the only character poster (so far) with yellow letters. It is also known that Harrison is close with Sarah Paulson's character, Ally. Will she have a spot of yellow too?
Hotel and Roanoke star Cheyenne Jackson joins Season 7 as Dr. Rudy Vincent. If you take a closer look at the table next to him (and not at the looming clowns in the background), you will see an object that vaguely resembles the ambidexterity clue that Ryan Murphy teased earlier. Will Rudy have his hands in both the political game and the clown cult?
Colton Haynes makes his American Horror Story debut as Detective Samuels. Haynes recently shared this picture of himself and co-star Billie Lourd on a break, and it appears that Lourd is in a prison jumpsuit. With theories circulating that Haynes and Lourd are part of the clown cult, is Samuels a corrupt detective that sets his cult mate free from imprisonment?
By the looks of things, Season 7 will definitely be an interesting one for all of our new cast members. Official character posters for the rest of the cast, which include: #EvanPeters, #SarahPaulson, Frances Conroy, Emma Roberts and Mare Winningham have all yet to be released.
