American Horror Story has been scaring viewers out of their skin for six years now but, despite its age, the series has never ran out of steam or felt stale. This is likely due to the unique anthology format of the show which allows to change theme, location and cast each season,which helps the series maintain the element of surprise as well as making the storylines unpredictable.

After concluding its sixth season, there is a seventh season on the way later this year. FX has also renewed American Horror Story for an eighth and ninth season, so brace yourselves for plenty more brutal stabbings, gory killings, raunchy bathtub scenes and campy musical numbers because AHS isn't going anywhere.

Over the years, American Horror Story has been home to some of the biggest names in Hollywood and we suspect that Season 7 will be no different. To help you keep track, we've compiled this list of all of the confirmed members and their roles in Season 7.

Evan Peters

Character: TBA

American Horror Story made a star out of Evan Peters when he starred as Tate Langdon in the series creepy first season. Peters has taken part in every season of the show, playing a wildly different character each season.

Peters has been a vital part of each season which is why there was a bit of an outcry when he (finally) showed up on Roanoke only to be killed off — twice. While Peters' did make up for his short appearance with a couple of steamy scenes that made us hot under the collar, fans were not happy with his three episode stint.

The actor has been spotted on set sporting several different hair colors — including a purple tint reminiscent of his X-Men character.

Character: TBA

Sarah Paulson has been a mainstay of American Horror Story since Murder House and is one of the only cast members to play multiple characters in the same season. Her Asylum character Lana Winters — who recently popped up in the Roanoke finale — put her on the map and cemented her place as one of the strongest actors within the show.

Hot off her Emmy and Golden Globe winning performance as Marcia Clark in Ryan Murphy's The People Vs OJ: American Crime Story, Paulson delivered a phenomenal performance in Roanoke as actress Audrey Tindall and her fictional role Shelby Miller in the Roanoke Nightmare documentary.

Character described as:

"A close confidant of Paulson’s character and mostly will be wearing mysterious tank tops."

Eichner is an actor and comedian mostly known for his truTV comedy game series Billy On The Street. Unlike the other AHS cast members, Eichner is a newcomer, so it'll be interesting to see how big a part his character plays in Season 7.
