American Horror Story: Delicate (season 12) preview
The groundbreaking horror anthology is back as American Horror Story returns for its twelfth season, subtitled Delicate. For the first time, AHS is taking inspiration from existing source material, with this season based on author Danielle Valentine’s novel Delicate Condition.
While the plot of the show is being kept firmly under wraps, the novel follows Anna (Emma Roberts, AHS: 1984), a rising star in the film world convinced that malevolent forces are causing her failure to conceive a child, even after numerous rounds of IVF.
While the novel is described as a modern, feminist take on Rosemary’s Baby, it remains to be seen how close franchise creator Ryan Murphy and new showrunner Halley Feiffer (American Crime Story) stick to the novel with AHS being notorious for its horrific and bizarre storylines.
Also joining the cast for season 12 are Cara Delevigne (Carnival Row) as Meg and Kim Kardashian as Siobhan Walsh. While little has been revealed about their characters, promotional images of the pair conjure thoughts of nightmare maternity care.
Zachary Quinto (AHS: NYC) returns to the franchise while Matt Czuchry makes his AHS debut as Dexter Harding. Read on for full details on how to watch American Horror Story: Delicate online from anywhere.

American Horror Story will premiere on FX at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT on Wednesday, September 20th. The first half of the season will air weekly following that, with the remaining episodes set to air later in the year.
If you already have FX then you're all set, but if you're a cord-cutter, we recommend Sling TV - specifically the Sling Blue package, which includes FX and currently costs $22.50 for your first month with its 50% off introductory offer.
Hulu subscribers can also watch FX live with a Hulu with Live TV plan (at $64.99 per month), or the following day on Hulu’s on-demand only service which starts at $7.99/month. There are a few Hulu plans and prices to choose from, however, it's only the basic plan that provides a whopping 30-day Hulu free trial.
