We know that there is already some familiar faces joining ‘American Horror Story: Cult‘ and now Emma Roberts (‘We’re the Millers,”Nerve’) has returned to the franchise! She’s been on Fox’s ‘Scream Queens’ for the past two seasons which is also by Ryan Murphy but now has returned! It’ll be interesting to see what part that he has in store for her after having previously played Madison Montgomery in ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ and Maggie Esmerelda in ‘American Horror Story: Freak Show.’

Murphy teased her return by saying that “Look who showed up on the set of Cult looking glamorous and ready for action” with quite a fun outfit as you can see here:

Roberts herself took to Twitter later in the day to confirm that she was indeed part of the cast.

Personally, I’d be happy to join the cast! However, I suspect she meant as viewers and not background cultists.

One person who won’t be drinking the kool-aid this season is Kathy Bates who has been a regular since the third season of ‘American Horror Story: Coven.’ Bates has a scheduling conflict due to shooting for her upcoming Netflix comedy series ‘Disjointed.’ There Bates will play as Ruth who is “a perpetually stoned Los Angeles cannabis-lover living out her longtime dream as a dispensary owner.”

I’m not going to lie, as much as I wish Bates were returning to ‘American Horror Story’ the thought of her playing that part is amusing by itself, and I can’t wait to see it.

Are you happy to hear that Emma Roberts is returning to ‘American Horror Story: Cult’? Sad that we won’t be seeing Kathy Bates this season? Share your thoughts below!
