EMMA Roberts and Gus Kenworthy have been confirmed for American Horror Story: Season 9.

Series creator Ryan Murphy broke the news on Instagram this week by posting a photo of Olympic medallist and actor Kenworthy with the message: “That special moment when you realise you have an Olympic medal AND will be playing Emma Roberts’ boyfriend on American Horror Story Season 9.”

Pro skier Kenworthy, a silver medallist in the men’s slopestyle at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, made his TV acting debut in The Real O’Neals on ABC in 2016, followed by Sharknado 5: Global Swarming in which he did a cameo as a skier.

Roberts is an American Horror Story veteran, having first appeared in Coven (aka season 3), as well as Freak Show (season 4), Cult (season 7) and Apocalypse (season 8).

She also starred in Murphy’s Scream Queens comedy on Fox.

The ninth season of American Horror Story is due to air sometime this year (2019).
