EMMA Roberts has joined the cast of American Horror Story: Coven.

Details on which character she will play are being kept under wraps but The Hollywood Reporter states that she will be a party girl.

Based around a witch theme, the third season of American Horror Story will feature three characters playing real people, with co-star Kathy Bates being one of them.

It also sees Roberts joining a cast that already includes her boyfriend Evan Peters, who will be back for his third run.

In addition to Bates, other previously announced co-stars include Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe, while returning players are Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy and Lily Rabe.

Season three of the show is due to make its US debut in October.
