As has become the norm, Murphy is doing his best to keep the upcoming season shrouded in secrecy, so his announcement didn't reveal much more than the fact Haynes has joined the cast. Murphy kept his message short and sweet, simply writing, "Welcome to American Horror Story, Colton Haynes." He did also give us an image to analyze, though, showing the anthology series' newest star with makeup smudged around his mouth and collarbone.
The red lipstick on Haynes reminds us of clowns, which is fitting. Murphy told EW in late 2016 that Season 7 would include characters from Season 4, "Freak Show," after all. The show creator has also revealed that the upcoming installment will take place in the aftermath of last year's presidential election. Scary indeed.
"American Horror Story" Season 7 is set to premiere this fall.
