‘American Horror Stories’ Adds Four Cast Members

American Horror Stories–not to be confused with its “parent” series, American Horror Story–is rounding out its ensemble cast very nicely.

Executive producer Ryan Murphy this week took to Instagram to introduce four new actors for the show–Kevin McHale (Glee), Dyllon Burnside (Pose), Nico Greetham (The Prom) and Charles Melton (Riverdale), as reported by comicbook.com. The photo on this page shows the “Fantastic Four”‘, as Murphy described the quartet. No information about their roles was divulged.

American Horror Stories–first announced last year–will consist of 16 one-hour, contained episodes that are slated to debut on FX on Hulu next month. Murphy described the new series as “the AHS spinoff. We are doing 16 one-hour standalone episodes delving into horror myths, legends and lore. Many of these episodes will feature AHS stars you know and love.” It’s also known that AHS favorite Sarah Paulson will direct at least one of the episodes.

“We couldn’t be more excited about our roster of new and returning shows,” said Eric Schrier, president of FX Entertainment. “It has been an extraordinary time for FX, with the launch of FX on Hulu, which has transformed our business.”

In related news, it was reported that American Horror StoryDouble Feature will begin once the spinoff concludes. The first episode of Double Feature is scheduled for the Halloween season.
