Part two of Ryan Murphy’s 12th season of “American Horror Story,” titled “Delicate,” is finally here. The first of this installment’s five episodes will air on FX on Wednesday, Apr. 3 at 10 p.m. ET, and will be available to stream on Hulu the following day.

In the 12th season, wich first premiered in September of 2023, Kim Kardashian and Cara Delevingne joined “AHS” veteran Emma Roberts, who stars as Anna Alcott, an actor who finds her attempts at pregnancy sabotaged. The season is based on Danielle Valentine’s thriller novel “Delicate Condition,” the first plot of the Murphy anthology series to originate from a book.

Kardashian’s leading role in the 12th season marks the most prominent acting role to date for the reality star. Other cast members of Season 12 include Zachary Quinto, Annabelle Dexter-Jones, Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, Odessa A’zion, Billie Lourd, Julie White, Debra Monk and Denis O’Hare.

Valentine, whose book was released on Aug. 1, calls the story “a body horror novel about pregnancy.”

“The ways that we describe pregnancy—delicate condition, bun in the oven, she’s in a family way—it’s so infantilizing for something that is among the most dangerous, life-changing experiences that a human being can go through,” said Valentine in an interview with Vanity Fair. Her book, which was optioned by Murphy in 2022, was recreated by Halleu Feifer, who also serves as a showrunner for “AHS” Season 12.

Stream “American Horror Story: Delicate” Part 2 on Hulu starting Apr. 3.
