Meanwhile, still no word on the future of “Scream Queens.”
Deadline is reporting tonight that Billie Lourd, star of “Scream Queens” and daughter of the late Carrie Fisher, has just been cast alongside Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and the recently announced Billy Eichner in Season 7 of FX’s “American Horror Story.” Character details are being kept under wraps, but the site notes she’s come aboard as a lead.
Eichner will reportedly be playing a close confidant of Paulson’s character.
All we really know so far about the season is that it will be set in the wake of last year’s presidential election, which the entire season will draw some level of inspiration from.
The seventh season of “American Horror Story” is filming this summer for premiere in the fall.
