American Horror Stories Adds Riverdale and Glee Vets for New Season

FX on Hulu's upcoming American Horror Story spinoff, the similarly-named American Horror Stories has added four new cast members. On Wednesday, series executive producer Ryan Murphy took to Instagram to share a photo of Glee alum Kevin McHale, Pose's Dyllón Burnside, Riverdale's Charles Melton, and The Prom's Nico Greetham captioning the photo "The Fantastic Four" and tagging it with "#AHStories". No additional information was shared about their roles in the series.

American Horror Stories was first announced last year and will feature one-hour, contained episodes focusing on various myths and legends. The series is set to premiere on FX on Hulu in July. The series will also see American Horror Story favorite Sarah Paulson direct one of the spinoff's episodes. A short teaser for the series aired during the Golden Globes broadcast in March while a poster for the series was released last fall.

"It's the AHS spin off," Murphy explained of the poster in a follow-up Tweet at the time. "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. More to follow..."

"It has been an extraordinary time for FX over these past three months with the launch of FX on Hulu, which has transformed our business.
