Colton Haynes is cast in season 7 of American Horror Story

Both Haynes and AHS creator Ryan Murphy shared the news yesterday (June 20) with images that found Haynes bleeding from the mouth (sure!).

Colton Haynes will star Billie Lourd ( Star Wars, Screem Queens ), Leslie Grossman ( Gray's Anatomy, Scandal, Popular ) and Billy Eichner ( New Girl, Friends from College ). Murphy kept his message short and sweet, simply writing, "Welcome to American Horror Story, Colton Haynes". Stay tuned for more info as it comes! Like Lourd, Haynes previously starred on another series co-created by Murphy and Brad Falchuk, "Scream Queens".

American Horror Story Season 7 will premiere in September. Unfortunately, while Lady Gaga has expressed her interest in joining the upcoming season, her pre-scheduled tour and film project will keep her busy for the rest of the year leaving no time for American Horror Story 7.

Apart from a few Instagram posts and teasing interviews, Ryan Murphy remains elusive about the seventh season. The first episode will take place on election night.

The executive producer announced Haynes' casting on Instagram on Tuesday with a portrait shot of the actor with smeared red lipstick. "Which in itself was a horror story, so it's like a horror story upon a horror story". We'll just have to wait and see.
