Anthology series American Horror Story is known to cast big names, and now that Lena Dunham wrapped up the final season of her HBO hit Girls, the star’s the perfect fit for a role on the FX show.
On Wednesday (July 19) AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to announce that Dunham would be joining the cast of the show’s upcoming seventh season.
Murphy tweeted, “Thrilled that my talented friend Lena Dunham is joining the American Horror Story Family. Always wanted to work together, and now we r!”

Little details are known about Dunham’s role, but she joins show veterans Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, as well as newcomers Billie Lourd and Billy Eichner, for the new season, said to be inspired by the 2016 presidential election.
Though much of the forthcoming season has been kept under wraps, Murphy has been teasing hints to the show’s storyline on social media, and is set to announce the title of the season today (July 20).
