Colton Haynes just announced he’ll be joining the seventh season of American Horror Story.

To break the news, the out actor posted a photograph to Instagram with lipstick (or blood!?) smeared all over his handsome mug.

Haynes previously worked with Ryan Murphy on the now-canned series Scream Queens.


Haynes is joining the likes of gay comedian Billy Eichner and Billie Lourd, the former Scream Queens star  (and daughter of the late Carrie Fisher.)

Sarah Paulson and Cheyenne Jackson are also returning this season.

According to Murphy, the upcoming season of AHS has a politically-charged theme.

On a recent episode of Watch What Happens, he told Andy Cohen, “Well, I don’t have a title but the season that we begin shooting in June will be about the election that we just went through so I think that will be exciting for a lot of people.”

When Cohen asked if there’d be a character based on Trump, Murphy replied: “Ahhhhhh, maybe.”
