Ryan Murphy has unveiled the cast for American Horror Stories — a spin-off series based on the showrunner’s similarly-titled American Horror Story — largely drawing from talent featured in his past projects.

The cast — coined the “Fantastic Four” in Murphy’s announcement — includes Glee‘s Kevin McHale, Pose actor Dyllón Burnside, Riverdale star Charles Melton and The Prom‘s Nico Greetham. According to Deadline, Danny Trejo will also appear in the spin-off series.

“The Fantastic Four,” Murphy wrote under a mirror selfie taken by McHale and his co-stars on Instagram.

In addition to sourcing acting talent from previous works, Murphy has also enlisted Sarah Paulson (a frequent collaborator on works including Ratched and American Horror Story) to direct an unknown portion of the series, which the actress confirmed during a press panel for Ratched in 2020.

Late last year, Murphy took to Twitter to disclose preliminary information on what to expect from the soon-to-be-released show. “We are doing 16 one-hour standalone episodes delving into horror myths, legends, and lore,” he wrote. “Any of these episodes will feature AHS stars you know and love. More to follow.”

Additional details on the plot and cast are not yet available, but Chairman John Landgraf confirmed that the series will arrive on Hulu in July and conclude on Halloween during the May Upfronts FX.

In preparation for the premiere, watch the first teaser for the upcoming spin-off series.
