The Mac Attack is back, Jack!

Ryan Murphy, the showrunner and co-creator of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, has revealed the cast for the anthology-style horror series' tenth season, and you're not going to believe who's been invited to the party!

To begin, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will be returning to the show, two names that have been synonymous with the AHS brand ever since the fright fest's October 2011 debut. Paulson and Peters have appeared as castmembers for every season of AHS, save for the last one, dubbed American Horror Story: 1984. In addition to welcoming Paulson and Peters back to the fold, the forthcoming season will also see Kathy Bates, Billie Lourd, Finn Wittrock, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman and Angelica Ross returning for more bone-chilling tales of death, magic, and more disturbing imagery than an Extreme Level Spook House tourist trap.

Finally, another addition to the cast has been announced, and I am thrilled to report that the master of house traps himself, Macaulay Culkin, is set to join the fray, marking the Home Alone star's first series regular role on television.

Murphy unveiled today's casting announcements via his personal Instagram account:

Murphy's Instagram post features a video that depicts a calm ocean view, set to the doomsday track "Dead of Night" by Orville Peck. As monochrome waves lick against the shoreline, several names belonging to the Season 10 cast are displayed.

In the past, Culkin has made limited to guest appearances on shows the likes of DOLLFACE, ROBOT CHICKEN, and KINGS, though this will be The Pizza Underground band member's first full-blown role for a flagship series. As someone who checks in with AMERICAN HORROR STORY every couple of seasons, you can bet that I'll be tuning in for whatever the tenth season turns out to be. Culkin's is a personality that has always fascinated me, and the dude does creepy alongside the best I've ever seen. I'm curious to find out what his contribution to the series will be, and the only way to find out is to watch AMERICAN HORROR STORY when the show makes its milestone return.
