Macaulay Culkin Has The Best Reaction To American Horror Story Season 10 Casting
| Last updated
But it seems the actor may need reminding of his huge new role, having jokingly tweeted to ask why he was trending.
I just woke up and saw I was trending. Can someone explain what's going on? Did I die again??

Someone else joked back: "Something to do with American Horror Story."
Another commented: "CANT WAIT! Congratulations."
Murphy, who has been one of the main creative forces behind the FX horror series alongside co-creator Brad Falchuk, shared a post on Instagram revealing Culkin would be joining the cast - which will also see the return of stars like Kathy Bates, Finn Wittrock, Billie Lourd, Lily Rabe, Adina Porter, Leslie Grossman and Angelica Ross.
Franchise regulars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will be back, too, despite sitting out the last season.
Speaking to Deadline last year, Murphy said he and his team were working on a strong idea for season 10, fearing it could be their last.
Murphy said: "It's about reuniting fan-favourite actors to come back - because it might be our last season."
"It's the last season we have contracted.
"So, I've been quietly reaching out to various people. Some people I haven't reached out to yet because I was like do I have a role. So far, everybody I reached out to said 'Yes', so that's been great."
But thankfully, the show was recently rewarded with a three-season renewal to take it up to at least 13 seasons.
John Landgraf, the chairman of FX Networks and FX Productions, announced the news in a statement earlier this year, saying: "Ryan and Brad are the undisputed masters of horror TV, having created the anthological limited series with American Horror Story and sustaining its success for nearly a decade as FX's highest-rated series,
"We are grateful to them and Dana Walden and our studio partners for committing to another three years.
"AHS has showcased a wealth of award-winning actors since day one and we appreciate the contributions of everyone, including Ryan, Brad and fellow executive producers Tim Minear, James Wong, Alexis Martin Woodall and Bradley Buecker, the writers, directors, cast and crew for each new, unforgettable instalment of American Horror Story."
American Horror Story season 10 will air later on this year.
