Lena Dunham is joining the seventh season of “American Horror Story.”
The Ryan Murphy hit series “American Horror Story” adds a controversial name to its election year based season.

Given this season’s premise, Lena Dunham may be a perfect fit for casting. She has been very outspoken against Donald Trump and has said things that are controversial and offensive to those on both sides of the political system. With a show that has its foundations in stirring controversy and exhibiting the obscure, Dunham should easily find a place among the cast.
With the final season of HBO’s “Girls” having ended, this is a nice transition for Lena Dunham. It’s a genre that she has not explored before and could be an opportunity for her to shine. Either way, her name stirs controversy and will easily build hype for the show when it premieres on FX in September 2017.
