The gods of television have smiled upon us today with the news that Billy Eichner, New York City’s favorite person (well, except for this woman), has joined the cast of American Horror Story Season 7. Best known for his incredible work in Parks & Recreation, Hulu’s Difficult People, and the endlessly watchable Billy on the Street, Eichner joins series regulars Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters and will be featured often in a recurring role.

Given that this is American Horror Story, not much information is (or will be) known about his character, but Deadline reports that Eichner will be playing a close confidant of Paulson’s character and will likely appear in six or seven episodes of the season.

Not much is known about American Horror Story‘s seventh season beyond the allegations that it will be set in the aftermath of the recent presidential election, but regardless of the theme, with Billy Eichner joining the cast, you can bet we’ll be tuning in.
