There was no way American Horror Story would bring in clowns without the biggest of all, but this Freak Show return gets pretty Twisty. See the scariest clown out there make his Cult return for Season 7 with a brand-new motion comic teasing next week’s premiere.

Seeing as American Horror Story: Cult will pull back on the supernatural, there wasn’t much place for an undead clown from the ‘50s beyond the pages of fiction. As such, FX released a motion comic version of a Twisty book that features into the clown-themed season, but will we ever see John Carroll Lynch in the flesh (so to speak)?

Elsewhere of Season 7, now set for a September 5 premiere, Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd has also joined the cast, along with Lena Dunham, Allison Pill, Colton Haynes, Billy Eichner and Popular alum Leslie Grossman. In addition to returning stars Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Emma Roberts, Frances Conroy, Mare Winningham, Cheyenne Jackson and Adina Porter, Season 7 might feature the return of several other characters from Freak Show.

Season 7 will premiere next week, so watch the trailer below and stay tuned for the latest on American Horror Story: Cult.
