Series creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the news with a shirtless photo.

The "American Horror Story" troupe just got a whole lot hotter, thanks to Olympian Gus Kenworthy.

The silver medalist has officially joined the cast of the FX series, as creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the news on Instagram on Wednesday morning.

"That special moment when you realize you have an Olympic medal AND will be playing Emma Roberts' boyfriend on 'American Horror Story' Season 9," Murphy captioned a shirtless photo of the athlete on social media.

While little is known about the upcoming season, FX CEO John Landgraf was asked for any developments at the network's Television Critics Association panel earlier this week. Sorry, but he didn't say much.

Keeping mum on the theme, Landgraf told Deadline that it's "up to Ryan Murphy" how long the show will continue. He added, "It's up to how long he wants to keep going and how many years he has inspired ideas."

Season 9 follows the crossover season that was "Apocalypse," which saw characters from "Murder House" and "Coven" returning to take on the anti-Christ.

The show has already been renewed for a 10th season, with the witches expected to return at some point. "The witches will be back," Murphy said in December. "Not next season, though, but we have something really fun planned."

The show is expected to return in the fall.
