Emma Roberts has joined the cast of "American Horror Story: Coven." According to TVLine, the "Unfabulous" star will play a "self-involved party girl" named Madison.

Roberts, who recently filmed a Fox pilot titled "Dellirium," is currently dating "American Horror Story" star Evan Peters. Peters will return for "Coven" alongside familiar "AHS" faces Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Taissa Farmiga.

Along with Roberts, new cast members for "Coven" include Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe.

Though we don't know much about "American Horror Story: Coven," we do know it'll be witch centric, as the title indicates, and parts of the season will be set in New Orleans.

"It's a really cool story that we've been talking about for a couple of years, and this seemed like the year to do it," co-creator Ryan Murphy said on panel about "American Horror Story."

"American Horror Story: Coven" premieres in October on FX.
