Ryan Murphy teased that "something wicked" is coming in "American Horror Story" Season 10 as he shared the first look at Macaulay Culkin in the upcoming installment of the FX series.

A new set photo from "American Horror Story" Season 10 shared by Murphy on Instagram shows Culkin and Leslie Grossman posing at a beach while wearing fur. "Something wicked this way comes," he captioned the picture posted Wednesday.

Culkin's Season 10 casting was announced last year, and his fans are already looking forward to what he will bring to "AHS" and what role he will be playing.

"Macaulay Culkin is on the next season of American Horror Story & I’m so excited to see how he does omggg," wrote a fan of the "Home Alone" star.

Another wrote, "I didn't know Macaulay Culkin in American Horror Story was something I wanted. Now I know."

Last year, Murphy shared with E! News how he got Culkin on board.

"You know, it came about just because it's how I always do things [Laughs] where I have always loved Macaulay Culkin's work. I loved everything that he's done, I love the stuff he did in 'Home Alone,' I also loved the sort of the older, more recent stuff that he did. And he hasn't worked in a while," the series creator said.

"So, I have this very, very great insane part. And I asked to speak to him on the phone and he said okay," he added.

Murphy revealed that Culkin immediately signed on for "AHS" Season 10 after he described the character he had in mind for the actor to play.

"[When] I cast, I never let people read things, usually. I said, 'Okay, here's the pitch.' And I told them the character and I told him he has crazy, erotic sex with Kathy Bates and does other things. And he paused and he goes, 'This sounds like the role I was born to play.' So, he signed up right then and there," said Murphy.

The shoot had come to a standstill in 2020 owing to the coronavirus pandemic. Back then, Murphy "was waiting for the crisis to be over because all those scripts are written and I'm excited for him to play that part. I'm excited for him to be in my world because I think...I'm gonna want to do a lot of things with him if he wants to work, because I think he's fascinating and interesting, and I think he has a soul."

"There's both a lightness and a darkness with Macaulay Culkin that I'm attracted to," he added.

"American Horror Story" Season 10 will also star Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Lily Rabe, Angelica Ross and Finn Wittrock.
