One of the most terrifying villains in American Horror Story‘s vault will be returning for its upcoming seventh season. AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy posted an image, above, of a comic book starring season 4‘s Twisty the Clown.

Twisty, played by John Carroll Lynch, was a deformed clown who murdered various characters on Freak Show and eventually became somewhat of a mentor/inspiration for similarly loony killer Dandy (Finn Wittrock).

While it’s unknown how Twisty will be involved in the latest AHS, it’s clear his rampage has become something of legend.

AHS 7, which is somehow tied to the 2016 election, is currently in production with Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Billie Lourd, Billy Eichner, Cheyenne Jackson, Alison Pill, Colton Haynes, and Adina Howard.
