Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Orlando is reaching its 31st annual haunted house event, and many signs spookily pointed toward The Weeknd as a theme on the haunted house map. He finally confirmed it and we knew it all along!

The GRAMMY award winner has been known to shock fans in his music videos, as he uses prosthetics and costumes to represent his storytelling. Two of his videos are restricted from YouTube because of the content that some claim to be "highly disturbing."

He posted to his Instagram page a photo of the promotional poster. His theme is "After Hours Nightmare," named after his most recent album, After Hours.

On March 16, a Halloween Horror Nights fandom account predicted he might be their newest partner. They created a map speculating what the haunted house themes would be, and the star's name was on it.

That same day, he retweeted that post, which included "horror" images from his music video.

It wasn't clear at the time what exactly this meant, but he followed up on April 3 with another indication he might be contributing to the theme park's event.

After mentioning the restriction of his music videos, he said, "I know Halloween horror nights loved them though."

When you head to the "Too Late" and "In Your Eyes" music videos on YouTube, a message warns that the content may be inappropriate for some users.

"I always wanted my own Halloween Horror Nights haunted house, as Halloween has always been significant to my music, so this is a total dream come to life," he told Entertainment Weekly.

Though we won't know what's inside until opening night, the trailer for his attraction is officially out now.

Other confirmed houses are Halloween, The Horrors of Blumhouse and Universal Monsters: Legends Collide. Halloween Horror Nights runs from September 2 to October 31.
