Ryan Murphy, creator of American Horror Story and Scream Queens, recently announced the focus of season 9 of American Horror Story on social media. AHS: 1984 will be an homage to classic slasher films from the 1980s, like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and Halloween.
The teaser dropped by Murphy shows a very 80s looking teenager running through the woods and into a very Camp Crystal Lake-esque summer camp. A large, knife-wielding assailant follows closely behind her as the teaser comes to a close. While the trailer doesn’t show any of the familiar faces from American Horror Story’s past, it has been officially announced that Emma Roberts will be returning to star in the upcoming season, and Gus Kenworthy, Olympic silver medalist, will be playing her boyfriend.
Within the past few weeks, it was announced that Evan Peters, who has been present in every season of American Horror Story so far, will not be making an appearance in season 9. Sarah Paulson, who, similarly to Peters, has appeared in the past eight seasons, has yet to confirm or deny whether or not she will play a part in 1984.
According to the teaser trailer, AHS: 1984 is scheduled to release this fall on FX. Are you looking forward to the new season? Or have you been burned by American Horror Story in the past?
