American Horror Story Season 9 is called 1984.
Ryan Murphy is throwing it back to 1984 and paying homage to all those ’80s horror movies including A Nightmare on Elm Street, Children of the Corn and Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter.
The creator of the acclaimed horror franchise revealed the name of the next installment of AHS on Wednesday. Muphy’s Instagram post featured a short video of a teenage girl fleeing a big man with an even bigger knife chasing her in true ‘80s slasher films fashion.
Confirmed to return for Season 9 is Emma Roberts. She’ll star opposite Olympian Gus Kenworthy, as his on-screen on the run from slasher guy couple. Evan Peters recently announced that he won’t be back for season 9. Sarah Paulson has yet to give details about her involvement, but we think it’s safe to assume she’s on board.
American Horror Story returns in the this fall.
