With FX setting a fall/autumn debut for the upcoming season of American Horror Story: 1984 I thought it was time, to do what we do every year, and start a what we know so far post. And, of course, like every year I will update it regularly with news and tidbits and as much info as I spy on the web (or Ryan Murphy’s Instagram feed).
The 9th series will debut on American TV on September 18th at 10pm on FX -us Brits will have to wait but will probably get it the week after. I’ll update the date (and everything else) as soon as I know for sure.
The Cast So Far
- Angelica Ross (Pose)
- Emma Roberts
- Gus Kenworthy (playing Emma Roberts’ boyfriend)
- Cody Fern
- Billie Lourd
Stylized like 1980’s slasher movies, American Horror Story: 1984 promises some bad clothing decisions and a lot of sharp pointy things. The 1980s gave us slasher movies: Nightmare on Elm Street, Children of the Corn, and Friday the 13th, Halloween II, My Bloody Valentine, Sleepaway Camp, amongst others. Maybe we’re gonna need a checklist to tick off the ones that show up.
Even Peters will be taking a break from this season of American Horror Story. It’s also not a sequel season and isn’t continuing on from Apocolypse. Could there be aliens? We don’t know yet but the 1980s did give us rather a lot of Alien movies, like Alien for example and The Thing. And of course, in October of 1984, there was the release of the movie adaptation of George Orwell’s classic 1984.
