The ninth installment of Ryan Murphy's anthology series, American Horror Story, just got a premiere date from FX. The new season, called 1984, will debut on September 18. *Cue the blood-curdling screams.*
The news comes fresh off the release of the first teaser for the season, which series creator Murphy unveiled in April. Seemingly riffing off '80s slasher-style films like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, American Horror Story: 1984 will return in less than three months.
Roberts's former boyfriend, Evan Peters, who has been a part of the anthology series since season one, revealed that he won’t be a part of this upcoming season.
FX's premiere date announcement was accompanied by a collage of images that are seriously hyping us up for the new AHS: One seems to be the new logo for the season, and one is a still from the teaser trailer that we mentioned earlier.
Just us, or is it weird that we already know this much ahead of the ninth installment?! Murphy is notoriously tight-lipped about his anthology, so these may all just be bread crumbs leading us down a false trail of AHS-fueled terror.
One thing we know for sure: September 18 can't come soon enough.
