Someone call Madison Montgomery, because we need her to cast a spell on Evan Peters and change his mind about returning for American Horror Story season nine.
The AHS vet and Ryan Murphy favorite recently confirmed to Extra (video of the interview here) that he won’t be returning to the beloved anthology series for the first time since the show began in 2011.
But it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise for fans. Recently, Peters sat down with GQ Style to talk about the exhaustion of AHS.
“I think it was a full-on burnout,” the Dark Phoenix actor said. “I’m going to take a break, regroup, decompress, get back in touch with what I feel like I want to do. Not that I didn’t want to do any of those roles—they’re exactly what I wanted to do. It was just zero to 100 instantaneously. I want to play music.” (Will the album feature a cameo from the Rubber Man? We’re so in.)
