Things are going to get spooky a little early this year thanks to the latest news released by FX. The network revealed the premiere date for Season Nine of the award winning anthology American Horror Story.
The installment of the drama horror series, titled American Horror Story: 1984 is set to return to our TV screens on Wednesday, September 18. Not much is known at this time about what this go-round will entail except that it will be heavily influenced by the ’80s slasher film genre (Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, etc…).
As far as who is returning for the latest round of horror, Emma Roberts has been confirmed as returning. Evan Peters, a staple in the series since Season One, on the other hand, will be sitting this one out.
Plot wise, details are scarce as the network has yet to divulge information on that front yet. No official trailer has been released at this time but FX did share back in April a quick little teaser.
As fan of ’80s slasher flicks, this will be quite the interesting take for AHS. The show does tend to do very well when it mixes camp and horror versus the more serious spins that it has had in the past with Asylum, Roanoke, and Cult. Here’s hoping that it continues the momentum it gained with Apocalypse as it turned out to be one of its strongest seasons so far.
