This Is Who You’ll See in “American Horror Story: 1984”

When it comes to the cast of American Horror Story, one day you’re in, and the next day – you’re out!

Great Expectations

We didn’t know exactly what to expect going into American Horror Story: Apocalypse. However, at least we knew it would be a mash-up of the characters from Coven and Murder House. The next chapter, American Horror Story: 1984 has been even more shrouded in mystery in the lead-up to its release.

The show’s creators have revealed that Emma Roberts will return. What’s more, Olympian Gus Kenworthy will join the series playing her boyfriend. Also returning will be Apocalypse‘s Anti-Christ Cody Fern and Billie Lourd as well as Freak Show‘s Twisty the Clown John Carroll Lynch. New additions to the cast include Glee‘s Matthew Morrison, Pose’s Angelica Ross and DeRon Horton of Dear White People fame.

However, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who have both appeared in all eight of the show’s other seasons, will not be returning this time. Nor will Person We Love Billy Eichner, who had roles in both Cult and Apocalypse.

Great Expectations

Apparently this season’s title refers to famous late-20th century slasher film franchises like Halloween, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. However, conspiracy theorists have guessed that the specific choice of 1984 – which is also the title of George Orwell’s novel about a dark, dystopian future – may also offer some hints about what’s in store. We’ll start getting answers when the show premieres September 18. In the meantime, check out the cast sporting some deeply ’80s workout gear:
