Another year, another season of American Horror Story. Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series is heading into its ninth installment, and we finally have some deets as to what it will be about.
Thanks to a video posted to Murphy's Instagram, we now know the series is subtitled 1984. The new teaser trailer for the show reveals a woman running through the woods, seemingly pursued by a knife-wielding killer. It certainly looks like American Horror Story: 1984 will be an homage to the iconic slasher flicks of the '80s, such as Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, in which case: Bring. It. On.
If there’s one thing that American Horror Story loves, it’s building suspense — and by teasing out just enough details of the show's new theme, the series is doing exactly that. Another thing the show adores? Bringing together familiar American Horror Story favorites with brand-new faces.
This year, Murphy and company will once again unite already-established fan favorites with soon-to-be faves. (Cody Fern only joined the universe in season 8, and he's already beloved. Who doesn’t love the well-coiffed Antichrist?)
