American Horror Story: 1984 Sets Premiere Date

Find out when you can catch the terrifying next chapter

Sadie Gennis

American Horror Storywill kick off its terrifying new chapter this September. FX announced on Monday that the ninth season, titled 1984, will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 10/9c.

Despite rumors that 1984 would be a sequel to last season, Apocalypse, it appears as though the installment will pay tribute to '80s slasher movies, such as Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. The cast for the season is almost completely unknown at this time, but for the first time ever Evan Peters will not appear. Other than that, all we really know character-wise so far is that Olympic medalist Gus Kenworthy will play Emma Roberts' boyfriend. Although, we're hoping creator Ryan Murphy enlists former Scream Queensstar Jamie Lee Curtis to appear in 1984 as an epic piece of stunt casting for slasher fans.

Here's also to hoping that American Horror Story staples Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Adina Porter, and Lily Rabe will also appear. And you know what, we most definitely wouldn't say no to more Billy Eichner, Leslie Grossman, Cody Fern, or Billy Porter either.

American Horror Story: 1984 will premiere Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 10/9c on FX. Previous seasons are available to stream on FX Now, Amazon, Hulu, and Netflix.
