Watch the Full American Horror Story: 1984 Trailer

The anthology series is finally doing a slasher season

Sadie Gennis

Once you watch the official trailer for American Horror Story: 1984you'll be left wondering why the hell it took so long for the FX anthology to do a slasher season!

In the trailer, a group of friends and aerobics enthusiasts -- Cody Fern, Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, DeRon Horton, and Gus Kenworthy -- are driving to a summer camp where Fern's character has gotten a job when they accidentally hit a man with their car and try to abdicate all responsibility. (Classic!) After giving us this beloved slasher premise, the teaser leans even more into the genre's iconic tropes, revealing that there's a murderer on the loose, Mr. Jingles, who had been involved in a massacre at the summer camp years back. We bet the knife-wielding killer won't waste any time heading back to Camp Redwood!

In addition to the five stars listed above, the season will also feature Leslie Grossman, Angelica Ross, Matthew Morrison, Zach Villa, John Carroll Lynch, and Mitch Pileggi.

American Horror Story: 1984 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 10/9c on FX.
