Here are more details about the American Horror Story: 1984 release date for when the show will come back on television this fall.
American Horror Story: 1984 concept, cast
Over the course of the past eight years, there have been a number of different concepts for the horror anthology series. The first season was based in California and called Murder House. Other seasons focused on Roanoke Colony and a hotel of horrors. Just last season, they went with a near-future theme with Apocalypse.
For American Horror Story: 1984 they’ve yet to reveal a full plot synopsis. However, it’s said to be inspired by cult classic horror films from the 1980s including A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. A “Walkman” teaser for the new season was also revealed. It’s a scene that definitely pays homage to serial slasher Jason Vorhees and his Crystal Lake summer camp murders.
As far as the cast for this ninth season of the show, actress Emma Roberts is set to return. Also returning are Sarah Paulson, Cody Fern, Leslie Grossman, Billie Lourd, and John Carroll Lynch.
