ICYMI | FX’s AMERICAN HORROR STORY: 1984 Gets Premiere Date

Television’s most anticipated shows of the fall are clamoring for audience attention and FX’s hit gothic anthology American Horror Story: 1984 is slashing its way onto the primetime schedule!

The latest installment of super-producer Ryan Murphy’s hit gothic terror anthology American Horror Story: 1984 has been given a premiere date! The series will enter into its ninth season on FX on Wednesday, Sept 18 @ 10pm EST and will feature returning ensemble cast members including fan-favorite Emma Roberts. Last year’s end of days themed Apocalypse spotlighted the return of Roberts bitchy witch Madison Montgomery from Season 3’s  Coven and further connected the AHS mythology first introduced in 2011’s Horror House.

The theme selected for Season 9 of American Horror Story: 1984 is taking inspiration from the 80’s  slasher film phenomenon in the vein of such horror classics like the Friday the 13th franchise. Early promotional materials have introduced what appears to be a masked knife-wielding serial killer hunting his hapless prey, a nondescript female victim — and when she enters a dark, wood cabin, a large knife slashes through the door (Yikes)! Although very little else has been revealed of the new season AHS: 1984 or its cast, Olympian Gus Kenworthy is signed to play Roberts’ boyfriend.

This Season | AMERICAN HORROR STORY Brings the “Apocalypse”

It’s the end of the world! Time for a new season of television’s most daringly disturbing hit when American Horror Story returns for Season 8 it will (possibly) tie-up every loose end over the series mythology!

With every passing season of the hit anthology series American Horror Story the narrative has shifted and repurposed to address a particular social anxiety or deep ingrained fear. That was on display front and center in last season’s “Cult” which took the nation’s post-election woes and bared them naked into perhaps one of the series’ most intricately complex and frightening arcs yet, inspiring a splattering of Emmy-nominations and several other accolades. With the newest installment, it appears that all hell has broken loose.

Series creator Ryan Murphy has expertly taken to social networking to tease the overall theme and direction that Season 8 would be taking, and with the release of the Official Trailer, audiences get there first glimpse at the dark times ahead on American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

The trailer suggests that following the events of Season 7’s “Cult” the world has been torn asunder and it truly has heralded the “end of days”. Most of the series ensemble players will be returning, including some favorites from the show’s inaugural introduction “Murder House”. In fact “Apocalypse” may illustrate best the links of convergence that unite all these anthology tales of terror!

The new season of American Horror Story: Apocalypse returns to FX on Wed, Sept. 12.
