American Horror Story: 1984 Adds Pose Star Angelica Ross

The American Horror Story family officially has a new member. In light of series mainstay Sarah Paulson taking Evan Peters' lead and sticking to the sidelines this time around (for the most part), there is plenty of room for new stars to shine and that's where Angelica Ross comes in.
Following her role in Pose, another project with close ties to Ryan Murphy, the AHS creator took to Instagram to formally welcome the actress to the family, so to speak. Check out the post in full below.

Last night’s episode of Pose required us all to dig deep — @janetmock as writer, myself as writer and director, but most of all our incredible leading ladies. I must applaud @angelicaross for her tour de force of a performance as Candy Abundance Ferocity. It has been a gift to watch her blossom as a true star and undeniable talent. Though she will always be our Candy, and our show suffers this incredible loss, I am elated that the world will get much more Angelica. She is joining the American Horror Story family in another unforgettable role. Congrats Angelica for making history, leaping from #PoseFX to #AHS1984. Welcome to the #AHS family!
Apart from the fact that series mainstays Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will be stepping back for the time being, the only other information we have learned so far with respect to casting was the confirmation of Emma Roberts and Olympian Gus Kenworthy, with unconfirmed earlier reports indicating that Billy Eichner was in talks to make a return. Paulson may make a cameo or play a small part in the new season, but she is not returning for any kind of leading role this time around.
American Horror Story: 1984 will premiere on September 18th, 2019 on FX. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on the upcoming season and series as a whole.
