New American Horror Story: 1984 Teaser Welcomes You to Camp Redwood
Prepare for a bloody good time during the summer of '84.
By Chris Morse
Welcome to Camp Redwood. So says the latest teaser trailer for American Horror Story: 1984, series creator Ryan Murphy's take on the beloved slasher subgenre of horror. As is appropriate for such a theme, we are introduced to what we assume will be the new season's mainstay location, and one we expect will see plenty of bloodshed. Good luck leaving alive.
The new season of American Horror Story will feature returning alums Cody Fern, Billie Lourd, and Emma Roberts. Joining them are Olympian Gus Kenworthy, Matthew Morrison (Glee), Angelica Ross (Pose), DeRon Horton (Dear White People), and Zach Villa. While she won’t have a lead part in this season, you can expect Sarah Paulson to appear at some point, albeit in a reduced role or possibly even just a cameo. Series mainstay Evan Peters previously said he is sitting out this season.
Very little is known regarding the story for this season, but we do know that it’s intended to be a callback of sorts to ‘80s slasher horror. Don't be shocked if plenty of classic genre tropes make it into this season, especially as it pertains to Friday the 13th and other horror staples.
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.
