The official trailer for American Horror Story: 1984 has arrived and it just emanates those glorious ‘80s vibes we’ve all been missing in modern horror. We’ve had a number of vague teasers over the past couple weeks, showing off every manner of slasher trope you could think of, but today’s trailer release marks the first time we are seeing the characters and what the new season is all about.
Taking center stage is Mr. Jingles, a killer of the “escaped from a nearby mental hospital” variety, while the ‘80s haircuts and outfits come in at a close second. First, give the above trailer a watch and then read on for more details regarding what we know about the upcoming season so far.
This new story of American Horror Story is intended to be a throwback to ‘80s slasher horror, set in that time period with camp counselors and all. It follows those working and in attendance at Camp Redwood, the site of past horrific murders, not to mention a serial killer named Mr. Jingles, who escaped from a nearby psychiatric facility. This has all the makings of a classic slasher, but don’t be surprised if we receive some Ryan Murphy twists along the way.
The new season 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.
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.
