Ryan Murphy Reveals Opening Sequence for American Horror Story: 1984
It’s only right for the new opening to feel very, very ‘80s.
By Chris Morse
With less than a week to go until the premiere of American Horror Story: 1984, series creator Ryan Murphy felt it was a good time to share the all-new, ‘80s-inspired opening sequence for the upcoming new season. He took to Instagram with the big reveal, but note that the full video is split into two pieces, so you can scroll over to the second part of the post to watch the tail end of it. Check it out below!

I am so excited to share with you the new AMERICAN HORROR STORY title sequence by our longtime collaborator Kyle Cooper and our new friend Corey Vega, who ignited this concept with an original “fan" cut he posted on Twitter after the 1984 season was announced. I liked it so much, I decided to bring him on board to work together with Kyle as they evolved the concept into something major. Congratulations Corey! 1980s horror never looked so good. @broadway1228
American Horror Story: 1984 Gets New Posters, Teaser Videos
Here's the latest preview round-up to get you prepared for the return of Ryan Murphy's horror anthology series.
This new season 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 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.
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.
