Showrunner Ryan Murphy revealed the theme for the upcoming season of his anthology series on Instagram along with a short teaser this morning. American Horror Story: 1984 will premiere this Fall.
The new season appears to be an homage to classic slasher movies of the 80s, complete with a masked killer and what looks like his own creepy summer camp deep in the woods.
The theme isn’t exactly new to the showrunner, whose Scream Queens series parodied the slasher drama with a comedic twist for two seasons before being cancelled.
Murphy has been notorious for holding details for each new season of the popular FX anthology series close to his chest, but this season has been particularly secretive. In fact, we’ve had very little other than the casting announcement that Gus Kenworthy would be playing the boyfriend of Emma Roberts and that Evan Peters announced that he would not be a part of the new season.
Hopefully, with the release of the teaser, Murphy will be ready to tell us more, and iHorror will keep you posted on all the latest details as they become available. Check out Murphy’s post below and get ready for American Horror Story: 1984 this fall!
