American Horror Story Season 9 (AHS 1984)

Ryan Murphy dropped the title for this fall’s American Horror Story‘s season 9, which will be known as AHS 1984.

It’s a throwback to ’80s slasher movies as evident in the clip that Murphy posted on social showing a teenage girl fleeing a dark-Jason-like guy wielding a knife. The year 1984 is when Friday the 13th was billed as its “Final Chapter”. There were also such genre faves as Nightmare on Elm Street and Children of the Corn which hit the screen that year.


Emma Roberts is coming back to season 9 and her boyfriend will be played by Olympic silver medalist freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy.


The return of Sarah Paulson hasn’t been announced yet. Together with Evan Peters they’ve appeared in every single season of AHS, however, the actor says he’s sitting this season out.
The FX series first aired in the fall of 2011 with Murder House season, with Asylum (in 2012) in season 2, then Coven (2013), Freak Show (2014), Hotel (2015), Roanoke (2016), Cult(2017) and Apocalypse (2018).


American Horror Story returns this fall.

Just a few more days. Impressive that this series has made it to season 9. Its direction has a way of weighing on the mind more than virtually any other current show, a trait that I have yet to decide is good or bad in this case.

Looks good. Some years have been better than others. My favorite were the Witches and Freaks. But I love Emma Roberts ' Looks like a play on Friday the 13th.

I watched the first episode last night. I think it will be a good season. They did the title sequence like it was a 80s TV series.

The first few episodes have been decent if you realize the campiness is intentional and over the top.

I'm convinced that this show can tackle any horror subject and still entertain, even a throwback subject as done to death (pun intended) as '80s slashers. I owe it mostly to the series' vibrant cast and the fact that Ryan Murphy was always good with keen attention to detail in weaving intricate plots.

Is there some context for this question? The only Trevor Kirchner I find on IMDb is a sitcom director and producer.

This last episode felt very much like a season finale that wrapped up most of the storylines. Yet there's another new episode next week. Weird.

It did feel like a final' but it open up a 2 new story lines. One at the camp and another back in the city. Favorite part so far was Jingles putting pretty boy in the oven.

Context - Trevor Kirchner, the character played by Matthew Morrison, has been gone for awhile as others in his "situation" have returned.

Ah, I feel dumb. I didn't get that it's his character name. Thanks.

No worries, I am curious as to where he is at...I assume he will return but wonder why it has taken so long? This season is losing steam quickly, IMO.

Well it was pretty good. Lots of plots I did not see coming. They wrap it up pretty good. It was a fun twist to Friday the 13th.

I think it kind of ended with a whimper. I wish they had further explored the tragic nature of Margaret being influenced by Mr. Jingles' mother into becoming a manipulative serial killer. Perhaps something for a future season tie-in.

American Horror Story renewed through season 13


Great news for the Ryan Murphy coven — American Horror Story has officially been renewed three more times, securing the shelf life of FX’s hit anthology series until at least season 13.
The show, which finished its ’80s-slasher-themed ninth run with American Horror Story: 1984 in 2019, was previously greenlit for season 10, set to premiere this year. The reveal of its newly prolonged life, as if by some seven wonders, was formally revealed during the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Thursday.





FX Networks Chairman John Landgraf called AHS creators Murphy and Brad Falchuk “the undisputed masters of horror TV, having created the anthological limited series with American Horror Story and sustaining its success for nearly a decade as FX’s highest-rated series.”


He continued, “AHS has showcased a wealth of award-winning actors since day one and we appreciate the contributions of everyone, including Ryan, Brad, and fellow executive producers Tim Minear, James Wong, Alexis Martin Woodall, and Bradley Buecker, the writers, directors, cast and crew for each new, unforgettable installment of American Horror Story.”

Previous seasons have taken us inside a haunted house, an insane asylum, a witch’s coven, a cult, a reality show in literal development Hell, and the end times. The theme for this year’s season 10 has yet to be unmasked, though we know from Murphy himself that the witches from season 3’s Coven will return at least one more time in the future after their reprised appearance in season 8’s Apocalypse.





1984 brought back a number of AHS veterans, including Billie Lourde, Emma Roberts, Leslie Grossman, Finn Wittrock, and Cody Fern, as well as some new anthology players like Pose‘s Angelica Ross and Olympian Gus Kenworthy. Sarah Paulson, the ultimate AHS veteran, sat this one out. Hopefully not for too long.

13 seems a fitting end to the series. Looking forward to the craziness they come up with.

Great ' Love all the actors they use. 1984 was well done. My favorite so far was Coven and The Freaks. Look forward.
