If there is one horror series that you need to dedicate yourself to, being a die-hard horror fan, it is FX’s ‘American Horror Story‘. The series has had a successful eight-season run and neither the network nor the creators of the show are done with it yet. It is one of the scariest show on television right now. The ratings for every season might go up and down but its popularity just keeps on increasing. It is an anthology series and the themes are always topical.
The show has been created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and continues to be one of the highest rated shows for the network. It has received 28 nominations at the Emmys, garnering wins for Jessica Lange, James Cromwell and Kathy Bates. It has also been a continuous presence at the Golden Globes.
American Horror Story 1984 Cast: Who is in it?
Even though every season of ‘American Horror Story’ is an independent story in itself with different characters, a bunch of actors have become a regular presence in the show. Most notable of them are Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters. As of season eight, they have been a part of every instalment. However, for the ninth season, Peters has confirmed that he won’t be returning. But that doesn’t mean that the door is closed for him in the tenth season as well.
Jessica Lange is another actress who has been a major presence in the series. After a hiatus of three seasons, she returned to the series in the eighth season. Kathy Bates and Emma Roberts have also been a constant part of the series since the third season, not appearing for just a season or two. Over the various seasons, the series has also been home to actors like Connie Britton, Taissa Farmiga, Denis O’Hare, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Angela Bassett and Cheyenne Jackson.
Paulson has appeared on every season of the show so far, and there is no reason why we shouldn’t see her in season 9 as well. Roberts has also been confirmed for the next season, however, she won’t be reprising the role of Madison Montgomery, for now. Gus Kenworthy has also joined the cast. No other confirmations have been made yet, but we can surely expect other regulars to show up.
