American Horror Story: 1984 won’t be starring Sarah Paulson

We won’t be seeing much if any, of Sarah Paulson in the 9th season of American Horror Story (AHS).

A report from Variety says that the former series regular will not have a significant role in the upcoming season titled American Horror Story: 1984. Prior to this, Paulson appeared substantially in all eight seasons of the hit series. However, the possibility of a cameo from the actress might not be off the table.

She’s not the only series mainstay that we won’t be seeing in the upcoming AHS season. Evan Peters who has usually appeared in major roles throughout the series had previously announced that he won’t be in season 9.

AHS producer 20th Century Fox Television and Paulson’s representatives have not confirmed nor denied news of her departure from the show.

American Horror Story: 1984 is set for a September 18 premiere. Any details about the upcoming season’s plot have yet been revealed. The overall theme of season 9 is teased by creator Ryan Murphy as a 1980s slasher film.

“American Horror Story: 1984” is set to premiere on Sept. 18. Little is known of the plot or setting of this season, with Murphy releasing a teaser that was stylized like a 1980s slasher movie. Murphy had also previously announced that Emma Roberts would be appearing in the new season.

FX announced last year that it has renewed “American Horror Story” for a 10th season, despite Murphy exiting his deal with 20th Century Fox to make the move over to Netflix. The series remains one of FX’s most valuable and critically-acclaimed properties. Season 10 of the series is expected to air in 2020.
