See the New Teaser Trailer for ‘American Horror Story: 1984’

The new teaser trailer is finally here for the highly-anticipated season of American Horror Story: 1984. It appears to be a retro version of the slasher films of the past, and it will certainly be a hit with fans everywhere. Cast members such as Emma Roberts and Matthew Morrison weren’t anywhere to be found in this particular teaser, however. We do get to see a bunch of teenagers getting ready to relax and party it up at Camp Redwood.

Camp Redwood doesn’t appear to be very safe

In the opening scene, we see a few cars rolling past, clearly based in a later time. They are drinking and having a great time on their way to the camp. Suddenly, the camera cuts to them entering Camp Redwood. The back of the sign reads “Beware” as the group drives by. They clearly don’t notice it though.

It appears they have a straggler hanging onto one of the car’s tail pipes. We see a masked figure holding onto the bottom of the truck, and wielding a large knife. We then see this same masked killer spring up out of the water and attack an unsuspecting woman sunbathing in a canoe.

Which characters will be returning this season?

Unfortunately, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, and Evan Peters will all be sitting this season out of American Horror Story. Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Leslie Grossman, and John Carroll Lynch will all be back for the next installment in the anthology series.

There will be plenty of new faces this season, including former Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy, who is playing the boyfriend of Emma Robert’s character. Matthew Morrison, from Glee, will also be onboard this season, and wearing tight gym shorts in the teaser.

Angelica Ross, from Pose, will also be a part of the upcoming season. She shared her excitement at the new role on her social media saying, “I am ELATED to make history as the first trans actor to secure 2 series regular roles, leaping from #PoseFX to #AHS1984!”

Fans are upset at the absence of ‘AHS’ alumni

Many fans are understandably distraught that Sarah Paulson and other AHS alumni won’t be involved this season. Some believe Paulson, as well as Lange and Peters, make the show everything it is.

Fans took to social media to complain about the absence of Sarah Paulson and others. “Sarah Paulson carried season 7 of American Horror Story on her back where is her Oscar,” wrote one angry fan via Twitter. Another user tweeted, “There is no American Horror Story without Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Jessica Lange.”
