Report: Sarah Paulson Will Not Star in New 'American Horror Story' Season

Tuesday July 9, 2019

Despite appearing on every single season, Sarah Paulson will not star in the upcoming ninth season of "American Horror Story," according to a report from Variety.

Subtitled "AHS: 1984," there is a chance Paulson appear in a significantly smaller role such as a cameo. She's starred in every single season, playing various characters, since the FX anthology started in 2011.

Paulson has been nominated a number of times for her roles on "AHS" but won an Emmy for Best Actress in a Limited Series for "American Crime Story," co-created by Ryan Murphy, who also co-created "AHS."

Variety's report comes not long after "AHS" mainstay Evan Peters revealed he would also not be in "AHS: 1984" — marking the first time he won't be on the series as well. Nevertheless, "AHS" regular Emma Roberts, who first appeared on "AHS: Coven" is set to return. Out Olympian Gus Kenworthy will also be on the new season.

Murphy, who left Fox for Netflix in a huge overall deal last year, shared a teaser for the season, which evokes slasher films from the 80s.

Paulson is currently filming the new FX series "Mrs. America," alongside Cate Blanchette. She'll also reunite with Murphy for the Netflix series "Nurse Ratched," which will be based on the "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" character.

"AHS: 1984" debuts on Sept. 18. Check out the teaser below.
