Evan Peters Will Skip ‘American Horror Story’ Season 9

Peters has appeared in every season of FX’s smash hit anthology series — until now.

Since 2011, Adele has provided the music for all your worst breakups, Prince William and Kate Middleton have kept the royals relevant, and  has been the man, myth, and legend behind TV’s greatest horror series. Now, one of those things is about to change, and we are not thrilled.

During a red carpet interview at WonderCon 2019, Peters told Extra he was “going to sit a season [of AHS] out.” Season 9 will be the first season without the actor, which makes his casual announcement that much more jarring.

Fair warning: The video below is disturbing (what’s AHS without its leading lad?).

On Thursday, April 11, series creator Ryan Murphy revealed Season 9’s title: AHS: 1984. The upcoming chapter will be set in the mid-’80s, when slasher films and gory horror was all the rage.

In the teaser below, a terrified woman flees a deranged killer. When she reaches a house and locks herself in, he plunges a knife through the door inches away from her head. The season will pay homage to all the best things about slasher flicks: the thrill, the suspense, and the cheese.
