The first trailer for AHS: 1984 is finally here.
After you experience the official first trailer for American Horror Story: 1984 you’ll be left wondering why it took the FX anthology series so long to do a slasher-themed season.
The trailer is full of loads of 80’s nostalgia; a group of friends and aerobics enthusiasts — Cody Fern, Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, DeRon Horton, and Gus Kenworthy — head to a summer camp where Fern’s character landed a job.
On the way, they accidentally plow a man over with their car and desperately avoid taking responsibility. After delivering an iconic slasher-story starter, the trailer leans even more into the genre’s iconic tropes; there’s a murderer, Mr. Jingles, on the loose. It’s explained that Mr. Jingles was linked to a butchering at the summer camp years ago, and it seems like he’s free from the insane asylum and back in business.
In addition to the five players listed above, the season also features Frances Conroy, Leslie Grossman, Angelica Ross, Matthew Morrison, Zach Villa, John Carroll Lynch, and Mitch Pileggi.
American Horror Story: 1984 premieres Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 10/9c on FX.
