If history is any indicator, the next season of American Horror Story will debut around late September in order to wrap before the end of the year holidays. Of course, if history were an indicator, Sarah Paulson would have a starring role in the upcoming, slasher-themed chapter, 1984.
Variety is reporting, however, that Paulson may be sitting this one out–the first time in the show’s entire 9-season run. The best we can hope for, it appears, is a cameo.
Variety has learned from sources that Paulson will not appear in a significant role in the FX anthology series’ upcoming ninth season, which is titled American Horror Story: 1984. Paulson has appeared in all eight of the preceding seasons of the hit series, usually in a major role. It is possible Paulson could appear in a cameo. To date, the least Paulson has appeared in any season of the show was in Season 1, in which she was featured in just three episodes. Fellow series mainstay Evan Peters had previously said he will not be in Season 9.
What do you think of the fact that Sarah Paulson will have a minor role, at best, in American Horror Story: 1984? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! You can also carry on the convo with me personally on Twitter @josh_millican.
