Sarah Paulson Will Not Star In 'American Horror Story: 1984'

Sarah Paulson Not Starring in AHS 1984

Thus far, we know that the slasher-inspired ninth season of FX’s "American Horror Story" is titled "American Horror Story: 1984," will feature the return of Emma Roberts. We also know that Evan Peters, sadly, will be sitting this season out. And we've learned this evening that series mainstay Sarah Paulson also won't be returning.

Variety reports, "Paulson will not appear in a significant role in the FX anthology series’ upcoming ninth season." The site does note that she may appear in a cameo role.

Previously, Paulson has had a major role in every single season of "American Horror Story," so this news definitely comes as quite a surprise.

"AHS: 1984" will premiere on Wednesday, September 18th.
