Back in April, we found out that the official theme for this season of American Horror Story is '80s slasher films...and every ~die-hard~ horror movie fan lost their mind with excitement.
While there's been little in the news about it since then, just this week we found out that — for the first time in nine seasons — both Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters would NOT be starring in the series, which left a lot of questions about who WOULD be appearing this time around.
And today, we finally got our answer in the form of a video revealing the full cast, which was posted on creator Ryan Murphy's Instagram. There are some SURPRISES, y'all:
On the "returning cast members" side of things, we have Emma Roberts in full retro fashion:
Mr. Antichrist himself, Cody Fern, really workin' that sweatband:
Billie Lourd making her mom, Carrie Fisher, proud with that middle finger:
And a quick glimpse of John Carroll Lynch — who starred in Season 4 as Twisty the clown:
Joining the show for the first time is Glee alum, Matthew Morrison making a ~big~ first impression:
Alongside the incredible Angelica Ross, star of Pose:
Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy — who will appear in the show as Roberts' boyfriend:
Zach Villa pulling out every bad boy look in the book:
And finally, Dear White People's DeRon Horton, really rockin' those '80s shorts:
The whole setup is already giving MAJOR Friday the 13th and Sleepaway Camp vibes, so be sure to catch all the screamin' when American Horror Story: 1984 premieres Sept. 18 on FX!
