"American Horror Story: 1984" Just Revealed The Official Cast And It'll Slay Ya

Looks like Jason Voorhees has some new campground competition.

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:
