Get ready see Cody Fern, Gus Kenworthy, Billie Lourd and Emma Roberts like you’ve never seen them before. Ryan Murphy took to Instagram to officially reveal the American Horror Story: 1984 cast in all their 1980s glory.
There’s Olympian Kenworthy with a crop top and short shorts, Lourd with some excellent teased bleach-blonde hair, Leslie Grossman with the biggest glasses you’ve ever seen (and a Farrah Fawcett ‘do), Fern in his finest aerobics wear, Matthew Morrison with quite the mustache (and something in his pants!), Pose star Angelica Ross looking mighty fine with a stethoscope, Roberts looking very prim and proper, DeRon Horton looking very sporty and Zach Villa looking quite a bit creepy.
The first teaser, posted by Murphy to Instagram, is set in what looks like the bunks of a cabin. And is that John Carroll Lynch back in a creepy role? He’s wearing what looks like the same outfit as the killer in the teaser released earlier in 2019.
See the full character teaser below. Which is your favorite look?

In February, Murphy announced Olympian Gus Kenworthy would be part of the cast. He was announced as boyfriend to Emma Roberts‘ character.
No Evan Peters?
Evan Peters, who has appeared in all eight previous seasons of the Emmy-winning show, said he was going to miss this season.
“No, I’m going to sit a season out,” Peters said. He previously told GQ about how rough the show can be. “It’s just exhausting. It’s really mentally draining, and you don’t want to go to those places ever in your life,” he told the magazine.
