Sarah Paulson Won't Have A Major Role In American Horror Story 1984

What we do know for sure, though, is that the actress is very much in demand.

What is American Horror Story without Sarah Paulson? That includes reporter Lana Winters, witch Cordelia Foxx, and even conjoined twins Bette and Dot Tattler.


During her 8 seasons on the show, Paulson racked up five Emmy nominations without a win-including that time she quite literally acted with two heads-eventually snagging a statue for her role in American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson, also produced by Murphy.

American Horror Story: 1984 will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 10/9c on FX. However, sources say a cameo from the actress is possible. Paulson has played a major role in each season of American Horror Story, apart from Season 1, in which she was played a recurring character who appeared in only three episodes. She's been a part of every single season of the FX franchise to date so it makes sense that the trend would continue. In an interview with GQ, Evan Peters explained that working on Pose and American Horror Story took a toll on his mental health.


"The witches will be back", the producer said previous year, before clarifying "Not next season, but we have something really fun planned". "I don't feel good". AHS: Apocalypse, which was a crossover season between AHS: Murder House and AHS: Coven, featured appearances by many series veterans and a few newcomers including Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Billie Lourd, Dylan McDermott, Taissa Farmiga, Joan Collins, Adina Porter, Connie Britton, Billy Porter, Billy Eichner, Lily Rabe, Stevie Nicks and Angela Bassett. That includes Cody Fern, who played Michael Langdon in American Horror Story: Apocalypse.

Variety first reported Paulson will not star on "AHS: 1984". She found success starring alongside Sandra Bullock for the trendy thriller movie, Birdbox.


Paulson's fellow AHS mainstay Evan Peters, another fan-favorite who has remained at the forefront of the series since its beginning in 2011, will not appear on the new season.
