Similar to their previous teasers, this one doesn't feature any of the cast of the upcoming season but does have some very Friday the 13th feelings.
American Horror Story is headed to the camp from hell in the upcoming ninth season of the series subtitled 1984. In the latest teaser, fans are reminded why there might just be safety in numbers at Camp Redwood. Either, this year is going to pay a tribute to cult classic comedies or maybe, someone made an unintentionally hilarious trailer. It tackles the slasher-horror genre of 80s slashers, which takes place at a summer camp and revolves around a masked killer terrorizing a group of camp counselors and, presumably, campers themselves.
Just after a just over a month ahead of the season premiere, FX shared the new teaser which sees a pair of newcomers arriving at the camp and while checking into their cabin and selecting bunks, but when one heads off on a walk with an attractive girl at the camp. What seems like is that the man has a pretty grim fate. Similar to their previous teasers, this one doesn't feature any of the cast of the upcoming season but does have some very Friday the 13th feelings. But this time around, without the killer coming up from the water to attack someone in the boat.

This year, the two most popular faces of American Horror Story: Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters won't be a part of this season. Each of the actors has appeared in every season of the series to date but they have opted out from this one. This decision had been explained by FX boss John Landgraf. He said, "Remember, he did something really interesting, which is he decided to weave multiple different cycles through the eight seasons, and so it was the biggest cast ever. You had actors that were playing 2-3 different characters. You had to bring back all the cast from prior seasons. It was a monster in terms of the size of the cast, cost of that cast. You can't do that all the time."

He added, "Part of what he needed to do, which is what he did, was clean the slate, start over."
