Fans of American Horror Story get excited as the release date for the ninth series, AHS: 1984, has been revealed.

The popular FX series, which will take inspiration from 80s slasher films like Nightmare on Elm Street, is set to return to screens on Wednesday, 18th September on both sides of the Atlantic.

In April, a trailer for the upcoming season was released, featuring a woman running from a masked killer wielding a large knife in the woods and had been described as having an 80s slasher movie aesthetic.

Emma Roberts and Gus Kenworthy are confirmed cast members for the upcoming season, although series regular Evan Peters will not appear in the forthcoming series.

And even though the Pose actor isn't a part of American Horror Story: 1984 he hasn't ruled out a potential appearance later down the line.

In an interview with Digital Spy, Evans was asked if he'd return to the popular series, and the 32-year-old said he wouldn't write it off.

He said: "Yeah, absolutely, never say never. I just...Yeah, we'll see what happens." Sounds promising to us.

It is also uncertain whether Sarah Paulson - who has been in every single season - will be back for AHS: 1984 as nothing has been said to her yet.

Speaking to Syfy in April, she said: "I think... all I can say is I know the least about this season upcoming that I've known about any season. I don't even know... yeah, that's all I can say.

"Usually, I have more information at this point, and I'm bugging Ryan [Murphy] with questions. Right now, I don't have a lot and yeah, I'm so busy with Ratched, it's hard for me to think about anything beyond that."

Alongside the AHS news, FX confirmed the Sons of Anarchy spin-off Mayans MC will premiere its second season on Tuesday, September 3rd.

While It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia will return to FXX for season 14 on Wednesday, 25th September at 10pm ET.

American Horror Story will return on 18th September on FOX and NOW TV in the UK
