Though details are few and far between, fans have shown their support for Emma Roberts and Gus Kenworthy to play a couple on the show. American Horror Story returns in 2019, but exactly when also remains a mystery.
American Horror Story Season 8 was Apocalypse and introduced fans to actor Cody Fenn who played the grown-up baby/antichrist, Michael Langdon. The Season was different from past seasons as it truly brought back past characters from other seasons.
While Season 9’s plot also remains shrouded in secrecy, fans have expressed hopes that it’s a continuance of a storyline from Apocalypse.
During the early portion of Season 8, it appeared that Sara Paulson who played Ms. Wilhemina Venable / Cordelia Goode was from the future. There’s plenty of talk from fans where they are hoping that Season 9 will be a futuristic/alien theme.
At this point, who will join the cast and what the season’s storyline will be is anyone’s guess. As Ryan Murphy is beginning to reveal information, stay tuned as he may continue to release details.
