Sarah Paulson has been a constant member of the horror anthology series, American Horror Story for eight constant seasons. It has almost been impossible to imagine the show without Sarah starring in it, isn't it?
However, the fans are in for a shock now as the actress will not be seen much in the 9th season of the series. According to a report in Variety, Paulson will not appear in a significant role in the FX anthology series’ upcoming ninth season, which is titled “American Horror Story: 1984.” Paulson has appeared in all eight of the preceding seasons of the hit series, usually in a major role. It is possible Paulson could appear in a cameo. To date, the least Paulson has appeared in any season of the show was in Season 1, in which she was featured in just three episodes. Fellow series mainstay Evan Peters had previously said he will not be in Season 9.
Paulson has received widespread acclaim for her work on “AHS,” picking up five Emmy nominations for her various roles on the show. She won the Emmy for best actress in a limited series for her role in the first season of “American Crime Story,” which was executive produced by “AHS” mastermind, Ryan Murphy.
Paulson is currently filming the upcoming FX series “Mrs. America,” about the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. She will continue working with Murphy on the upcoming Netflix series “Ratched,” which tells the origin story of the notorious Nurse Ratched from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
“American Horror Story: 1984” is set to premiere on Sept. 18. Little is known of the plot or setting of this season, with Murphy releasing a teaser that was stylized like a 1980s slasher movie. Murphy had also previously announced that Emma Roberts would be appearing in the new season.
