As well as the original American Horror Story, McDermott has also appeared in Murder House, Asylum and last year’s Apocalypse).

Season 10 of AHS has already been commissioned despite creator Ryan Murphy having signed an exclusivity deal with Netflix for future original content.

The first episode of AHS: 1984 aired last month. In a review of the episode, NME’s Gary Ryan called the curtain raiser “a love letter to ’80s horror that puts the ‘camp’ in summer camp.”

“This is American Horror Story – which sometimes has a tendency to veer completely off the rails – so frankly, anything could happen.


One name who won’t be returning in AHS: 1984 is Jessica Lange, who revealed that she may also be done with TV completely.
