The title (and theme) of American Horror Story season nine has been announced

We are SO here for this.

Ryan Murphy has announced what American Horror season 9 will be called - and its theme - in a new trailer.

There hasn't been too much information released about the highly-anticipated upcoming season of the horror anthology.

But the producer confirmed in an Instagram post on Wednesday that the season would be called American Horror Story: 1984. 

And we're getting some major Friday the 13th and Scream vibes from the brief teaser.

The footage, set to Billie Eilish's Six Feet Under, shows a young woman running through the forest as she tries to hide from masked stalker.

She finds somewhere safe and hides in a cabin - although the masked assailant stabs through the door.

So, like we said, it's not a whole lot of information. There's not even a release date yet.

But it's definitely enough that we're counting down the days (however many there are) until it all kicks off.

The news comes shortly after Evan Peters confirmed that he would not be taking part in season nine.

Earlier this month, he said he was going to "sit a season out" when he was asked about his level of involvement in season nine.

His response was shared on Twitter by a journalist for US entertainment site, Extra. 

This is the first time that Peters will not star in the series since its debut back in 2011.

Since then, he has played a school shooter, a cult leader, and a mass murderer. His roles have required him to shoot scenes that involve gruesome killings, sexualised torture, and mental deterioration.
