Sarah Paulson Has Left 'American Horror Story' And Will Reportedly Not Appear In 'AHS: 1984'

It's the end of an era for Ryan Murphy's 'American Horror Story' which has already seen iconic stars Jessica Lange and Evan Peters depart from the show.
After only just recovering from the heartbreaking news that Peters will no longer grace our screens on the hit show (because let's face it we never truly recovered from Lange's exit), reports emerged earlier this week confirming that Sarah Paulson has also departed from the series, leaving fans (including myself) scrambling around the internet looking for hope that their favourite show isn't falling to pieces as it appears. Luckily for all of us, FX has already renewed the show for a tenth season ahead of season 9's release.
If there has ever been one thing to look forward to for the next season of 'American Horror Story', it's what performance actress Sarah Paulson would pull out of the bag this time - from playing conjoined twins, the head witch in charge to her epic junkie Sally McKenna from 'AHS: Hotel'. Taking the responsibility as a key star since 2011, Paulson has taken on an arsenal of roles for the cult show, securing herself as a fan favourite along with Evan Peters.
It's safe to say that fans are not taking the news well, and they've not been holding back their emotions on Twitter in the slightest:
While the news is definitely tragic to say the least, there is still the possibility of Paulson having a small role in the season - and it's also been confirmed that the star will be directing an episode for upcoming instalment '1984'.
Evan Peters confirmed his departure back in April, saying: 'I'm going to sit a season out,' due to how exhausted he was feeling about all of the roles he'd been playing recently. It is still unconfirmed whether Peters will return for season 10.
Emma Roberts will return for '1984', with Gus Kenworthy confirmed to play her boyfriend.
'American Horror Story: 1984' will premiere this fall on FX.
