The 9th season of the Horror Anthology American Horror Story returns Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 10 pm E.T. with A.H.S. 1984. The reference to “1984” has nothing to do with Orwell’s Dystopian fiction, but more a reference to the year the slasher film really became a force at the box office.
1984 kicked off both the Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street franchises. Based on the trailer below, it looks like A.H.S. 1984 is going to revolve around this classic horror genre.

Watching FX on Hulu Live TV
Hulu is another way you can stream History. Previously Hulu was known for their vast on-demand streaming library. Recently, they have added a Hulu Live TV service for $44.99 a month that offers Live History Online Streaming. Hulu Live TV is one of the best live TV streaming services available. It includes the following features:
- The basic package comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR storage. (Upgrades available)

Past Seasons of AHS on Hulu’s Streaming Library
The easiest way to catch up on older seasons of AHS is through Hulu. There you will find seasons 1-7 of “American Horror Story” available. Season 8 will likely drop soon.
If you’d like to check out older seasons of AHS you can just get the streaming library without the Live TV option using this link. After the free trial, the normal price is $5.99 per month. This plan includes “limited commercials.” The other option costs subscribers $11.99 per month and provides users with an “ad-free” experience. For more details check out our Hulu review.
