Evan Peters returns to American Horror Story as Ryan Murphy reveals the full cast list for season 10, including Sarah Paulson, Macaulay Culkin, Kathy Bates and Lily Rabe.

American Horror Story season 10 is just around the corner and it looks like Ryan Murphy is teasing the cast and theme much earlier this year.

Posting on Instagram today (Feb 26), Murphy announced the cast list for the tenth season of the show – and it's good news for die hard fans of the series because Evan Peters is officially back in the cast!

Evan, who previously took time away from the series and did not appear in AHS: 1984, was listed alongside Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates (who also didn't appear in 1984), and original cast member Lily Rabe.

While Murphy didn't announce the theme or the title of AHS season 10, fans will now be speculating over what that clip of the ocean could mean. AHS: Cruise Ship? Anyone?

Previously, Murphy teased that the tenth season of the show would "reunite fan favourite actors" from the first 3 seasons. Speaking to Deadline, Murphy said: "We’re working on an idea for season 10 that I think people will love because it’s about reuniting fan-favourite actors to come back — because it might be our last season." (It's since been confirmed that AHS will run for another 3 seasons.)

Hinting further about who would be returning, Murphy teased: "I’ll just sort of say, the people who helped build this show into what it is, who believed in it from the beginning, have been contacted and are interested. So if you look at the iconography of the first three seasons, you can figure who I’ve gone to and who might be coming back."

Here's hoping even more AHS icons like Angela Bassett, Denis O'Hare, Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga and Cody Fern will also be announced to return. Don't hold your breath for an appearance from Jessica Lange though. She's already ruled that out.

American Horror Story season 10 is set to air in September 2020. A release date has not yet been confirmed.
