Pack your bags, kids... we're going to summer camp! The American Horror Story: 1984 cast has just been announced in a brand new teaser video and it looks amazing.

In a series of videos shared to Ryan Murphy's Instagram to celebrate the first day of filming season 9, the main cast all appear as their characters in a wooden cabin - all dressed head to toe in '80s clothing looking I-CON-IC.

The cast for this particular season also looks very different to what we've been treated to in the past few years. The younger cast members seem to be taking centre stage this year, with no Evan Peters or Sarah Paulson appearing in the video. Take a look at the full cast list below.
