Gus Kenworthy looks like every hot 80s jock bully fantasy, right down to the crop top and mullet.

The gay former Olympic skier is starring in the new series of American Horror Story.

The new trailer for the franchise’s upcoming season, American Horror Story: 1984, reveal a cast of characters that will likely not make it out alive.

And as it’s Ryan Murphy, expect a lot of gay sex and LGBTI themes.

Season 9, set to begin in September, is inspired by classic slasher films. It is also reportedly set at a summer camp, judging from the cast’s looks.

‘To celebrate the first day of filming the NINTH Season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY, here’s the official 1984 cast announcement along with some amazing 80s lewks. Enjoy!’ Murphy said.

Familiar faces will rejoin the cast, including Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd and Cody Fern.

Kenworthy will be playing Roberts’ boyfriend in the show.

He also said on Instagram: ‘Wow, I still can’t fucking believe this is happening!

‘I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this incredible cast!!!’

Angelica Ross, from Pose, is first trans actress in TV history to land two series regular roles at the same time

Angelica Ross, from Pose, will also star. This makes her the first trans actress in TV history to land two series regular roles at the same time.

There are some missing notable names, like Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, who have appeared in every chapter of the FX franchise so far.

Paulson may appear in a smaller role, according to Variety, but Peters is taking a break.

‘It’s just exhausting,’ Peters said.

‘It’s really mentally draining, and you don’t want to go to those places ever in your life.’

He also said: ‘And so, you have to go there for the scenes, and it ends up integrating it somehow into your life. You’re in traffic and you find yourself screaming and you’re like, “What the hell? This isn’t who I am.”‘

American Horror Story: 1984 premieres 18 September on FX.
