American Horror Story is losing one of its MVPs: Sarah Paulson will not star in Season 9 a.k.a. AHS: 1984, according to Variety.

While it's possible she'll make a cameo, it's also possible that this is the end of an era for the actress, who made her AHS debut with a three-episode role in the show's first season way back in 2011.
