Evan Peters Confirms He will Not Be Returning For AHS Season 9

Evan Peters has appeared in all eight seasons of American Horror Story, although he announced that he will be sitting out for season nine.

The thirty-two year old actor broke the news while speaking to an Extra reporter at Wondercon over the past weekend.

In the very short clip that was posted on Twitter, the reporter had asked Evan if he was involved with the upcoming season.

He replied with, “No, I’m going to sit a season out,”

Evan has been in all previous seasons of the FX anthology, including Murder House, Asylum, Freak Show, Cult, playing creepy and often villainous characters.

The theme for the next season has yet to be announced.

Evan had previously admitted in a prior interview that constantly playing such dark roles was taking a toll on him.

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

“I’m going to take a break, regroup, decompress, get back in touch with what I feel like I want to do. Not that I didn’t want to do any of those roles — they’re exactly what I wanted to do. It was just zero to 100 instantaneously.”

The only confirmed cast for season nine is a Emma Roberts, who recently called off her engagement with Evan.

After seven years of an on and off relationship, Evan Peters and Emma Roberts have appeared to have broken up.

A source states, that Emma was the one to call off the engagement. Rumours swirled around when Roberts was seen kissing Garrett Hedlund during an outing. It appeared that the two had went out to dinner and later shared a kiss outside of the restaurant.

Roberts 28, and Evan, 32 met while filming ‘Adult World’ a 2013 Indie Film. They began dating in 2012, and confirmed their engagement in 2014 after Evan had popped the question during a holiday.

The pair had called off their engagement in 2015 but shortly after rekindled their relationship.

The young couple had hit a rough patch in July 2013, when Roberts was arrested in connection with domestic violence in Montreal, Canada

“It was an unfortunate incident and misunderstanding, Ms. Roberts was released after questioning and the couple is working together to move past it.” Evan and Roberts reps stated.

We wish the best for Evan and hope that his mental health gets better soon.
