American Horror Story will be back on FX for three more seasons following its recent renewal. The series will bring back a major fan-favorite to take center stage in Season 10. Sarah Paulson is returning to the horror anthology! A welcome return because, as fans will recall, Paulson had to miss the latest installment in the hit series -- AHS: 1984, a.k.a. Season 9.

That one season off is not the start of a new trend because Sarah Paulson will return to American Horror Story in Season 10! She will not be doing so in a one-off guest stint either. The actress’s next horror venture will see her take on a significant role. Regarding her AHS future, Paulson told The Wrap:

I can confirm that I will be in next season. I have no idea what it will be… But I’m not coming back as a guest part, I will be a central character.

The super busy actress is a fan-favorite, and news of her return has left fans thrilled, and undoubtedly curious. Sarah Paulson did not have much she could reveal about her return other than it is happening. Her last season was AHS: Apocalypse, which also featured the reappearance of fellow American Horror Story veteran Jessica Lange. Like Paulson, Lange did not appear in AHS: 1984.

As AHS heads into its milestone tenth season, news of Sarah Paulson’s upcoming return has been met with great enthusiasm by fans on social media. Here is how one fan celebrated:
