Spoilers ahead for the Season 10 premiere of American Horror Story, subtitled Double Feature.
American Horror Story has made its long-awaited return to FX for its tenth season, subtitled Double Feature. It also featured the return of Evan Peters as the second-billed star behind only the venerable Sarah Paulson, but he wasn't just credited as an actor. Peters also received a "producer" credit, and fans were quick to react to the exciting development.
American Horror Story: Double Feature brought Evan Peters back after he didn't appear in the ninth season, called 1984. That was the first season of AHS that Peters missed, so nearly three years had passed since Evan Peters had last played a role (or roles) in a season of AHS. So, his return for Double Feature would have been exciting for fans no matter what, but the producer credit resulted in viewers taking to social media to celebrate.
Evan Peters' credit as a producer took fans on social media by surprise, to the point that caps lock was really an ideal way to express the excitement. He was a successful actor before American Horror Story, but the FX series was a big break for him when he appeared in Murder House back in 2011. In the years since, in addition to playing new roles season after season on AHS, he also landed roles in projects like X-Men: Apocalypse, Mare of Easttown, and yes, WandaVision. Now, he is also a producer!
What better way to comment on warm feelings for Evan Peters becoming an American Horror Story producer than with a gif of Evan Peters from American Horror Story? There is no shortage of options to choose from, and this person went for a gif of Peters as the unforgettable James Patrick March of AHS: Hotel. Splendid indeed!
Considering that the American Horror Story: Double Feature premiere got off to a very creepy start well before the reveal that the brilliant artists of the area are all basically vampires, it says something about Evan Peters' popularity that fans were so excited despite the ominous aura. Then again, for any fan watching AHS in its tenth season, keeping calm and carrying on in the face of creepiness may be pretty easy.
The characters of American Horror Story: Double Feature may well end up in tears thanks to the traumas that they go through and/or inflict by the time the season is over, but probably not because of anything happy like this fan is suggesting on social media! Plus, for any viewers who were happy for Evan Peters, the credits had more good news for another star: Sarah Paulson.
Sarah Paulson is top-billed in Double Feature just ahead of Evan Peters, and she too missed AHS: 1984 as the first season of AHS in which she didn't appear. She came back to receive an executive producer credit as well as credit for performing in front of the camera, so it's good news all around for the two biggest names in AHS. Season 10 got off to a bloody start for the characters, but a pretty great beginning for Peters and Paulson from a producing perspective!
American Horror Story: Double Feature is going to be an unconventional season of television even by AHS standards, so be sure to tune in to FX on Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET to see what happens next for all the characters.
