Variety reports Paulson won't appear in a significant role on Season 9 of the FX anthology series. "Paulson has appeared in all eight of the preceding seasons of the hit series, usually in a major role. It is possible Paulson could appear in a cameo," says Variety's Joe Otterson. "To date, the least Paulson has appeared in any season of the show was in Season 1, in which she was featured in just three episodes. Fellow series mainstay Evan Peters had previously said he will not be in Season 9 as well." Paulson has earned five Emmy nominations on American Horror Story. She's currently filming the FX limited series Mrs. America, and she'll reunite with Ryan Murphy for Nurse Ratched prequel series Ratched for Netflix. American Horror Story: 1984 premieres Sept. 18. UPDATE: Deadline reports Paulson will have a small role in American Horror Story: 1984.
