The next season for American Horror Story continues to prove that it's going to be a nostalgic blast from the past.

The star-studded cast has its standard recurring actors, like Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, and John Carroll Lynch, with a few new faces as well. For the first time, Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson will not be joining the cast in their usual top-billed roles. 

The trailer for the September 18 release was filled to the brim with references to classic '80s slasher movies, from Halloween to I Know What You Did Last Summer. And fans of the old-school horror films are ready to spot every one. 

While the trailer is so scary, as per usual, it is also filled with campy '80s tropes. 

The summer camp vibes are strong in this trailer, from the cabin make-out sessions to telling horror stories around the campfire. Emma Roberts is leading the cast of camp counselors on the lookout for an escaped prisoner named Mr. Jingles. Roberts' character met the rest of the counselors at an aerobics class, naturally. 

Fans are already noting so many references to classic horror films. 

"Anyone else noticed the Halloween reference??" one person asked on Twitter. Another responded, "Yess, and a lil bit of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a dash of I Know What You Did Last Summer, and a pinch of Friday the 13th, with a lil speck of Dead of Summer." 

It appears that the group of soon-to-be counselors experiences some kind of hit-and-run, which potentially leads to some of the killings, just like in IKWYDLS.

Like the rest of AHS, this season's posters are downright chilling. 

A fiery pierced marshmallow heads straight for a camper's eyeball in this chill-inducing graphic. All of the show's posters have scary images that set the tone for the upcoming season, and this one is no different. 

One fan theorized in the comments, "I really believe it's not only about a regular camp. I think it has to do something with the known '1984' book or something like that …. "

Nostalgic movie lovers are in for a treat with this season. 

One person on Twitter noted, "As [an] 80s campy horror geek, this looks soooooooooo gooooooooood." From the costumes to the references, fans of that era will not be disappointed. Based on the reaction from shows like Stranger Things, television fanatics are here for the '80s. 

From the trailer, it would appear that the killer is a knife-wielding escaped prisoner named Mr. Jingles. 

Another series poster shows a camper near death. "Lovely night for a hike. #AHS1984," the show's Instagram account captioned the image. There will surely be plenty of classic horror-movie moments in the series, like when campers take late-night walks in the forest that end in their demise. 

Someone start taking bets on how much '80s lingo there will be heard. 

"When I’m watching 1984, I’m definitely going to count the amount of times someone says 'totally'," someone on Twitter shared. The AHS account wrote back, "Totally." So clearly there's going to be plenty of that nostalgic vocabulary making a comeback. 

The possibly penultimate season will drop on September 18. 

"Camp Redwood has an open door policy. #AHS1984 premieres Sept 18 on @fxnetworks," the show's Instagram account announced. The series is renewed for one more season after this ninth one, but it could possibly continue on after that. FX Networks CEO John Landgraf told Deadline that he didn't know whether another season would air, and that would be up to Ryan Murphy's desire to continue telling these stories.
