Evan Peters and Kathy Bates will not appear on the show this season. In an interview with GQ, Peters talked about taking a break from AHS, explaining that taking on sinister or emotional roles takes a toll on his mental health, especially with shows like AHS and Pose. He revealed, “It’s been all a massive stretch for me and really difficult to do. It’s hurting my soul and Evan as a person. There’s this massive amount of rage that’s been called upon from me, and the emotional stuff that’s been called on me for Pose has been heartbreaking, and I’m sick. I don’t feel good.” Peters’ ex Emma Roberts has chosen to return to the series. Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy will play the boyfriend Emma Roberts’ character this season.
