Here is the video where Evan Peters told me he will not be returning to American Horror Story. This is the first time in nine seasons he will not be part of the show! #AHS pic.twitter.com/Eb30bXzMFR— crldsnts (@CandidlyCarlo) April 2, 2019
The announcement comes a year after he claimed that he was feeling "exhausted" by sinister roles. "It's just exhausting. It's really mentally draining, and you don't want to go to those places ever in your life. And so you have to go there for the scenes, and it ends up integrating it somehow into your life. You're in traffic and you find yourself screaming and you're like, What the hell? This isn't who I am," he said in an interview with GQ magazine.
"I fight really hard to combat that and make sure that I'm watching comedies and chilling with friends and watching movies," he added.
In the last season of AHS, titled Apocalypse, Peters featured in a double role. A hair stylist in one part and an evil, scientific genius in the other. Apocalypse also tied up with Season 1: Murder House and Season 3: Coven.
Peters will reprise his role as Quicksilver in the upcoming Dark Phoenix film, headlined by Sophie Turner. As for AHS Season 9, the only confirmed cast includes of Gus Kenworthy and Emma Roberts.
