American Horror Story: 1984 goes campy - literally - in the cast unveiling for the upcoming season.

Series co-creator Ryan Murphy has celebrated the first day of production of the '80s slash movie-inspired season with a multi-part teaser that introduces all the main players - including one of his former Glee stars.

See if you can spot the Glee favourite looking very different while clicking through the teasers below:

If you didn't spot Matthew Morrison, you'd be forgiven since he's wearing a feathered '80s hairstyle and a classic porn stache. There was also an extreme close-up on his crotch, so we're a long way from McKinley High.

The teaser takes place in a creepy sleep-away camp (like many classic '80s horror movies), with American Horror Story: Apocalypse veterans Cody Fern (not looking at all like the Antichrist), Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts and Leslie Grossman all returning.

Infamous American Horror Story: Freak Show villain John Carroll Lynch is back too, only this time he's not playing the terrifying Twisty the Clown.

That said, his menacing march towards the camera in the teaser's final frames was pretty intimidating, all the same!

Newcomers this year include Dear White People's DeRon Horton, Shameless's Zach Villa and Pose star Angelica Ross, the latter whom is fresh off a heartbreaking twist in her former show.

Missing in action were original cast members Evan Peters and Sarah Paulson, both of whom will apparently be skipping a season for the first time ever.

The good news is that Peters recently told Digital Spy that he'll "never say never" to returning American Horror Story for a future season.
