Have you ever loved a television show so much that you stick with it through season after season? Even when it goes off the rails, introduces bonkers plotlines, and seemingly has no end in sight, you're still in. At some point, you've gotten so attached to the show that it's no longer about enjoying it - it's about seeing it through. You will watch season after season if just to prove everyone wrong who says you should give up.
The Walking Dead fans, I'm looking at you.
The same sentiment could be applied to American Horror Story fans, but the good thing about the latter show is that it's an anthology series. Each season takes place in a different place or time period and revolves around a new set of characters. So, even if you weren't a fan of say, American Horror Story: Freak Show, you could jump back on the bandwagon with a later season.
Another cool thing about Ryan Murphy's FX horror show is that the same cast pretty much returns for each season, with a few differences here and there. Longtime AHS star Evan Peters, for instance, has been on each season since the beginning. But he recently revealed that he would not be appearing in the next season of the show, and fans were shocked.
This is Evan Peters
via: Getty ImagesThe 32-year-old is an American actor who has been in the industry since the early 2000s. His resume is quite versatile for being so young.
Like any hot young celeb, he's also known for her who he's been romantically attached to.
via: Getty ImagesPeters had been in a long-term, on-again-off-again relationship with actress Emma Roberts. They began dating in 2012, were engaged twice, but in 2019 it was reported that the pair had apparently called it quits.
The couple made headlines in 2013 when the police were called on them for a loud, heated dispute they were having while in Montreal, Canada.

Peters may be best known for his roles on 'American Horror Story' and in the 'X-Men' franchise, but he got his start quite young.
via: Getty ImagesLook how little he is here! Hardly the 32-year-old who is so good at playing creepy characters...
Peters has flourished on television shows but has been in many films as well.
via: Getty ImagesHe portrays Quicksilver in X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men Apocalypse, and Dark Phoenix.
He was also in the 2018 drama, 'American Animals.'
via: Getty ImagesThe biographical crime drama is based on the true story of the U.S. library heist that took place at Transylvania University in Kentucky back in 2004. The film was critically acclaimed, earning Peters a British Independent Film Award nomination.
An early start...
via: Getty ImagesPeters made his acting debut in 2004, in the film Clipping Adam. He also appeared in the 2004 comedy, Sleepover, starring Alexa Vega and a young Brie Larson. Yes, this movie really exists and yes, it is early 2000s goodness.
Peters’ early resume includes guest spots on shows you would never associate him with.
via: Getty ImagesHe did a stint on Disney’s Phil of the Future, and had a part on One Tree Hill.
In 2010, he was cast in the dark comedy action flick, 'Kick-Ass,' in the supporting role of Todd.But it wasn’t until 2011 that most of us started to know who Peters was. We can all thank a tiny little show named American Horror Story for that.
AHS first premiered back in 2011, created by 'Glee' team Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.

'AHS: Murder House'
via: Getty ImagesThe first season of AHS starred Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, and Evan Peters. It was called American Horror Story: Murder House and centers around a family that moves into a haunted house.
It was terrifying.Seriously, do not watch this first season unless you enjoy being so scared you can barely go to sleep. I speak strictly from experience.
Peters is a staple of AHS.
via: Getty ImagesWhile AHS, in general, boasts continually stellar casts that include stars like Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett, there are a few actors who appear in just about every single season.
Who has appeared on AHS the most?
via: Getty ImagesSarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy and Peters himself have appeared the most frequently on the anthology horror series. Their characters differ greatly, and quite often it’s hard to recognize them from season to season.
Peters, in particular, is a chameleon when it comes to acting in this show.
via: Getty ImagesHe’s become such a frequent and known AHS fixture that it’s hard to imagine the show without him.
AHS no more?
Here is the video where Evan Peters told me he will not be returning to American Horror Story. This is the first ti… https://t.co/2dRE3A0sAG— Carlo De Santis (@Carlo De Santis)1554234374.0
This will be the first time in 9 seasons that he won’t appear in the show.
via: Getty ImagesIt’s truly the end of an era. What will the show be like, sans Peters playing one of the main characters?
Will we still enjoy it?
via: Getty ImagesAre AHS fans prepared for this? He's played so many important characters in the series.
But he's been on the show since 2011.
via: Getty ImagesPerhaps it is time for a break. Filming a show like AHS can't be easy or light on hours, so the break is probably welcome.
Besides, he has a few projects in-the-works, according to his IMDb.
via: Getty ImagesBut to AHS fans, he will always be an integral part of the show. Let's take a look back at all of the characters he's played, shall we?
