If you've binged your way through "Stranger Things" Season 3, Ryan Murphy may have your 80s nostalgia craving covered.

It's the first day filming the upcoming "American Horror Story: 1984" and co-creator Murphy is celebrating by sharing teaser videos for the season, revealing the cast in an Instagram post. Set to Dan Hartman's hit "I Can Dream About You" the videos feature the cast of the new season of the FX anthology series dressed up in their 80s-inspired outfits.

Familiar faces include Emma Roberts, Billie Lourd, Cody Fern and Leslie Grossman. As previously reported, out Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy is joining the cast. Also featured in the videos is "Glee" star Matthew Morrison and Angelica Ross, who just had a very emotional episode on "Pose," and more.

Taking to Instagram, Kenworthy commented about joining the show, writing, "Wow, I still can't fucking believe this is happening! I couldn't be more excited to be a part of this incredible cast!!!"

"AHS: 1984" seems to pay homage to 80s slasher films, like "Friday the 13th," which is set in a summer camp similar to the one in Murphy's post. It was previously reported both "AHS" mainstays Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters will not be on the new season, marking the first time they won't be on the show.

The new season is set to air on Sept. 18. Check out the video below.
