American Horror Story: 1984 creator Ryan Murphy breaks down in tears at finale episode amid fears show will be axed – The Sun

RYAN Murphy was deeply moved by the finale of American Horror Story: 1984.

The TV extraordinaire has steered the anthology series in all manner of wild directions and his latest instalment paid homage to the slasher flicks of the 80s.

Reflecting on this week’s finale, Murphy admitted that he was left sobbing at one of his own episodes for the first time.

He attributed the surge of emotion to his personal connection to a few members of the cast, as well as the heartbreaking father and son moment in the series’ conclusion.

Murphy claimed the ending was ultimately inspired by the actors themselves.

“I love that we were creating this American mythology about Camp Redwood that had its own inner life. I knew going into the season that I was very, very interested in working with John Carroll Lynch (Mr Jingles), who we worked with before, he was Twisty,” he explained.

“I wanted to make a leading part or bigger part for him. I knew that I wanted Finn (Wittrock) to be his son, and I knew that I wanted a happy ending, ironically,” he continued to Deadline.

“John says that when I pitch American Horror Story to him, I don’t know the ending. But I knew that was where we wanted to go to, that very ending.”

The series has included satanic possession, hauntings and murder aplenty, but it was the relationships that really struck a chord with Murphy.

“It’s the only American Horror Story ending that has made me cry. Something about that father-son thing always kills me,” he went on.

“I’m very nostalgic about Lily Rabe, seeing her in that part. I was really close to her mom, Jill Clayburgh, which is how Lily was introduced into my life.

“I’m also very close to Finn, and I always wanted to write a beefy, big part for John Carroll Lynch. It was a murderer’s row of talent that I was really close with and loved. Yeah, I loved it.”

The emotional reaction will no doubt make add to fans’ fears about the show coming to an end.

After all, Murphy previously admitted that the show had only been renewed for one more season and said going out on the tenth would ‘make sense’.

Perhaps this is why he found working with the cast so poignant – given how long they have stuck together and a potential end to the franchise next year.

Elsewhere in the world of AHS, viewers are convinced they’ve identified the theme for next year’s seasons after a series of space-themed clues.

American Horror Story: 1984 concludes tonight on FOX in the UK and is available to stream on NOW TV.
