Watch: Lady Gaga Brings New Life to "American Horror Story"

And one of the fall TV season's biggest mysteries has been solved. (We think!)

Heading into the premiere of American Horror Story on Wednesday night, almost nothing was known about season six, including its theme and most of the cast, with only Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates confirmed to return. And after Wednesday night, fans of the FX hit series got some answers, including the theme (My Roanoke Nightmare, which was presented as a true-crime docuseries!), as well as the cast. (Welcome to the crazy, People v. O.J. Simpson star Cuba Gooding Jr.!)

At the end of the premiere, the regular cast was seemingly revealed in the closing credits. Here's the list of AHS' season six's stars, in the order they were listed on-screen:
