Another American Horror Story veteran is checking into season five's Hotel. Sarah Paulson, who has appeared in every season of the FX anthology series, will return for the fifth season, American Horror Story: Hotel. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to share the news.
"Sarah Paulson is checking into Hotel. And this season, she's the baddest bad girl of them all. #AHSSeason5," he tweeted.
Paulson also took to Twitter to express her excitement. "I [am] so f--keeeen HAPPY to be able to finally tell you: IM BAAAAAACCK!! #AHSHotel," she tweeted.
Paulson is also starring in Murphy's other FX series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. In that show she'll play Marcia Clark opposite Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson. John Travolta, Connie Britton and David Schwimmer also star.
American Horror Story: Hotel will be the first season without Jessica Lange. Lady Gaga will star in an unspecificed role opposite Paulson, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Chloë Sevigny and Wes Bentley. American Horror Story veteran Kathy Bates is returning to the franchise to play the head of the hotel. Filming is scheduled to begin in Los Angeles this summer—the last two seasons were filmed in New Orleans—with an October premiere date.
Murphy has a Fox series in the works as well. AHS veteran Emma Roberts will star opposite Jamie Lee Curtis in the horror-comedy series Scream Queens. The cast also includes Abigail Breslin, Lea Michele, Nick Jonas and Ariana Grande.
American Horror Story: Hotel will be 13 episodes.
