Next to nothing is known about the fifth season of American Horror Story, titled Hotel, but I can’t say I am looking forward to it after the terrible Freaks Show.
However, the first piece of news hit the Web tonight as the Queen of all things weird, Lady Gaga, has announced she has joined the cast. The singer made the announcement on Twitter with a really cool American Horror Story themed video. Check out the video below.
EW adds that Gaga isn’t just talking about a guest spot — she’ll be a regular on the series. That makes American Horror Story: Hotel her most substantial acting gig yet. Gaga has previously cameoed as herself in Men in Black III and The Simpsons, and she had small roles in Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Series creator Ryan Murphy has promised to keep details on the next series secret for now, but he did drop hints that Freak Show offered some teases to the new season, most notably that a top hat on Maggie’s (Emma Roberts) coffee cup in Episode 4 was an “arcane” but “purposeful” clue.
Murphy has also revealed that all five seasons are in some way connected.
American Horror Story: Hotel will begin in October on FX.
