American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy continues to announce the returning shows cast, and the latest to be revealed is yet another returning actress.
Angela Bassett, who appeared as The Voodoo Queen in Coven, and as Marie Laveau in Freak Show, returns for Hotel, and it sounds like her and Lady Gaga will be causing some trouble.
In October, Angela Bassett will be making lots of trouble with Lady Gaga in the ballroom and elsewhere. #ahshotel

Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lady Gaga, Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson have previously been cast.
Jessica Lange will not be returning.
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.
