American Horror Story will return to FX later tonight for season five. This season is titled Hotel, and it will bring Lady Gaga to the small screen as the woman in charge of a haunted Hollywood hotel named Hotel Cortez.
Jessica Lange is gone after four seasons, but many familiar faces are returning for more scary drama. The returning cast members include Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett. Fans of the anthology series will see new faces like Matt Bomer join in the action. He stars on this season as the lover of Lady Gaga’s character.
She spoke about The Countess with Entertainment Weekly.
“The Countess is a very old soul. She’s extremely strong. She’s been through so much. It’s kind of impossible for anything to penetrate her. This show in many ways is about her survival and there is an amazing journey that touches on the mythology of viruses and in what way these afflictions change our lives and bring us together and tear us apart.”
Ryan Murphy has a lot of faith in Lady Gaga and fan reception of her. The series has not even premiered yet, and Murphy has already asked her to return for American Horror Story season six.
Lady Gaga is so brilliant in AHS Season 5 that yesterday I officially asked her to join Season 6. Say yes @ladygaga!

Murphy has kept a lot about the series under wraps. Beyond the setting and the characters set to appear this season, not much is known about the plot.
However, the members of the cast have gushed about the upcoming season with the media. Denis O’Hare shared his excitement for Hotel with TV Line.
“The theme is different, but also the feeling on the set is different. But I think it’s going to be really scary. It feels like Season 1 in many ways … and I think it’s because we’re back in LA. You can’t help it!”
