We finally know who will be checking into the “American Horror Story: Hotel” next season.
Actors from both “American Horror Story” and “Scream Queens“ joined Ryan Murphy, co-creator of both shows, onstage at a combined Comic-Con panel on Sunday. “AHS” Season 5 cast members Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Evan Peters and Matt Bomer took the stage alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin and Billie Lourd of Fox’s upcoming “Scream Queens.”
While Murphy didn’t share any new footage from either series, he did reveal a handful of details about the new season of “AHS,” according to multiple outlets. We now know that Sarah Paulson will play Hypodermic Sally, Evan Peters is Mr. March, Kathy Bates is Iris and Matt Bomer is Donovan. We also know that all of the above characters, plus Angela Bassett’s character, will be evil.
Although Murphy reportedly didn’t say much about how “Hotel” will tie in to the previous seasons of “AHS,” which he revealed last year were all connected, he did say that former “AHS” characters will return in the new season.
Murphy also revealed that Paulson, whose characters have previously survived all four seasons of “AHS,” may not survive this year.
While “Hotel” newcomer Lady Gaga was not at the panel on Sunday, Murphy revealed the story behind her casting. The pop singer apparently contacted Murphy herself and asked if she could play an evil character. His response? “YES,” in all caps, according to Mashable. Gaga won’t have any singing moments on the horror series, but fashion will be a major aspect of the “Bad Romance” singer’s character.
So far, Murphy hasn’t revealed any further details about “Hotel,” but we do know it will also star Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Max Greenfield and Cheyenne Jackson. ”AHS” veteran Jessica Lange has already been pretty clear that she won’t be returning to the show; however, Murphy reportedly made a comment during the panel that the actress could come back one day, according to E! News.
FX has yet to release further plot details about “American Horror Story: Hotel,” but we have speculated on what the new season could be about, based on previous clues.
“American Horror Story” returns in October on FX.
“Scream Queens” premieres on Sept. 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET on Fox.
