‘American Horror Story’ Season 5 Checks Sarah Paulson Back Into ‘Hotel’
American Horror Story Season 5 seems more and more familiar by the addition of past series stars, and now the franchise’s greatest treasure has Hotel horror growing significantly stronger. Never one to miss a season, Sarah Paulson has officially booked her stay in American Horror Story: Hotel, but for how long?
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before, but series creator Ryan Murphy announced Paulson’s return over Twitter, sans any real details of the role. It also remains to be seen if her commitment to American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson will diminish Paulson’s Hotel presence, though Ryan Murphy at least teased it’d be a memorable one:
Paulson joins a Hotel cast that thus far includes returning Coven alum Kathy Bates, Asylum star Chloe Sevigny, Freak Show guests Wes Bentley and Matt Bomer, along with new additions Cheyenne Jackson and Lady Gaga. FX boss John Landgraf described American Horror Story Season 5 as an “unusually large reinvention” of the series, while Jessica Lange confirmed her exit, and series stars Denis O’Hare and Evan Peters gave an optimistic outlook on appearances.
Season 5 production on American Horror Story: Hotel will commence in California later this summer, but what other past series stars will check in for the FX horror drama’s fifth run?
