American Horror Story is nowhere near finished clawing at you last nerve with Season 6's mystery approach, but they wouldn’t dream of a season without undeniable icon and Emmy nominee Sarah Paulson, right? Thankfully, FX knows at at least that much, setting Paulson’s return for American Horror Story Season 6.

Paulson herself confirmed the news at the ongoing TCA press tour (via TVLine), taking a moment from People v. O.J. Simpson talk to acknowledge her top-secret American Horror Story Season 6 role. Paulson had heroically balanced her time as Hypodermic Sally with shooting the role of Marcia Clark, though it remains unclear if she’ll return for American Crime Story’s second, Katrina-focused season.

Paulson becomes one of the few confirmed stars for the new AHS season, even as rumors had previously placed her on set. Not only that, but it seems another Horror alum is back on set, and apparently already topless:

Thus far, American Horror Story Season 6 has extended open invitations for any and all past stars to return, including Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley and Finn Wittrock. Murphy previously confirmed a shocking role in mind for Angela Bassett, while Lady Gaga has also been confirmed to recur in some capacity.

Paulson would fit pretty comfortably into a spacesuit, but who else will slowly confirm their American Horror Story Season 6 return? Here, have some possibly-fake teasers.
