The anticipated next chapter of the "American Horror Story" saga officially has a premiere date.
"American Horror Story: Hotel" will premiere Wednesday, October 7, FX announced today (August 7) at the 2015 Television Critics Association press tour. The season's fancy new logo was also released:
While the details of Ryan Murphy's "Hotel" remain scarce, here's what we do know: Lady Gaga will be filling the sizable hole left by Jessica Lange's departure from the series at the end of last season's installment, "Freak Show." And Gaga's character might be a real monster in "Hotel."
Gaga will join "AHS" newbies Matt Bomber (Donovan), "New Girl" star Max Greenfield, Richard T. Jones (Detective Hahn), Helena Mattsson, Naomi Campbell, Cheyenne Jackson, and "Glee" star Darren Criss.
Of course, Murphy has relied on several "AHS" vets to round out the stellar cast. Sarah Paulson will guest star as Hypodermic Sally, Angela Bassett as Ramona and Evan Peters as Mr. March. Fellow alums Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, Emma Roberts, Denis O'Hare and Lily Rabe (as a serial killer -- NBD) will also appear. Kathy Bates as will be the HBIC at the Hotel, Iris.
FX also released this creepy glimpse into the "Hotel" in question. Who's that we see through the peep hole? Could that be Gaga? And which psycho is doing the creeping?!
OMFG October 7 cannot come soon enough.
