It was confirmed today that Kathy Bates will be joining American Horror Story: Hotel...
Showrunner Ryan Murphy confirmed news that the actress will be back for the FX anthology's fifth season, American Horror Story: Hotel.
"Kathy Bates is running the Hotel. #AHSSeason5," Murphy announced.
Starring Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson, American Horror Story: Hotel will be the first season of the series from Murphy and Brad Falchuk without leading lady Jessica Lange.
Bates' return, which had been rumored for months, will mark her third season with the series after her co-starring roles in Coven and Freak Show. (Bates won an Emmy for her role in Coven.)
I'm so happy that she's returning for another season and hope that her character doesn't lose her head, literally, again (which has happened the past two seasons).
Although, even without a body, she still always manages to outshine most other actors around her.
