Get ready to step foot inside the scariest hotel in television history by clicking through our new “American Horror Story: Hotel” cast photo gallery. Set to premiere Wednesday, October 7 on FX, the spooky images (see below) feature Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and more as their creepy new characters.
In addition to that trio of headliners, the fifth installment of FX’s scarily popular anthology series features new and returning faces like Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloe Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Finn Wittrock, Mare Winningham and Christine Estabrook, who reprises her character Marcy from Season 1. Co-creator Ryan Murphy once again returns as showrunner.
Despite the departure of Jessica Lange, “AHS: Hotel” should continue to dominate the ratings for FX thanks to the notable addition of Lady Gaga and the show’s creepy hotel theme. But will it also be a hit with the Emmys next year? As a refresher, the first four seasons racked up an incredible 71 nominations with 13 victories in the movie/miniseries categories.
