Get ready to step foot inside the scariest hotel in television history by watching FX’s trailer for “American Horror Story: Hotel,” set to premiere October 7. The spooky preview reveals first images of many of the show’s creepy characters, including those played by Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson. Watch the new trailer below.
In addition to that trio of headliners, the fifth installment of FX’s scarily popular anthology series features new and returning faces like Angela Bassett, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloe Sevigny, Denis O’Hare, Cheyenne Jackson, Evan Peters and Finn Wittrock. 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 70 nominations with eight victories in the movie/miniseries categories.
