We had a great run.”  ‘Hotel’ will take place at hotel that is presumed to be haunted and star Lady Gaga. Kathy Bates is expected to return for season five, and although unsure if he will be returning, Evan Peters seemed open for another run.  ‘AHS: Hotel’ will begin filming in late summer in Los Angeles and will debut in late October.
