Ryan Murphy announced today via his Twitter account that Sarah Paulson is returning for ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’. He tweeted “Sarah Paulson is checking into “Hotel. And this season, she’s the baddest bad girl of them all. AHSSeason5.” Paulson is also attached to play Marcia Clark in ‘ American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson’ from Murphy and Brad Falchuk.
Last December Paulson told The Hollywood Reporter “My focus will always be on American Horror Story for as long as he’ll have me. I have never felt so completely seen by another director or producer or person before in terms of his willingness time and time again to give me something to do that I didn’t even think I was capable of doing. I don’t know why in the world I’d want to go elsewhere when I’m getting the best deal in town. I absolutely want to do season five.”
The fifth season of the series stars Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson. It’s the first season without Jessica Lange as lead actress. This marks the third season that Bates with be with the series. It is still unknown whether longtime cast member Evan Peters will be returning.
