Though no details about Bassett’s character are available, Murphy’s message implies that she’ll be involved in the same storyline as castmate Lady Gaga.

Bassett made her AHS debut with Season 3’s Coven chapter, and also was a part of Season 4’s Freak Show.

She joins previously announced Hotel cast members Gaga, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley, Chloe Sevigny, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Kathy Bates.

Production on AHS: Hotel will begin in Los Angeles this summer, with a debut slated for October.

    Yes! Love her!

  3. William says:

    YES, I’ve been waiting for this announcement! Hopefully Ryan & Co. utilize Angela’s presence on the show because she was severely underused in Freakshow. I need her to come through with scenestealing moments like Coven.

  4. Bartimeus says:

    Now we just need Conroy and I will be satisfied.

  5. Dude says:

    About time. Let’s just hope she’s better utilized than she was in Freak Show.

  6. Spence says:

    Damn, now I have to watch it….

  7. kyle says:

    She and Lady Gaga will be playing rival jazz singers at the hotel.

    This makes it better. Now if we get Lily Rabe I will be emotionally able to handle Lordy Gags all season.

  9. steven says:

    Somebody get Zachary Quinto back too.

  10. Robert says:

    YES!!!! I am so happy about this news. I am beginning to wonder if this new season is going to actually take place in Los Angeles? I remember reading a long time ago about a hotel, that is suppose to be haunted by celebrities who stayed there but I can’t remember the name of the hotel.

  12. Matt C. says:

    Sarah, Kathy, and Angela were the only 3 I really wanted to come back for Hotel, so I’m pretty happy right now! Any further casting announcements will just be icing on top of the cake!
