American Horror Story: Sarah Paulson Confirmed for Season 6

We still have no clue what American Horror Story Season 6 is about, but we can identify another member of the cast.

AHS vet Sarah Paulson confirmed Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour that she is indeed a member of the top-secret Season 6 ensemble. The current Emmy nominee — for her role as Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson — declined to provide any details about who she is playing in the latest chapter of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology.

This makes Paulson the fourth AHS alum to confirm a sixth-season return;  Cheyenne Jackson announced his participation in June; Lady Gaga revealed in March that she’ll be back, though she didn’t say “how or when,” and Angela Bassett let news of her return slip during a February interview with Larry King.

Earlier in the day, FX Networks’ CEO John Landgraf — when pressed about Season 6’s hush-hush premise — told reporters that his marketing team “went out and created many more trailers than you’ve actually seen for hypothetical seasons of American Horror Story, in different genres, different places. One of them is accurate, and the others are all misdirects.”

    Well, duh! An AHS season without Sarah Paulson just wouldn’t be the same. But then again, I used to think the same thing about Jessica Lange…

    So far, she’ll be the only one who’s been in every season. I’m trying to think who else is eligible for that title at this point.
    I believe it’s just Evan Peters; plus Lily Rabe, if you count her cameo in Freak Show as her Asylum character.

      Why wouldn’t someone count Lily Rabe? Just because she played the same character in two seasons doesn’t take away the fact she still appeared in every season.

      • Wordsmith says:

        I was thinking less about the fact it was a repeat character and more that it was just a cameo – one short scene in one episode – rather than a recurring role that was integral to the season.
        It definitely counts, but it should be weighed differently than the others; Peters in particular, who has had a fairly pivotal and meaty role in every season.

        • J.B. says:

          To be fair, Sarah Paulson’s character in Murder House was very short as well. So there’s no reason to discount Lily’s role in Freak Show.

          • Wordsmith says:

            Absolutely true. Evan Peters is the only one with a substantial character in every season thus far. Let’s hope that they keep the streak alive.

    I believe she confirmed it a few weeks ago on Chelsea. Maybe I’m wrong.

    Her and Angela need to be the lead of this show, instead of Gaga taking over for Lange it should have been Angela & Sarah I think they have proven themselves to be lead worthy.

    • Marguerite says:

      I agree, though Gaga & everyone seemed well cast for their character. Paulson as Hyperdermic Sally was amazing. She stole every scene she was in, IMO, and deserves Emmy for that performance. Lily Rabe was great in her small role – would like to see more of her. She was outstanding in Asylum. Angela always great. So much talent on this show. I hope Chloe Sevigny is back.
