American Horror Story: Hotel Trailer: Lady Gaga & More Residents Revealed

From the looks of American Horror Story: Hotel‘s first trailer, the FX drama’s titular locale is a lot like the Hotel California: You can check out, but never leave. (Then again, with this cast, why would you want to leave?)

The trailer, released Thursday, gives eager fans their first glimpse of the stars in action, including Lady Gaga as hotel owner Elizabeth (aka “the Countess”); Angela Bassett as Ramona Royale, the Countess’ ex-lover; Sarah Paulson as hotel resident Hypodermic Sally; and Kathy Bates as Iris, the mother of Matt Bomer’s Donovan.

Additional Hotel cast members include Lily Rabe, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny, Finn Wittrock, Evan Peters, Mädchen Amick and Max Greenfield. Speaking of Greenfield, AHS creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed that the New Girl star is featured in “the most disturbing scene we’ve ever done.”

American Horror Story: Hotel premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10/9c.
