Little is known about American Horror Story‘s upcoming sixth installment — Ryan Murphy’s team is keeping the lid on tighter than usual — but at least we know we’ll recognize a few familiar faces come fall.
In a new interview with Out magazine, Cheyenne Jackson reveals that he will return to the FX drama for Season 6. In fact, Jackson — who played hotel owner Will Drake in the show’s fifth season — says that filming has already begun.
This makes Jackson the third AHS alum to confirm a sixth-season return; 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.
FX boss Jonathan Landgraf has proven to be the most valuable source for Season 6 intel, though even he isn’t saying much. Back in January, he revealed that it will be “set in the present” with “echoes of the past” woven in. “It’s set in two time periods,” he elaborated, “but principally in the present.”
Added series creator Ryan Murphy at PaleyFest in March: “The interesting thing about this season is we’ve been working on two ideas at once, which we’ve never done. So I don’t want to say what it maybe is. Both things that we’re writing right now — we haven’t declared a winner — will have a different form, so we’re excited about that. We’ll talk about it soon, but we haven’t landed on it yet.”
