Angela Bassett will be taking on her third American Horror Story character with a role in the upcoming American Horror Story: Hotel. Bassett joined the horror anthology series with American Horror Story: Freak Show and followed that up with a scene-stealing role in AHS: Coven. She joins previously announced American Horror Story alum Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny and Matt Bomer for this fifth season of the FX series.

AHS: Hotel will also star franchise newbies Lady Gaga and Cheyenne Jackson.

Filming’s expected to begin this summer in LA on season five. FX is aiming for an October premiere of the 13-episode AHS: Hotel.
