The next installment in FX’s American Horror Story has snagged returning AHS player Sarah Paulson. The network confirmed today that Paulson will be a part of the American Horror Story: Hotel cast. Paulson’s has been involved in every AHS season, kicking off with Murder House and continuing with Asylum, Coven, and Freak Show. There’s no word yet on who Paulson will be playing this time around, but it’s almost guaranteed it will be less taxing on her than playing Siamese twins was in AHS: Freak Show.

Paulson joins a cast that includes Kathy Bates, Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley and Chloë Sevigny. Filming on season five of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series will begin this summer, with FX eyeing an October premiere date.

Being a part of the American Horror Story ensemble has earned Paulson two Emmy nominations, and in 2011 she picked up the Best Supporting Actress in a Movie/Miniseries for her work in AHS: Asylum.
