During last week’s American Horror Story: Freak Show panel at PaleyFest, the cast revealed some good, and not-so-good news, about the show’s fifth season, Hotel.
During the panel, Jessica Lange confirmed she will not return for American Horror Story: Hotel.
“I’ve had a great run here,” Lange said. “I have absolutely loved to play these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play. I love the writers, my actors, and Ryan [Murphy] and the whole insanity of it.”
Fans are sad to see Lange go but, in the plus category, it was also announced that Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson are joining the Hotel cast along with, previously announced addition, Lady Gaga.
So where and when can fans start looking for American Horror Story: Hotel to begin filming? According to Murphy, production on Hotel will return to Los Angeles (Coven and Freak Show were both shot in New Orleans) and filming is expected to begin in August, with the show debuting on FX in October.
