Kathy Bates Checking Into ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’


American Horror Story alum Kathy Bates has signed on to appear in the show’s upcoming fifth installment, American Horror Story: Hotel.

The show’s creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the news of Bates’ return today with a simple tweet:

Bates has played memorable characters in her 2 previous seasons on the show, giving a chilling performance as Delphine LaLaurie in Coven and a heart-wrenching one as Esther Darling in last year’s Freak Show, so we’re excited to see what she brings to Hotel later this year.

In addition to Kathy the confirmed season five cast now includes Lady Gaga, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson. Still no word on AHS vets Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters or Angela Bassett just yet, but we’re still holding out hope.

Are you as excited as we are the Bates will star in another season of American Horror Story? According to Ryan, Bates will be “running” the hotel, so let us know your thoughts and theories below!
