Sarah Paulson Returning for ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’

Playing the “baddest bad girl of them all,” show runner Ryan Murphy says.

Sarah Paulson is going to be all over FX next year and yes that means that she will be coming back for season 5 of American Horror Story which is set to center around events at a hotel.

The actress has booked her return to American Horror Story, show runner Ryan Murphy announced Monday.

“Sarah Paulson is checking into the “Hotel.” And this season, she’s the baddest bad girl of them all. #AHSSeason5,” Murphy tweeted.

Paulson has been a mainstay on American Horror Story since she appeared in season one. She has starred in three of its first four seasons and earned an Emmy nomination for her lead role in Coven.
The news of her return to Hotel comes as a bit of a surprise given that she’s also attached to star as prosecutor Marcia Clarkin in Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s other FX anthology American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.
“My focus will always be on American Horror Story for as long as he’ll have me,” Paulson told The Hollywood Reporter in December, ahead of her American Crime Story casting. “I have never felt so completely seen by another director or producer or person before in terms of his willingness time and time again to give me something to do that I didn’t even think I was capable of doing. I don’t know why in the world I’d want to go elsewhere when I’m getting the best deal in town. I absolutely want to do season five.”

So here’s who we know are coming back or set for their first season for sure for our entertainment (hopefully): Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer, Chloë Sevigny, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson, American Horror Story: Hotel will be the first season of the series from Murphy and Falchuk without leading lady Jessica Lange. I personally think that Jessica Lange made this show so it is going to be impossible in my mind to make the show as good without her amazing talent. Evan Peters has stated that he has not yet decided whether or not to return after finding out that Lange will not be returning to the series.
AHS: Hotel will debut in October 2015.
