'American Horror Story' season 6 cast news: Lady Gaga returning; new season's theme to be revealed soon?


The fifth season of “American Horror Story: Hotel” ended last January and fans of the show are now wondering what the theme of the next season will be. Casting is also a particular point of interest especially since singer Lady Gaga is set to return in the upcoming season.

There are already speculations that the new season will offer a darker vibe that may creep out viewers. It is also suggested that the new season will also make use of claustrophobic elements to also scare the loyal viewers.

Some of the cast from the previous season will also be returning. One of them is Lady Gaga, but it is still not confirmed what her role would be. It is also said that Angela Bassett will also be present once again for the sixth season. Other actors that would also make their return would be Denis O’Hare, Kathy Bates and Sarah Paulson.

As stated in reports, Evan Peters will also be coming back for the sixth season. The actor has already been with the television series for five seasons now, and he really appreciates that the showrunners have given him roles each season.

There are rumors that the next season’s location will be in a boarding school. The institution’s name would be Thatcher School, but this is yet to be confirmed.

The team behind “American Horror Story” has been very secretive with what the upcoming season will be about. One of the actors, Finn Wittrock, has mentioned, “I think they literally keep us in the dark so we can’t spill the beans even if we wanted to. I’ve heard lots of different rumors about it, but even last year, I didn’t know about ‘Hotel’ until a few months before we started. I know that they are actively writing it right now they are still figuring out what to do.”

Given that there are still no updates or leaks with regard to the upcoming season, it seems that series co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have been doing a good job keeping details of the upcoming season a secret.

There is still no exact release date for the sixth season of “American Horror Story,” but it is expected to premiere sometime in October.
