PaleyFest this year ended with some unfortunate news for “American Horror Story” fans. The AHS panel at the event revealed that series regular, Jessica Lange, will not return for the next season.
Despite the shocking news that Lange has left, the upcoming season will feature some new and exciting additions. It was announced a couple of months ago that season five would feature singer Lady Gaga as well as Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson.
“It was my absolute favorite,” Lange said of her time on the FX show. “We had a great run here. I mean, I absolutely love doing these four characters, and in all the madness, I love the writers and Ryan [Murphy] and the insanity of shooting it.”
Since the show’s inception in 2011, Lange has garnered two Primetime Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her work on “American Horror Story.”
Few other details have been announced regarding the season 5. What we do know is that the new setting will be a mysteriously haunted hotel. It will return some time in October.
