    Yes! If you missed it, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley, and Chloe Sevigny will also return. For those who were not thrilled by the announcement about Lady Gaga appearing in American Horror Story Season 5, AKA American Horror Story Hotel, don’t panic. This is an ensemble cast, and she will not be replacing Jessica Lange as the lead. We’re not huge fans, but we’re also willing to give her a fair chance.
