The actress's involvement was revealed by "AHS" creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy, who tweeted out the news on Tuesday morning. Murphy wrote that he was "very excited" to have the actress return to the "AHS" fold.

Sevigny had a brief but memorable turn on season two of the FX horror anthology series, starring as Shelley the nymphomaniac on "American Horror Story: Asylum." She joins the previously-announced cast of Lady Gaga, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, and Cheyenne Jackson.

"American Horror Story: Hotel" is set to debut sometime this October. It will be the series's first season without original star Jessica Lange.
