Longtime "American Horror Story" staple Sarah Paulson is returning for another round, set to play a big-time villain on "AHS: Hotel."

Creator Ryan Murphy revealed Paulson's involvement on Twitter, writing that the actress would be playing "the baddest bad girl of them all" on the horror anthology series's fifth season.

Paulson has been with "AHS" since the beginning, starring in the "Murder House," "Asylum," "Coven," and "Freak Show" seasons. Other "Hotel" cast members include Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Chloe Sevigny, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, and Cheyenne Jackson.

"American Horror Story: Hotel" will be back for 13 episodes on FX sometime in October.
