Another familiar face is returning to the "American Horror Story" universe: Angela Bassett has been confirmed to star on the upcoming fifth season, "Hotel."
"AHS" creator Ryan Murphy -- as he's done many times before in recent months -- revealed the news on Twitter, writing that Bassett would once again take part in the horror anthology series. Bassett, who also starred on "Coven" and "Freak Show," will be "making lots of trouble with Lady Gaga in the ballroom and elsewhere," Murphy wrote.

Details of Gaga's role have yet to be revealed, though based on this observation from Murphy, she and Bassett will play antagonists this season. Murphy made similarominous statements about returning "AHS" vets Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, too.
"American Horror Story: Hotel" also stars Kathy Bates, Chloe Sevigny, Matt Bomer, Wes Bentley, and Cheyenne Jackson. It shoots this summer, with an October premiere date planned.
