Angela Bassett has previously appeared on both Freak Show and Coven. She joins previously announced cast members Kathy Bates, Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, and Chloe Sevigny, and Evan Peters. As we previously told you, Jessica Lange has confirmed that she will not be returning for season five.
In addition to keeping information about which characters each of the cast members will portray under wraps, series creator Ryan Murphy is also keeping a tight lid on what the fifth season of the show will be about. But speculations have already been made that this could possibly be a loose retelling of the crimes of serial killer H.H. Holmes and his “Murder Castle”. However, that is really nothing more than conjecture at this point. We will keep you in the loop as more details are announced in the coming months.
