We previously reported that the creative team behind American Horror Story may be interested in picking up a script about the Internet urban legend The Slender Man. While we don’t have confirmation on that yet, we do have official word that Mother Monster, Lady Gaga will be returning for the series’ sixth season.
It’s not a big surprise that Gaga will be back as she recently picked up a Golden Globe for her performance in season five and rumors had already been circulating that she may be back for another season. However, it’s nice to have actual confirmation that we will be seeing the pop star in at least one more season of the series.
Gaga confirmed that she will return by way of an interview with Elvis Duran on Z100. When Duran asked if we could expect to see her in the series’ sixth season, she replied, “Yes.” But followed up by saying “I can’t promise you how or when or anything like that.” Duran took to Twitter to confirm the news for anyone that wasn’t tuned into the show.
(Update) Angela Basset also revealed during a recent interview with The Chew that not only will she be returning for the series sixth season, she will be directing an episode!
It has also been rumored that Jessica Lange may pop back up in season six but no official word on that at this juncture.
If history is any indicator, season six will premiere in October of this year. Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more on the sixth season of American Horror Story as it is announced.
