Sorry folks, Jessica Lange will not be returning for next season of American Horror Story.
HipHollywood attended the 2015 Paleyfest American Horror Story: Freak Show panel on Sunday night where Lange confirmed that she will be moving on after four long, yet exciting seasons. “To cut to the chase, no,” she said when asked if she will be back.
The actress added, “We’ve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play.”
But as fans say goodbye to the show’s star, they will be saying hello to a few new hotties. During the panel, the crew announced that Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson will join the cast, alongside newcomer, Lady Gaga.
While on the red carpet, AHS actor, Michael Chiklis shared with HipHollywood that he is excited to see Gaga’s acting chops. “She’s an incredible talent. She is a crazy, great musician,” Michael, who played Dell Toledo on Freak Show explained. “I’m looking forward to seeing what she does.”
The cast and crew gathered during the closing night presentation to celebrate an amazing series, but a night on this level would not have gone on without the mention of their late friend and co-star, Ben Woolf. The 34-year-old died on February 23 after being struck on the head with a car mirror from an SUV.
“He was just such a sweetheart,” Finn Wittrock said. “Why is it always the best ones who go.”
AHS: Hotel will kick off production in late summer and premiere on FX in October.
