American Horror Story‘s next tale will feature the mother of all monsters.
TVLine has learned that Lady Gaga is set to headline the forthcoming fifth season — titled American Horror Story: Hotel — of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series.

Details on the Grammy-winning pop phenom’s role are being kept under wraps, but sources confirm that Gaga will very much be the star of the latest chapter, which likely will be the franchise’s first without leading lady Jessica Lange. Here, she teases it in a video:

This marks the most significant foray into acting for Gaga; her previous work in the thespian arena includes a supporting role in Machete Kills and a bit part as “Girl at the Swimming Pool” in a Season 3 episode of The Sopranos.
The news comes in the wake of Gaga’s rapturously received Sound of Music tribute at Sunday’s Oscars.
At the Television Critics Assoc. winter press tour last month, FX Networks CEO John Landgraf teased that AHS‘ fifth season would be “very different” from its predecessors, adding that viewers can expect “an unusually large reinvention in between Book 4 and Book 5 relative to, say, between Book 3 [Coven] and 4 [Freak Show].”

The Gaga-infused fifth season of AHS will bow in October.
AMERICAN HORROR STORY Returns Wednesday October 8th

American Horror Story: Freak Show begins its tale in the quiet, sleepy hamlet of Jupiter, Florida. The year is 1952. A troupe of curiosities has just arrived to town, coinciding with the strange emergence of a dark entity that savagely threatens the lives of townsfolk and freaks alike. This is the story of the performers and their desperate journey of survival amidst the dying world of the American carny experience.
