The internet is stirring with news and rumors about what American Horror Story fans can expect from the new season, “Hotel”, which debuts in October. So far what we know is that one of the starring roles is pop sensation Lady Gaga. A news publication, Christian Post, reported that the fifth season would be based on an actual real-life hotel and the mysterious activities that have happened inside of it”.  Jessica Lange, unfortunately,

will not be continuing with American Horror Story. She has been in American Horror Story for four seasons. “I’m done,” Lange told the crowd. “We’ve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play, and in all madness, I love the writers and Ryan and the insanity of shooting it,” she said.
“I’ve done four great characters,” she continued before adding, finally, “it’s enough.”

Although the show is losing such a well-known actress, AHS will be gaining quite a few more popular actors. This Cecil Hotel, where the show is taking place, is notorious for its history of accidents and crimes, including multiple suicides in the 1950s and 1960s, as well as a few bizarre deaths and serial killers. Elizabeth Short, also known as Black Dahlia, was last spotted at the hotel before her gruesome murder in 1947. There was reported to be a few deaths with people drowning in the hotel’s water tank. Some people are convinced they still see a little girl haunting the elevators and hallways. This season is said to be similar to A&E’s series,”Bates Motel”, with a similar plot.
