Chloe Sevigny will return to "American Horror Story." Ryan Murphy tweeted on Tuesday that Sevigny, who appeared in Season 2's "Asylum," will come back for "AHS: Hotel" as a series regular.
Very excited to announce that Chloe Sevigny returns to the AHS family as a series regular on "AHS: Hotel."

So far, no other "AHS" regulars have been announced to return for the upcoming fifth season of FX's horror anthology series. Sevigny joins Wes Bentley (who guest starred on three episodes of "American Horror Story: Freak Show") and Matt Bomer (who appeared briefly in one "Freak Show" episode) as returning alums. "AHS" newcomers Lady Gaga and "Glee" star Cheyenne Jackson will also appear during the fifth season of the anthology series. Nothing more is known about the new season, besides the fact that "AHS" favorite Jessica Lange officially won't return to the franchise. (Although we have speculated about what the mysterious "Hotel" could be about.)
"AHS" fans will remember Sevigny as Shelly from "Asylum," an inmate at Briarcliff Manor. Sevigny's character faced one of the worst horrors the series has ever seen when Shelley's legs were amputated by Dr. Arden. Let's hope nothing that horrific happens to her in the hotel.
"American Horror Story" returns in October on FX.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this post failed to mention Wes Bentley would also appear on "AHS: Hotel."
