Kathy Bates is officially back for her third season of "American Horror Story." Ryan Murphy announced the news of Bates' return for "AHS: Hotel" on Twitter Wednesday, revealing that Bates' character will be running the titular hotel.

Bates, who was previously in "Coven" and "Freak Show," joins Lady Gaga, Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer, Chloe Sevigny and Cheyenne Jackson for Season 5. Nothing more is known about "Hotel" yet, but based on "Freak Show" clues, we've speculated what it could be about.

"American Horror Story" returns in October on FX.
