We’ve been speculating on the fifth season of FX’s series American Horror Story long before Freak Show even had a chance to end, and today the subtitle and theme of the brand new upcoming season has been revealed. But that’s not all, as a pop culture icon has joined the cast. Read on!

THR reports today that Lady Gaga will star in American Horror Story: Hotel, making this the first major acting role for the beloved singer. She is the first confirmed cast member for the season, though it is likely that series regular Kathy Bates will once again be returning.

Specific details about the season are being kept under wraps at the moment, though we can assume it will take place in a hotel. Unlike previous seasons, that subtitle doesn’t provide much of a clue as to what we can expect, so for now your guess is as good as ours.

In conjunction with the breaking news, Lady Gaga tweeted out a short teaser for Hotel, urging her fans to make their reservations now. You can view that below, for your first little taste of the show’s fifth season.

In all likelihood, American Horror Story: Hotel will premiere on FX this coming October.
