11 of 12 Several usual suspects will return, but expect a "tighter" story Many AHS actors return year after year in new roles. They even call themselves a "repertory company," with new members (like Lady Gaga) joining the ranks as others (like Jessica Lange) decide to move on. It's not clear exactly how many returnees will be in Season 6, but so far it has been reported that Lady Gaga, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Angela Bassett, Leslie Jordan, Denis O'Hare, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, and Kathy Bates will be returning, with Cuba Gooding Jr. as a new face on the roster. Emma Roberts hasn't been confirmed, but she did say that she and Murphy had discussed a "devilish" role for her in Season 6. Taissa Farmiga has also been rumored to return, but that hasn't been confirmed. However, even with familiar faces returning, don't expect Season 6 to be too unwieldy. Back in May, AHS "Freak Show" and "Hotel" co-star Finn Wittrock talked to TheWrap about wanting to be a part of the new season, although he had only heard rumors on the theme at that point. "I have heard it is going to be a little tighter — there were so many story lines in the last one and it was so big and epic, I have a feeling it might be a little more claustrophobic. A smaller cast." Titles: American Horror Story People: Angela Bassett , Kathy Bates , Sarah Paulson , Matt Bomer , Evan Peters Photo by Albert L. Ortega © 2015 Albert L.
