American Horror Story veteran Evan Peters is re-upping for the show’s fifth season. The actor, who has starred in every single season of the series, has signed on for a starring role in American Horror Story: Hotel.
As with all things American Horror Story, details of Evan Peters character are being kept firmly under wraps, as is the plot-line for Hotel. “This season, Evan Peters will be waiting for you in Room 64”, series co-creator Ryan Murphy said on Twitter.
Evan Peters, who is currently shooting feature film Elvis & Nixon with Kevin Spacey, joins a cast which includes Lady Gaga, Kathy Bates, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson, Wes Bentley, Chloë Sevigny and Sarah Paulson. Fellow AHS veteran, Jessica Lange, is not returning for season five.
Hotel is set to enter production later this Summer in Los Angeles for an October premiere on FX. American Horror Story is produced by 20th Century Fox Television and counts Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear amongst its executive producers.
