Speculations on the plot of the new installment of American Horror Story entitled Hotel has been surfacing online. A fan Tumblr post speculates that Lady Gaga will star in at least three season. The fan also says that Hotel will not be a musical. The Tumblr post that the fan posted was allegedly from an FX insider’s scoop about the series.
Lady Gaga’s character was portrayed as a “beautiful, strange, yet sophisticated heiress who runs a hotel and will do whatever it keeps to keep it up and running, regardless of the tragic and disturbing events that have taken place there”.
Lady Gaga will be playing a lead role in the anthology series American Horror Story: Hotel.
According to a post, Hotel will be about a “Satanic cult, corrupt politicians, secret societies, and other strange guests that have been in the hotel for years”.
Lady Gaga’s character is speculated to have found out that the guests of the hotel are involved in shady activities. She does not stop them from performing these activities, instead, she allows them and charges high rates. An insider shares that a newly married couple are to check in the hotel and will find out later that it is corrupted and that they cannot leave because they are caught in the middle of a dark force.
Hotel will be taking place in modern times, however, it will also feature flashbacks to 1970s and 1980s.
The fan speculations saying Gaga will play a role of a strange heiress part might be true because the singer herself disclosed that season five will be “twisted”. She wrote on Twitter, “I am so excited to be a part of American Horror Story’s hardworking cast. A twisted fantasy. My favorite kind.”
Rumors that Jessica Lange playing the older version of the singer have been put to rest, as Lange has already announced her departure from the series at Paleyfest panel.
“Yes, I’m done,” the actress said. “We’ve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I’ve loved the writers, my actors, Ryan [Murphy, creator] and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in New Orleans, the stories, everything.”
A Reddit user suggested that the rock band Eagles’ song Hotel California might be connected to the series’ plot.
During the TCA winter press tour FX Networks chief executive John Landgraf stated that season five of American Horror Story will make some extreme changes to assist progress the show as a whole.
“I know what [the premise for season five] is, but I can’t [say]. I have to let [series boss] Ryan [Murphy] do his thing on that. But it’s very different.”
Landgraf also added, “One of the things I love so much about that is that it can be radically, radically reinvented in terms of tone, setting, period, characters, cast… I think there’s going to be an unusually large reinvention in between book four and book five relative to, say, between book three and four.”
It was revealed a few weeks ago that Wes Bentley, Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson have also been casted to be a part of the show, and a couple of days ago, AHS alum Chloe Sevigny was confirmed as a series regular.
American Horror Story: Hotel will debut its 13-episode season run in October 2015.
