The singer and actress, who won a Golden Globe for her performance in AHS: Hotel, said Friday that she is coming back to the FX anthology series.
In an interview with New York radio station Z100, she answered simply “yes” when asked whether she would return. (Season six was ordered by the cabler in November.) However, she remained tight-lipped when pressed for details. “I can’t promise you how or when or anything like that,” she said.
Gaga (real name: Stefani Germanotta) made her acting debut as the lead in the fifth season of the FX series. She filled a void left by longtime star Jessica Lange, who opted not to return after starring in the first four seasons of Ryan Murphy’s hit horror series. When speaking with THR about the series, Gaga called Murphy a “creative soul mate.”
Gaga won the Golden Globe Award for best actress in a limited TV series. In addition to her Globe win, it’s been a busy 2016 so far for the singer, who performed at the Super Bowl, the Grammys and, most recently, the Oscars, where she was introduced by Vice President Joe Biden.
Murphy confirmed late last year that he had asked Gaga to return for season six. So far, the only other returning castmember is Angela Bassett. No other details are known about where the new season will take place, but FX chief John Landgraf revealed in January that the new story will be “principally set in the present.”
FX has not yet made any formal casting announcements about the new season.
