'American Horror Story' Won't Embrace the Slender Man After All

Contrary to a previous report, "American Horror Story" apparently won't be targeting the Slender Man -- the Internet meme turned contemporary folklore figure -- in its sixth season.

E! News contends the hit FX anthology series will instead center on "an idea that has been hinted about in previous seasons." Well, that should send fans into a five-season rewatching binge.

What does appear to be true, however, is that co-creator Ryan Murphy would like Lady Gaga to return after her Golden Globe-winning performance in last season's "American Horror Story: Hotel." No surprise there, of course.

According to the website, the new season will be announced in March, ahead of its fall premiere.
