Chloe Sevigny, who had a guest role in the second season, will return as a series regular in FX's "American Horror Story: Hotel." The announcement was made this morning on Twitter by co-creator Ryan Murphy.
The actress previously played Shelley, a nymphomaniac inmate at Briarcliff Manor, for six episodes of "Asylum."
Sevigny joins a Season 5 cast that includes Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Cheyenne Jackson and Wes Bentley. No details have been revealed about the character or the storyline, but it's probably safe to assume the season will be set in a hotel.
Series mainstay Jessica Lange confirmed she won't be returning for "Hotel," but Kathy Bates and Evan Peters are expected to be back.
Production begins this summer for a late-October premiere.
