American Horror Story Season 5: Helena Mattsson joins the cast!

Written by

As if heart-throb Matt Bomer and superstar singer-songwriter Lady Gaga weren't enough to get American Horror Story fans hyped about the show's fifth season, we've got another famous name to add to the Season 5 cast

A small part of all AHS fans died inside following the news that the show's mainstay Jessica Lange would not be returning for another season. Undoubtedly aware that this would come as a major disappointment for viewers, creator Ryan Murphy has been dropping Season 5-shaped bombshells here and there to keep fans guessing, ensuring they still tune in for the season premiere in October. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll know that singer Lady Gaga has joined the cast for American Horror Story: Hotel (If you haven't already seen the Gaga teaser trailer, check it out here.) It's also been recently revealed that Law & Order star Richard T. Jones will be checking into the hotel as a character called Detective Hahn. With 19 Emmy nominations, Murphy and the rest of the cast and crew are under a lot of pressure to impress us. Will their next cast recruit suffice?

Another day at work. Getting ready to film some scary stuff.. #thatsallicansay #americanhorrorstory

Although the Queen of Horror herself (Lange) has been slightly skeptical about some of Murphy's casting decisions for American Horror Story: Hotel, we're still psyched to see some new faces when the show returns in the fall. On top of those that have already been announced, we now have actress Helena Mattsson to add to the list of new AHS recruits. Having previously starred in shows such as Mistresses and Fargo, it has been confirmed that Mattsson will appear in Episode 1 of Hotel, according to a post on her Instagram account yesterday. While her character description remains a secret, her IMDb profile states that she will be called Agnetha in the show. Meanwhile, for Mattsson fans who are disappointed that she's only starring in the Season 5 premiere, "Checking In", information on the rest of the season has yet to be released, so there could still be chance she stays on longer. Fingers crossed! Are you looking forward to the American Horror Story: Hotel premiere?
