The cast of ‘American Horror Story’ took a walk down memory lane on March 26, when they came together for the show’s panel at PaleyFest and reminisced about Season 6. As for Season 7, the cast talked Lady Gaga’s possible return, what the new theme may or may not entail, and more. Get all the scoop here!
We still don’t know a lot about Season 7 of American Horror Story, but when the cast came together to discuss Season 6 (Roanoke) at this year’s PaleyFest on March 26, they dropped a few teasers for us! For example, one fan asked if Lady Gaga would be returning for Season 7. Sadly, there was no answer, but silence is often the loudest answer. Don’t you think? If we had to venture a guess, we’d say she’s at least in talks to come back.
Sarah Paulson also talked about the forthcoming election-themed season, saying, the media may or may not be involved in the storyline, but when executive producer Brad Falchuk writes characters for her, he writes them so she can make them likable. We “write characters for Sarah Paulson that would be unlikeable if played by anyone but Sarah,” he said.
And when one fan asked if “more famous” people will be added to the cast for Season 7, Sarah, Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Kathy Bates jokingly felt slighted, so they got up and walked out! It was all in good fun, though. But as you can see, not a lot was revealed about Season 7.

The cast did, however, talk a lot about filming Roanoke, which Brad said was “raw and scary.” Apparently, Roanoke was an “American mystery” they always had “in the back of our head” and wanted to tell.
And when filming got underway, the cast was sworn to secrecy. Sarah said, “This was a total blackout — there was nothing we could say about Roanoke. It was a new world order of knowing nothing. Even when we were reading it, we didn’t know what the F was happening!”
Executive producer Tim Minear added that it was hard to find a place to film while also keeping the storyline a secret. Kathy Bates recalled going to Big Bear to film some scenes. She said she got altitude sickness en route to Big Bear and “blew lunch” on the way down. So funny!
We have to admit — Season 6 was pretty great, regardless of the struggles the cast and crew endured. So, obviously, we have high hopes for Season 7! And we’d love to see Gaga return.
