American Horror Story: Hotel, the fifth season of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology, premieres Wednesday, and Lady Gaga, who stars as the Countess, is ready: In a photo posted on Instagram, the musician smokes a cigarette and flips off the camera as a cigarette dangles from her red lips. “It’s showtime,” she wrote in the caption.

This season marks Gaga’s American Horror Story debut, but Murphy has already expressed his desire to have her back again: “Lady Gaga is so brilliant in AHS Season 5 that yesterday I officially asked her to join Season 6,” Murphy tweeted Tuesday, just a day before the premiere. “Say yes @ladygaga!”

Gaga hasn’t publicly replied just yet, but she did retweet Murphy’s tweet. See her Instagram photo below, and watch her on American Horror Story when it debuts Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
