American Horror Story star Angela Bassett stopped by EW’s offices while promoting her new film London Has Fallen (out March 4), so we had to ask her about working with Lady Gaga on AHS: Hotel. “It was exciting,” says Bassett. “You knew she’d be an formidable force and foe and indeed she was.”

But now the question everyone wants to know: Could Gaga be back for next season? Says Bassett, “I hear, I think, perhaps that she’s out to return. She had a good time with us.” 

Bassett has already declared she’ll definitely be back for another round of AHS and reveals that co-creator Ryan Murphy has teased her with a few details. “He did tell me at the Golden Globes that I would imbibe a little bit too much and yet I was very inuitive also and maybe Sarah [Paulson] was somehow the boss of me.” 

An anthology series that centers on different characters and locations, including a haunted house, an insane asylum, a witch coven, a freak show, and a hotel.
