Apparently, the cast & crew of the election-themed American Horror Story Season 7 took the last week off from filming; of course, the rumor mill continues to churn full steam ahead! Late last night, paparazzi/gossip site AHS Leaks dug up some text from the next issue of Variety Magazine, and it seems to confirm a recent fan favorite will be back on board; we’re talking about the one and only Lady Gaga.

As for addition alumni return rumors, AHS Leaks had previously announced that Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange participated in a photo shoot for Variety earlier in June. The implication being that Lange, who bowed out of the series after Season 4, may be returning (which would be an AHS fan’s wet dream). Still, Lange and Gaga have never appeared together in the same season, making this theory a bit incompatible with the first rumor above.
Also earlier in June, AHS Leaks cited a source with knowledge of the production who confirmed that Kathy Bates will not be appearing in Season 7, but will be on set to direct a single episode.

Of course, until we get official confirmation from FX or American Horror Story showrunner Ryan Murphy, all rumors need to be regarded with a hefty dose of skepticism. We’ll be keeping our ears to the ground in order to bring you official AHS Season 7 news as reliable details emerge. Stay tuned!
