Since FX has not officially announced the premiere date yet, the Twitter post cannot be considered entirely true.
But given the fact that season 1 aired on 5 October 2011, and season 2 on 17 October 2012, season 3 on 9 October 2013, and season 4 on 8 October 2014, all dates falling on Wednesdays, season 5 could premiere on Wednesday, 7 October 2015, just as the Twitter post predicted.
2. Lady Gaga's character: Creator Ryan Murphy dished on a few tid-bits about Lady Gaga's character in the horror show.
Murphy said Gaga will play a negative character, which is something the star requested. "She said, 'I want to be evil,'" the show creator recalled of his first meeting with Gaga. "I said, 'You came to the right place.'"
Murphy said that the superstar will shoot all of her episodes during one window to accommodate her busy schedule. "She likes to do one thing at one time," he explained, confirming that she will only be acting — no singing for Gaga in "AHS."
The creator also teased Gaga's style, and look in the FX show. "When you work with someone like her, you sign up for something that is larger than life and I think that's what you want," he said on a panel discussion. "Part of her role involves fashion. You want Lady Gaga to look a certain way. The designers have been coming out of the wood works with looks for her."
3. Lily Rabe to play serial killer on Hotel: Lily Rabe, who has appeared in all four seasons of the FX anthology series, will return to play a serial killer's role in AHS Hotel. The actress will portray a famous murderer who has stayed at the titular hotel.
4. Naomi Campbell to face off against Gaga's character: Naomi Campbell has joined AHS season 5 and will reportedly come face-to-face against Gaga's character.
According to TVLine, Campbell will play a fashion editor who becomes a potential victim, as she "pays the ultimate price for her critiques." According to reports she will share scenes and face-off against the singing sensation.
5 Character names: The Horror Story cast also revealed their names in the drama: Matt Bomer plays Donovan, Evan Peters will play Mr March, Sarah Paulson's character is named Hypodermic Sally and Kathy Bates is Iris.
