"American Horror Story" is a horror TV series created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. FX

The closer we get to the release of season five of "American Horror Story" the more juicy details we get like this new one that reveals Naomi Campbell will join the cast. With Jessica Lange not returning Ryan Murphy must be searching for other strong female personalities to fill the cast.

TV Line gives us more detail at Campbell's character saying the supermodel will play a fashion editor who pays the "ultimate price" for her critiques. Campbell has signed on for multiple episodes and purportedly, she will be filming most of her scenes with Lady Gaga and Angela Bassett.

It will be interesting to see Campbell act alongside newcomer Gaga when the series returns in October. Until that time check out these other 13 juicy details about season five of "American Horror Story: Hotel."

1. Max Greenfield who plays Schmidt on the Fox hit series "New Girl" has been confirmed to join the cast of season five of "American Horror Story." Creator of the series, Ryan Murphy, took to Twitter to confirm the news writing, "This October, Max Greenfield (like you've never seen him) is checking in to the hotel….but not checking out. #AHSHotel."

Murphy promises we'll see Schmidt like never before and we are looking forward to it. Whether or not he will be a series regular or just have a minor guest role is still to be determined.

2. So far the cast includes "AHS" vets Evan Peters, Chloe Sevigny, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock as well as newbies Lady Gaga, Matt Bomber and Cheyenne Jackson.

3. After roles in both "Coven" and "Freak Show" Oscar winner Kathy Bates will return to "AHS: Hotel." Murphy announced the news via Twitter writing, "Kathy Bates is running the Hotel. #AHSSeason5." This indicates that Bates will play the mysterious hotel owner. It was also revealed that Angela Bassett will return for "Hotel" but nothing was revealed about her character.

4. "AHS" vets Michael Chiklis told Us Weekly on the PaleyFest red carpet that he would be interested in returning to the series, but had not heard any information on their potential new roles. Denis O’Hare also confirmed to reporters that he would like to return.

5. Other regular AHS players, including Emma Roberts, Lily Rabe, and Gabourey Sidibe, have not commented one way or another on their involvement. Roberts and fellow vet Paulson are both signed on for new Murphy series, "American Crime Story," and Roberts in "Scream Queens" on Fox.

6. Jessica Lange will not be returning for season five. The 65-year-old actress confirmed her departure at Paleyfest.

“Yes, I’m done,” the actress revealed. “We’ve had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I’ve had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I’ve loved the writers, my actors, Ryan [Murphy, creator] and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in New Orleans, the stories, everything.”

7. During the TCA winter press tour FX Networks CEO John Landgraf indicated season five of "AHS" will make some drastic changes to help improve the show as a whole.

"I know what [the premise for season 5] is, but I can’t [say]. I have to let [series boss] Ryan [Murphy] do his thing on that. But it’s very different."

Landgraf added, "One of the things I love so much about that is that it can be radically, radically reinvented in terms of tone, setting, period, characters, cast… I think there’s going to be an unusually large reinvention in between Book 4 and Book 5 relative to, say, between Book 3 and 4."

8. Fans have theorized that clues were left in the previous season of "AHS" that give us a location for season five, the Garden of Allah Hotel in Hollywood.

According to Movie Pilot's web site Jessica Lange's character in "AHS: Freak Show," Elsa Mars, was inspired by Marlene Dietrich, the star of a film entitled Garden of Allah that was made in 1936.

The site also reveals, when Stanley is on the spinning board pleading for his life, he tells Elsa that he knows people in LA, because his brother "works at the Garden of Allah" in Hollywood.

Also viewers have noticed that in the bistro scene in the first episode of "AHS: Freak Show," Elsa mentions The Garden of Allah (although this is a reference to the film, not the hotel).

9. A rumor making its rounds on the internet says the show's storyline will be using the song "Hotel California" from the Eagles as a source material. The song was allegedly about Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan. According to Inquisitr, LaVey purchased a hotel in San Francisco and turned it into the Church of Satan.

10. No official release date has been revealed but The Wrap reports FX renewed "American Horror Story" for a 13-episode fifth season that will debut in October 2015.

11. "American Horror Story: Hotel" has been revealed to have a 13-episode arc and production will begin in Los Angeles late summer. With a premiere date something in October.

12. "AHS" veteran Naomi Grossman teases return to the series. Toofab recently caught up with the actress who portray Pepper the Pinhead, who expressed interest in returning as a new character in a future season.

"Of course there’s a chance. Anything’s possible in 'American Horror Story,'" Grossman teased. "Anything could happen. The Beatles could be resurrected and reunited on that show, anything could happen!"

13. FX has released a follow-up teaser trailer for the latest installment of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s anthology series, Hotel.

The teaser titled "Front Desk" features a very lavish and detailed glove, complete with what appears to be sharp silver nails, hitting the concierge bell at the front desk of a hotel. Lady Gaga is starring in the new season so we assume the glove belongs to her. Plus the videos description reads, "The Lady is ready to check in to AHS:Hotel this October on FX."
