Ryan Murphy's horror anthology, "American Horror Story" has been renewed for a fifth season and so far, there are several things that we know about it, including the fact that Jessica Lange will not be in the series anymore, but Lady Gaga will be.

As noted by Us Magazine, the pop star will star as a series regular alongside Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson. While Gaga and Jackson are newcomers in the series, Bomer previously appeared in the fourth season as the blue-eyed hustler who became a victim to Dandy the murderer.

Gaga also previously confirmed that the new season will involve a presumably haunted hotel, and will be filmed in Los Angeles, where seasons 1 (Murder House) and 2 (Asylum) were shot.

Cinema Blend also noted that the fifth season will be very different from previous installments as of course, that's what the series lives for. FX President John Landgraf said in the Television Critics Association winter press tour that the season will be wildly different. He was quoted as saying, "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 Book 4."

"Different" may be construed as bizarre; however, as fans seem to think that the fifth season, despite being titled "Hotel," may actually involve aliens. Not that it's the first time creator Ryan Murphy broached on that subject - he included the presence of extra terrestrial creatures in "Asylum" after all.

Inquisitr also noted that many clues from season 4, "Freak Show," seem to reference military and space, which led many to think that "Hotel" will make its own version of Operation Top Hat set in the present.

Some of the clues that fans have been keen about include Jessica Lange's character in "Freak Show" being named Elsa Mars, and the story being set in Jupiter, which references space, and Evan Peters' Jimmy Darling being keen on dressing up as a soldier for Halloween, which of course, references the military.

Murphy already previously confirmed that all the seasons will be connected, even getting Lily Rabe to appear on the last season to reprise her role as Sister Mary Eunice from Asylum. Naomi Grossman also returned to reprise her role as Pepper, so at some point, all of these will be stitched together to form a big story.

Do you think aliens could be the bizarre new twist on the horror anthology, or are the fans looking too much into the Top Hat references?
