After wowing fans with his work on American Horror Story: Hotel as fashion designer Will Drake, Cheyenne Jackson has confirmed he'll be returning for the show's upcoming sixth season.

Cheyenne confirmed his return through Twitter when the actor responded to an article written about himself in OUT magazine by Michael Musto. Musto, who had asked the actor if he would be returned to American Horror Story, gave Cheyenne the perfect opportunity to confirm his role reprisal. The actor told fans, "It's true," after Musto tweeted out his article with the tagline, "Cheyenne Jackson tells me he's coming back to American Horror Story."

There are few details circulating about American Horror Story's direction next season as its creator Ryan Murphy has kept mum on the subject. However, in March, Murphy did say at PaleyFest that, "The interesting thing about the next season is that we've been working on two ideas at once, which we've never done."

Murphy also went onto say that the show's creative team had been inspired by "the opera" and that the horror genre often, "deals with the innocence of children, and their wide-eyed way into it. Both (Season 6) ideas we're working with have elements of children." Creepy children? Oh, yeah, that idea would be scary enough for most fans of the hit show.

American Horror Story has also confirmed that several other cast members would be returning as talent like Kathy Bates, Denis O'Hare, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Wes Bentley, Finn Wittrock, and Matt Bomer would be feature in season six. Lady Gaga also confirmed that she would be returning to the show following her lauded appearance in last season as The Countess.


American Horror Story will return to FX this Fall as filming headed underway earlier last week in Los Angeles, California.
