Lady Gag, American Horror Story - pag 2

The "Born This Way" hitmaker, who appeared to be genuinely surprised and taken aback, thanked each of her cast members by name for helping her to "shine." She also gave thanks to Murphy and her family.

So far Gaga and Angela Bassett are the only members of the "American Horror Story" acting troupe who are confirmed to return next season.

Major details about season 6 are being kept under wraps, but like season 5, season 6 will also have a dual time frame.

Speaking at the Television Critics Association winter press tour in Pasadena, Calif., last January, FX Network president and general manager John Landgraf revealed to reporters that season 6 will be "set in the present" with "echoes of the past" mixed in.

"It's set in two time periods but principally in the present," he said.
