Mother Monster is at the front desk.

For the umpteenth time, Jessica Lange will not be back for season five of American Horror Story.

The 65-year-old actress made things official on Sunday at an AHS PaleyFest panel.

“Yes, I’m done… We’ve had a great run here. I mean, I absolutely love doing these four characters, and in all the madness, I love the writers and Ryan [Murphy] and in the insanity of shooting it.” [via Deadline]

Lange’s four seasons with the Ryan Murphy show has earned her two Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. She most recently played ringmaster Elsa Mars (and covered a Lana Del Rey song) in AHS: Freak Show.

Sunday’s panel also introduced two new cast members to the AHS: Hotel family: Matt Bomer and Cheyenne Jackson, who are both Murphy alum from their work on The Normal Heart and Glee, respectively.

“I can’t confirm or deny that there might be a love interest,” Bomer told the PaleyFest crowd of what he’ll do opposite the previously announced Hotel star, Lady Gaga.

Here are the newbies making the announcement on Twitter:

American Horror Story: Hotel is slated for an October 2015 premiere.
