WATCH: The First Scene from ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ Is Here

Commence the countdown: the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel is one week away.

And even better, here’s our first sneak peak of the show, released on Fox last night during Scream Queens just for our viewing pleasure. It’s just enough to whet our appetite for the sexy, haunted trouble that’s brewing in the walls, the mattresses, the stairwells, and every other cranny of the Hotel Cortez.

Wes Bentley, who plays LAPD detective John Lowe investigating the Cortez’s murders, is seen laying down on the bed in Room 64, which we all know by now was the former office of the hotel’s builder, James March (Evan Peters). Max Greenfield, described as a “Hollywood junkie” by Ryan Murphy, is the troubling poor (dead?) soul underneath the bed…

We didn’t see any Gaga in this clip, but no fretting. Her blood-sucking, non-vampire but immortal character has been heavily promoted to our delight.

As they say in Murphy’s land: “It’s The Countess’ world. We’re just dying in it.”

This season also stars Sarah Paulson, Cheyenne Jackson, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Matt Bomer and more.

AHS: Hotel premieres Oct. 7.
