'American Horror Story' creator Ryan Murphy has promised some "great stuff" for Kathy Bates in season 8.
Kathy Bates is officially headed back to 'American Horror Story'. The actress, who has made a name for herself within the horror genre throughout the years, partly in thanks to her brilliant role in the big screen adaptation of Stephen King novel 'Misery', will be working alongside her 'AHS' co-stars once more when the show makes its return for an eighth season.
Kathy Bates is an icon within the horror genre
Though she was a firm fan-favourite in the 'AHS' world ever since making her debut in season 3, tackling a variety of different compelling characters, Bates got an offer she couldn't refuse on Netflix original comedy series 'Disjointed' from Chuck Lorre. When that show premiered however, it was hit with a slew of negative reviews from critics, and has now been officially cancelled after just a single season.

The actress has scheduling conflicts with upcoming Netflix series Disjointed.
Having joined the critically-acclaimed FX series during its third season, horror icon Kathy Bates has played a number of roles in 'American Horror Story'. Her first was Delphine LaLaurie in 'Coven'; a slave owner who killed those she deemed less than her. She then returned in 'Freak Show' as bearded lady Ethel Darling, before taking up the role of hotel manager Iris in season 5, and becoming the Butcher in season 6, 'Roanoke'.
Kathy Bates won't be back for 'American Horror Story: Cult'
As a staple of the show, Bates' career was given a new life following her debut in 'Coven' and she has since become a household name all over again, following her terrific starring role in the movie adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel 'Misery'. Unfortunately, this time around, that won't be the case for Bates.

Gilly Hopkins is a little girl who's full of gumption and an attitude to boot. Her life - up until now - hasn't exactly been easy; she's been in and out of foster homes and doesn't let people into see the real Gilly. Having been given multiple warnings, Gilly can't find a place that she fits in and is sent to a new home with the warning that if she doesn't make this foster home work, she'll be put into a teen centre by social services. However much attitude Gilly has, she knows that a teen facility is the last place she should be.
Gilly is welcomed by an older lady named Mrs Trotter who lets her into her home. Though Mrs Trotter is friendly and has dealt with many kids in the past, Gilly takes an instant dislike to the woman and her other foster child, William, who is far younger than Gilly.
Though Gilly is cold and distant towards her new 'family', she soon learns to follow Mrs Trotter's rules and finds that her nightly meals with Trotter, William and their neighbour Mr. Randolph are periods of time she learns to enjoy.

Anyone else get nightmares after Episode 3 of Hotel?
'American Horror Story' has returned with yet more blood and supernatural horrors than ever before with 'Season 5: Hotel'. If you thought 'Freak Show' was as bizarre as it could go, you'd be wrong. And episode three 'Mommy' takes it up yet another spine-chilling notch.
Chloe Sevigny has the creepiest greeting so far in 'American Horror Story: Hotel'
So what's happened so far? Well episode one 'Checking In' saw Hotel Cortez play host to some particularly creepy, bloodthirsty forces, with the wretched, ill-fated guests being killed by flesh-eating ghost kids, raped to death by the Addiction Demon and slashed to ribbons by vampires during an orgy. Plus, Hypodermic Sally (Sarah Paulson) has fallen to her death at the hands of Donovan's (Matt Bomer) protective mother, hotel manager Iris (Kathy Bates). Naturally, events have caught the attention of Detective John Lowe (Wes Bentley).
Stet is just 11-years-old and struggling to come to terms with his mother's death. He frequently lashes out and has little discipline, but the one thing he does have a lot of is talent. An impressive singer, he is thrust into the National Boychoir Academy who accept him only on the basis that he can sing and that his father pays them well. However, he struggles to fit in with the other children, especially when it emerges that he is unable to read music. He causes fights and is frequently picked on, the school are beginning to see him as a liability, but there's an important concert coming up and Stet could prove to be their new secret weapon; all he needs is a little help. Choir master Carvelle takes him under his wing with a hard line, determined to show Stet just how great he can be.

Melissa McCarthy is clearly in a rut: the title character in this film isn't very far removed from her previous roles in The Heat and Identity Thief. Yes, Tammy is another chubby slob who is on the road to some sort of epiphany, and along the way she realises that simply running a comb through her ratty hair might make her look more human. At least the film has a seriously strong supporting cast who almost make it worth a look.
Tammy (McCarthy) is sacked from her job at a fast-food outlet on the same day she discovers that her husband (Faxon) is having a fling with a neighbour (Tony Collette). In a childish rage, she runs home to her parents (Allison Janney and Dan Aykroyd) and then decides to keep running, taking her grandmother Pearl (Sarandon) along for the ride. Pearl has a dream to see Niagara Falls before she dies, but she's just about as immature as Tammy is, so they immediately start getting into trouble. Their antics include a series of incidents involving a jet-ski, flirting and more with a father and son (Gary Cole and Mark Duplass), robbing a burger joint and attending a raucous 4th of July party at the home of Pearl's wealthy cousin (Kathy Bates).
Tammy is even less worldly wise than McCarthy's previous variations on the character: she has never even attempted to grow up, so reacts to everything like a toddler. Aside from not being remotely funny, this is deeply annoying from the start. And even the characters around her don't laugh - they roll their eyes in exasperation. Then after establishing her as a relentless loser who brings misfortune on herself, the script (written by McCarthy and her real-life husband Ben Falcone, who also directs and appears as Tammy's boss) contrives to make Tammy sympathetic by portraying her as some sort of a victim. Meanwhile, she of course slowly begins to look less cartoonish simply because she changes her shirt and takes a shower along the way.
