Bates joins the show after most recently winning a pair of Emmy nominations for the first two seasons of NBC’s Harry’s Law, which was cancelled last May.

American Horror Story series alums Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, and Lily Rabe are set to return for the horror anthology’s third cycle.

Creator Ryan Murphy told EW on season 3, “What we’re doing is more ambitious than what we’ve ever done.” He added, “This one will be shot on location in three different cities in the country.”
