If Ryan Murphy ever decides to create an expanded universe between
, look back at Sunday’s Comic-Con panel for the two shows as the starting point.
The casts of both series came face to face as the
stars (Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, and Matt Bomer) were joined on stage by the
stars (Jamie Lee Curtis, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Skyler Samuels, Keke Palmer, Abigail Breslin, and Billie Lourd) for a Hall H panel moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s own Tim Stack.

cast revealed their character names for the upcoming fifth season of the FX anthology horror series: Matt Bomer will play Donovan, Kathy Bates is Iris, Angela Bassett stars as Ramona, Evan Peters takes the role of Mr. March, and Sarah Paulson will bring Hypodermic Sally to villainous life.
Here are some highlights from the rest of the panel:
—A horror queen and her famous fan tell all: Jamie Lee Curtis, who is known for playing Laurie Strode in the
films, revealed why this was her first time attending Comic-Con. “I’ve been selling yogurt that makes you sh-t for six years,” she quipped. Murphy was extremely excited to have her aboard. “If you’re going to hire Jamie Lee Curtis, you want to see her kicking ass and fighting back and all those things that I loved her doing,” Murphy said. “I’m actually writing a scene now where she’s fighting three killers.”

—Who’s the killer? Not even the actors know, Murphy said. The cast was kept in the dark for the sorority scare; every actor had to film a take in which their character was the serial killer. And not everyone will die, either. The show won’t reboot
—Lady Gaga wanted to go bad: Murphy says there won’t be musical numbers in
, despite Gaga’s musical background. She will, however, be going bad. She wrote to Murphy saying that she wanted to be on the show and that she wanted to be evil. He accepted, of course, and said, “Okay, you came to the right place.”
