Lady Gaga will return to American Horror Story for its sixth season, but most likely in a new role.

When asked by New York radio station Z100 if she would return to the series, the actress and singer said simply, "yes". But offered no details.

"I can't promise you how or when or anything like that," she said.

Gaga played The Countess in season five, for which she won a Golden Globe.

If she does return to the show, created by Ryan Murphy, it will most likely be in a different role.

American Horror Story is an anthology that keeps many of the same actors from series to series, but changes up themes and characters.

The award-winning show was renewed for season six in November.

FX is yet to confirm Gaga's return.
