Lady Gaga's vampiric American Horror Story: Hotel character, The Countess, is featured in new photos from EW, one of which shows The Countess with her "brood of bloodsucking children."

Hot on the heels of unleashing their American Horror Story: Hotel photos yesterday, EW is back with a new batch (see below) focused on Lady Gaga as The Countess, "a glamorous but deadly creature who sustains on a healthy diet of sex and blood." One photo in particular that stands out shows The Countess sitting next to three blood-slurping children, who The Countess has "kidnapped / adopted."

With popularity for FX's American Horror Story continuing to rise, showrunner Ryan Murphy told EW that airing two seasons—one in the fall and one in the spring—in the timespan of one year in the near future (beginning in 2016) could possibly happen. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates on American Horror Story: Hotel, which debuts Wednesday, October 7th on FX.
