Kathy Bates may have lost her head on "American Horror Story," but now she needs to prepare for a new level of horror ... a CBS sitcom.
The Wrap reports that Bates will guest star in an upcoming episode of "Mike & Molly."
On the Melissa McCarthy sitcom, Bates will play "Kay McKinnon, a well-traveled, worldly photographer who also happens to be Peggy Biggs’ (Rondi Reed) best friend from high school." Kay and Molly (McCarthy) become fast friends, so things get heated when Peggy, Molly's mother-in-law, gets jealous over their new BFF status.
This isn't the first time Bates has ventured into sitcom territory. She won an Emmy for playing the ghost of Charlie Sheen's character on "Two and a Half Men" in 2012.
No word yet on when Bates' episode will air.
"Mike & Molly" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on CBS.
