October is almost here which means two things. A new season of “American Horror Story” and I can finally listen to Christmas music (hey, don’t judge me, it is a miracle I waited this long.) With “American Horror Story: Coven” just a few weeks away from premiering, FX has posted the opening credits sequence online.
The upcoming third season of the show will see the return of several actors from the previous seasons including Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, Taissa Farmiga, and Lily Rabe. It will also see the addition of Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Patti LuPone, and Emma Roberts.
“Coven” tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.
“American Horror Story: Coven” will premiere on FX on October 9th. You can watch the opening below:
