AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN hits tomorrow night and here’s hoping it starts with a bang and gives us everything we’ve been waiting for. After an exemplary second season that catapulted the show into true horror-dom (yes, I made that up, I’m a professor of horrorology, I can do that!), I have nothing but high hopes and expectations for the third. To celebrate, keep reading after the break for three new teasers. American Horror Story: Coven Premieres Wednesday, October 9 at 10p only on FX, starring Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe, Patti LuPone, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckenridge, and Jamie Brewer.
In the new season a young girl, Zoe, is shattered to discover she possesses a strange genetic affliction tracing back to the dark days of Salem. Zoe is whisked away to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a mysterious school in New Orleans devoted to safeguarding the few remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline. Harboring a secret agenda, Fiona Goode, the most powerful witch of their generation, returns to town, reigniting old rivalries with the Coven’s deadly enemies, the Voodoo.
