If you haven’t been sufficiently frightened enough by ‘American Horror Story’, the third season which explores the history of witches in this country, is just around the corner.

The show’s ensemble cast includes Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Denis O’Hare, Patti LuPone, Evans Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe and Emma Roberts.

Like previous seasons of ‘American Horror Story’ this will be a self-contained miniseries, consisting of 13 episodes. To give you an idea of what Season 3 will bring, you can view the official poster to the left.  (Ew!) It’s Voodoo vs. witchcraft and in true ‘American Horror Story’ style, it will be a crazy season!

Here is the official synopsis:

‘American Horror Story: 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.”

Along with a new one sheet, FX has released the 5th teaser trailer for the upcoming season:

‘American Horror Story: Coven’ premieres on Wednesday, October 9th on FX.
