This fall, the witching hour will be upon us when Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s horror anthology series returns with ‘American Horror Story: Coven’. The show returns to FX in about a month and the network has been releasing a series of teasers to promote the new season. And of course in the show’s typical fashion, these promos have used the tactic of shock and awe to draw it’s viewers in. Now, in the latest promotional video, we actually get a glimpse of the amazing cast in addition to all that other weird stuff.

Set to the familiar and very eerie tune of ‘House of the Rising Sun’, the new teaser titled ‘Initiation’ features similar bizarre imagery as the other promos that we’ve already seen for the show, but this time the video is scattered with the faces of stars Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Jessica Lange, and more. You can check it out below thanks to Collider, followed by the show’s 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, who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona, 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’ starring Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckenridge, Patti LuPone, Gabourey Sidibe, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, and Lily Rabe premieres on October 9, 2013 at 10:00pm on FX.
