Are you ready to be scared out of your seat again? The wait will soon be over as FX’s ‘American Horror Story’ series of miniseries resumes with its latest installment ‘Coven’ on October 9th.
Over the past few weeks, FX has been titillating fans with a number of vague, yet creepy, promos, as well as that frighteningly phallic snake poster. Finally, the network has decided to stop playing so coy and has released a new poster featuring Jessica Lange and other cast members as well as two new videos. One is another stylized promo video, but this one showcases the all-star cast. The other is a traditional “commercial” made up of random clips from the show, which sets up the premise.
And speaking of that all-star cast, they are led by the previously mentioned Oscar, Emmy and Golden Globe award winner Jessica Lange, along with her fellow Emmy and Golden Globe winning Kathy Bates; Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominated Angela Bassett; Emmy Award nominated Sarah Paulson; Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy nominated Frances Conroy; Oscar and Golden Globe award nominated Gabourey Sidibe; Emmy Award nominated Denis O’Hare; Emmy Award nominated Patti LuPone; Evan Peters; Taissa Farmiga; Lily Rabe; and Emma Roberts. That’s quite a pedigree right there!

Does this get you pumped for the new season?
Finally, here is a new poster that showcases Lange and her students at her witches’ boarding school.
Here is FX’s official description of the show:
“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.
The newest incarnation of ‘American Horror Story’ begins October 9th at 9 pm eastern on FX.
