Many rumors have circulated online about the plot for the upcoming third season of the television horror show "American Horror Story" and show co-creator Ryan Murphy has finally confirmed the speculation. On Saturday, March 16 The Huffington Post reported that the new season will have the subtitle "Coven" and tell the story of a group of witches. Filming is expected to take place in New Orleans and the show will premiere this fall.
Fans of the suspenseful FX drama "American Horror Story" have witnessed the crazy antics of the Harmon family in the season one subtitle "Murder House" and the terrible realities of Briarcliff sanitarium and its residents in the season two subtitle "Asylum" which finished airing last January.
Cast member Dylan McDermott recently hinted that witches would be the focus of the new season, which Murphy confirmed, and mentioned the witches story was in the works for several years. Other returning cast members include Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, and Francis Conroy. Taissa Farmiga will also return for season three, after not receiving a role in season two.
"Misery" actress Kathy Bates recently joined the cast as a rival to Lange's character in season three. Lange is expected to play a much less sinister character, while Murphy recently revealed that the role Bates will play is especially horrible. Lange and Bates will be major characters in "Coven" and will have plenty of scenes together. "American Horror Story: Coven" will air on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. on FX sometime this fall.
