‘American Horror Story: Coven’ first teaser unveiled — VIDEO

Oh, fuck YEAH! Bring on more teasers! Creepy as hell… and let’s keep our fingers crossed that “House of the Rising Sun” is the recurring piece of music they use this season. It’s perfect. The premiere date we were given by another source (Dread Central) is October 9th — COME AND GET US, American Horror Story Coven!

AAAARGH, just did the math and realized they’re only in pre-production! How are we supposed to wait until October, dammit?


‘American Horror Story: Coven’: Kathy Bates To Star In Season 3, Featuring Witches And Filming In New Orleans

Yes, we realize this is the third piece in a row covering this, but it revealed what the clue Murphy teased in Episode Ten was (which Murphy said would be “given in a medium we haven’t ever done”, leading us to consider styles of shooting and other things way off base, rather than a simple song choice) in the tenth episode, “The Name Game” was:

Many “American Horror Story” fans had speculated that the Salem Witch Trials or New Orleans’ witchcraft and voodoo would be the subject of Season 3 after Murphy told viewers there was a hint about the upcoming season in the “American Horror Story: Asylum” episode, titled “The Name Game.” When a jukebox in the rec room played the 1950s classic “I Put A Spell On You,” many audience members bet (correctly) on bewitching.

-Laura Prodom, Huffington Post Online

We hadn’t even thought of it, possibly because most of the episode had us levitating (not to mention jaw-dropper after jaw-dropper). Yes, the first song played on the new jukebox for Briarcliff Manor’s day room was announced loudly and proudly by Sister Mary Demon to be specially dedicated to Judy Martin. Then the opening to “I Put A Spell On You” began as Dr. Thredson/Bloody Face entered the day room, to the horror of Lana and Kit.

Remember the song that played  in the next episode the jukebox and Jude were featured together in? We do! It was “Love Potion #9″. Murphy had teased there’d be another hint in the episode “Spilt Milk”, and we’re going to go out on a limb here that was it.

‘American Horror Story: Coven’: Kathy Bates To Star In Season 3, Featuring Witches And Filming In New Orleans.


While you’re at it, check out the video (also within the HuffPost piece) of Jessica Lange on The View containing clips where she talks about what she knows re: Season 3 (before the title “Coven” was revealed, that is).

OK, so, eight months to go! We can’t WAIT and will be sure to get any new info up as soon as we hear about it. Any other fans want to speculate below, go to town!

Meanwhile, enjoy this awesome music video of Screaming Jay Hawkins performing the shit out of “I Put A Spell On You” below.  Not perfect picture quality, but it’s Screamin’ Jay at the top of his game. ONE! TWO! THREE!

American Horror Story Season 3 Subtitle Will Put A Spell On You!

Well how about that? Our predictions on the Delphine Laurent/New Orléans/Voodoo theme were wildly inaccurate! OK, not 100%, since filming is set on location in New Orléans and they didn’t rule out voodoo, but America Horror Story: Coven isn’t what we had our money on. This is still going to rock, though, and I have faith in Murphy and Falchuck to deliver a kick-ass Season 3 of American Horror Story. How about some old-fashioned curses? We will go out on a limb and predict that even though it’s only rumored now, Dylan McDermott will be in the guest cast for next season. That signature, iconic monster being female? We can’t wait to hear more!

This Just In! Kathy Bates Officially Signed For American Horror Story Season 3 (VS. Jessica Lange)

Jessica Lange was dropping hints earlier about a female Oscar-winning actress joining their cast, which only narrowed it down to about fifty women, so that kind of went to our mental back-burner. Now we know!

Screen shot 2013-02-28 at 5.25.06 AM

The article also says she’ll play Lange’s (well, her character, obviously, not Lange herself) best friend who turns into her arch-enemy. OoooooooOOO!  In January, Ryan Murphy teased that there would be a female character that’d be the most evil, malignant, vile, dangerous–OK, we’re running out of adjectives here, but we have previous pieces exclusively from EW.com with Ryan where he teases S3 that you can check out linked to  here, over here, and hereAmerican Horror Story character he’s created yet. Going up against competition like Constance Langdon, Hadleigh (Ben Harmon’s young mistress, the nastiest, most murderous female ghost in Season One’s “Murder House”), and the possessed version of Sister Mary Eunice, that’s a pretty tall order. We’re looking forward to Murphy meeting and exceeding our expectations as usual on that front.

Could Bates be the one playing the most evil, dangerous bitch to terrorize American Horror Story thus far?  He’s said Jessica Lange won’t be playing anyone especially wholesome, but a glamorous performer whose character would be campy, sexy and fun (and always dressed to kill** in full beauty make-up and “blown-out” hair).  He’s already done the campy but horrible, sneaky murderous thing with Constance, so now we’re narrowing it down. Our theory is still that the characters are going to play some kind of performers. Either way, we’ll keep you posted on new details as they develop on Season 3 of AHS!

*he hinted at Vera Farminga playing her, but he’s been known to veer wildly when dropping hints; also Farminga was, at the time, still being wooed by Murphy and Co to return, and he said there were no promises of her returning. She’s since been officially signed and on board for S3.

**just metaphorically this time around, at least according to Murphy.

It’s Official! Lily Rabe Signs on For ‘American Horror Story’ Season 3 (CraveOnline)

It’s not official (yet, keep your fingers crossed) that Taissa Farmiga will return for Season 3 of American Horror Story (the word is she’s “officially in talks”, so we’ll keep you posted. Click the big red link below for the entire scoop from CraveOnline.com…

Lily Rabe Has Signed on For ‘American Horror Story’ Season Three – CraveOnline.


The lovely Ms. Lily Rabe, though, will be back!  Now our fingers are crossed for Zach Quinto. Haven’t heard much yet, but he’s very, very close with Sarah Paulson (also officially signed), so maybe we’ll see them work together again. We know we wouldn’t be the only ones who’d definitely love to see Frances Conroy return, as well. Maybe this time she can play a really evil woman…  whatever Ryan Murphy tries, we have faith he’ll make it work!

‘American American Horror Story Asylum – Ryan Murphy Talks Season Finale, (SPOILERS) Plus Even ‘More Ambitious’ Season 3 — EW.Com EXCLUSIVE by Tim Stack

OK, my eyes are still red from crying after the Sister Jude segment–I had to pause the TV for over five minutes before I could even fast-forward to the next act*, so I’ll hold off on writing more myself for now–and EW.com‘s Tim Stack has a ton of exclusive info from Ryan Murphy. Oooh, can’t wait till Season 3. This finale, though, was perfect… and the last scene gave me chills. Click the link for some REALLY interesting (and thoughtful) scoop from EW.com!
