American Horror Story Coven SpoilersAmerican Horror Story: Coven no doubt left you with visions of bull-head-wearing slaves and soul-sucking witches dancing in your head. So, before you try nodding off after viewing such nightmarish images, allow us to present you with a cauldron full of spoilery, jaw-dropping twists to come this season, courtesy of scoop-happy executive producer Ryan Murphy.

QUESTION | The premiere feels a bit lighter than anything seen in Horror Story seasons past. Was that intentional?
Last year was so dark and grim and hard, but I loved it. But this year was designed to be scary, make no doubt, but more fun. I heard a lot last year, ‘I love it but it’s hard to sit through.’ So I wanted this year to be easier to sit through. A little more light in tone.

QUESTION | What’s the dynamic between Jessica and Kathy’s characters moving forward?

American Horror Story Coven’s Newest Teaser, “Coffin” Is Here – So Are New Plot Points!

This a creepy one… watch American Horror Story Coven teaser #5 right here!

What secrets do we keep that you thought were asleep?

 

Better yet, an official synopsis has been released, and it’s a fucking doozy… wrap your mind around how awesome THIS will be!

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 (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica 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.*

You’re goddamned right she will! It’s also being called a Voodoo VS. Witchcraft showdown.

Watch Unsettling Teaser #2 For American Horror Story Coven – Hint About LaLaurie Storyline?

YIKES. This one is titled “Pins and Needles”.  We’re guessing it’s hinting at the very hideous real-life Delphine LaLaurie storyline and what’s in her attic (although many areas of the LaLaurie mansion were very dangerous, scary places to be, especially if you were a slave – she kept her kitchen slaves chained to the stove). Watch below… be warned, this one’s unnerving.

The third season, (or Volume Three, as Ryan Murphy refers to the seasons) premieres on October 9th, 2013. The season premiere is titled “Bitchcraft”. Jessica Lange plays a witch named Fiona, Sarah Paulson plays her daughter Cordelia*, Angela Bassett plays Marie Laveau, and Kathy Bates plays Delphine LaLaurie. Oh, and Alexandra Breckenridge (Young Moira from Season One) will also be making a return appearance–as a new character, of course. Damn! This just keeps getting better and better… more teasers are sure to follow soon!

Damn RIGHT, viewer discretion advised!
