YES! Angela Bassett Joins ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’

Great news! Oh, and if you missed it, Evan Peters, Wes Bentley, and Chloë Sevigny will also return. For those who were not thrilled by the announcement about Lady Gaga appearing in American Horror Story Season 5, AKA American Horror Story Hotel, don’t panic. This is an ensemble cast, and she will not be replacing Jessica Lange as the lead. I doubt they’d give her a meatier role than, say, Kathy Bates. We’re not huge fans, but we’re also willing to give Gaga a fair chance. Meanwhile, keep on hoping that Lily Rabe, who we really missed last season (though getting to see her play Sister Mary Eunice again in the episode “Orphans” was almost worth her only being in one episode) will sign on to return! Also, we kind of miss Zach Quinto…

TVLine

Plenty of familiar faces populate the new teaser for American Horror Story: Coven — making it pretty clear who’ll be counted among the FX’s creepsterpiece’s witchy women — but a certain bovine one may be starring in your nightmares for the rest of the week.

The network has unveiled a new 30-second trailer titled “Initiation” and it looks like AHS vet Jessica Lange, along with newcomers Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates, will be Coven‘s chief cauldron-stirrers.

Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe and more also pop up in the new campaign. AHS: Coven premieres October 9 at 10/9c.

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.

Mark those calendars: “American Horror Story: Coven” will premiere on Wednesday, October 9th at 10pm.

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!

Screen shot 2013-08-07 at 10.36.47 PM

Damn RIGHT, viewer discretion advised!

*a reference to King Lear, rather than Buffy/Angel’s Cordelia Chase. I miss that Cordelia.

Interview: Sarah Paulson On The Twisty Second Season of American Horror Story – Spoilers (From The A.V. Club)

I came  across the interview with Sarah Paulson on evening of the American Horror Story  Asylum finale on The Onion A.V. Club by Todd VanDerWerff (who also impressively reviewed every episode of the season, and I agreed with him the majority of the time). It’s the most in-depth print interview I’ve found with her about Season Two/American Horror Story Asylum, and even though this season is wrapped, I can’t recommend it enough. Click on the big red link below to check it out.

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 Horror Story Asylum Recap: Whatever Happened To Happily Ever After? “Continuum” Episode 12 – EW.com

OK, when my weekly piece on Episode 11, “Spilt Milk” is this late, and the season finale is less than 24 hours away, I’ve accepted the unfortunate fact that I’m going to have to skip “Ten (Depressing) Things We Learned From American Horror Story Episode 12, Continuum,” because it’s that or skip Episode 11, which is pretty much impossible to skip. It may be a couple weeks late, goddamnit, but I ain’t skipping it.

Instead I wanted to find the best possible recap and post THAT, which I’ve done here. Jeff Jensen picked up on things I managed to miss after multiple viewings, so give it a read! Click the link below, and check out the comprehensive EW.com recap for “Continuum” – well worth your time.
