American Horror Story has become an annual TV and social media event.

First there was The Murder House.
AHS Season 1

Then there was Asylum.
AHS Season 2

And now there is Coven.

This version of House of the Rising Sun used in the promotional video clips is eerily divine.

The third season of American Horror Story is going to be an epic tale of New Orleans witchcraft across the centuries featuring Angela Bassett as The Voodoo Queen, Jessica Lange as The Supreme and Kathy Bates as The Sadist and it looks absolutely phenomenal.

Fabulous witches.
Fabulous witches everywhere!

American Horror Story: 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, who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona, the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

What I love about American Horror Story is that each season is its own anthology, with cast members returning to play completely new characters in a completely new story each season. For its third season, it (apparently…) loses some familiar faces to the series, but gains some amazing and stellar new faces who are without a doubt an inspired and amazing cast.
