‘American Horror Story: Coven’ Walks Out Another Witchy Teaser, Full Cast Poster
Late last night we caught our first real look at ‘American Horror Story: Coven‘ by way of a new trailer that featured actual footage from the October 9 premiere and beyond, so how better to supplement that sneak peek than with another creepy teaser, chock full of witch-walking? At the very least, we’ve got a full look at the official cast poster for ‘American Horror Story: Coven’!
The latest “WitchWalk” teaser from the upcoming Ryan Murphy horror-drama’s third cycle proves surprisingly literal, as the sharply dressed witch practitioners strut their stuff around the New Orleans landscape, showing off the dank yet mesmerizing locale for the action to come this year. Or maybe they’re on their way to a Robert Palmer video audition, who can say?
Meanwhile, FX has relased the full-length cast poster for the year, featuring a smug Jessica Lange fire lit from behind while the rest of the cast levitates in time out. Because of magic! From the official logline for the season:
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.
So far, we know that the third season of Ryan Murphy’s breakout horror hit will move back and forth between both present and 1830s New Orleans in a battle between witches and voodoo, details of which have emerged for the first few episodes. ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will also welcome newcomers Danny Huston, Christine Ebersole, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Leslie Jordan and Gabourey Sidibe, along with returning franchise regulars Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckinridge, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
