American Horror Story


It's time to get witchy.

American Horror Story: Coven debuts in exactly two weeks (Wednesday, Oct. 9) and we're already dying to see what potion of craziness Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have in store for us in season three of the FX anthology hit. To help make the wait a little more bearable (or even more unbearable, depending on how you look at it!), Coven's main title sequence has just been released and it's super, super creepy. And oddly sexy?!

"Here it is! The sexy scary main title for AHS: Coven," Murphy tweeted on Wednesday. "Can you spot the clues?"

We're too busy covering our eyes with our hands and cowering in fears to spot any clues just yet, but maybe you'll have better luck after watching the epic new opening sequence...

Listed as regulars in the opening sequence? Returning AHS players Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Francis Conroy, Lily Rabe, Denis O'Hare and Jessica Lange, as well as newbies Emma Roberts and Kathy Bates. Curiously enough, Angela Bassett and Gabourey Sidibe's names aren't featured in the sequence. File that under: Things that make us go hmmm....

Coven will tell 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 to New Orleans are now facing extinction. Not thrilled to have the ladies in the Big Easy? The voodoo witches. A war of the witches?! Yes, please!

The series will center on Miss Robichaux's Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a school that  teaches young witches (Farmiga, Roberts and Sidibe) how to protect themselves against mysterious attacks that have been plaguing their kind. Their teachers? Mother-daughter witch duo Fiona (Lange), the Supreme witch in New Orleans, and Cordelia (Paulson).We exclusively debuted the first trailer for Coven, which featured Lange in witchy action.

American Horror Story: Coven premieres Oct. 9 at 10 p.m. on FX.
