Something wicked this way comes!

You thought you were excited to hear that Gabourey Sidibe was joining American Horror Story's third season, which is subtitled Coven? Well, we're pretty sure she's even more excited!

The Oscar nominee visitedE! News today to chat with Giuliana Rancic and Terrence Jenkins about her witchy new role—and talk about The Big C's final episodes!

"I'm so excited and I could not wait to tell the world because it's one of my favorite shows," Sidibe gushes of joining the FX series.

Alas, Sidibe wasn't able to provide us much scoop on what Ryan Murphy has in store for season three, saying, "I know nothing. The news just sort of came in two weeks ago...I have not seen a script at all. I know it shoots in New Orleans!"

Sidibe has just one request when it comes to her time on AHS: "I hope I don't die first!"

We wish her luck with that!

Watch the clip and tune into E! News tonight at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m. to hear more from Gabourey !
