Two more ladies have joined the Coven

Angela Bassett and Patti Lupone have joined the cast of American Horror Story's highly-anticipated third season, which is subtitled Coven and centers on, you guessed it, witches.

Creator Ryan Murphy tweeted the big casting news, writing, "Two legends are joining the cast of American Horror Story: Coven -- Oscar nominee Angela Bassett and Tony winner Patti LuPone!"

In typical AHS fashion, details on their characters are being kept underwraps, but they join fellow new cast members Gabourey Sidibe and Kathy Bates for the FX anthology series' third season, which will film on location in New Orleans. 

Jessica Lange,Evan Peters, Lily RabeFrances ConroySarah Paulson and Taissa Farmiga are all confirmed to return for season three.

Murphy recently teased Coven as "a really cool story we've been talking about for a couple of years. So we're going to do that."

We can't wait to see it.
