Snakes on a poster!

FX released the official art for American Horror Story: Coven today and no surprise here: It's both creepy and sexy. Which is what we're looking for when it comes to that show.

Coven, which is set to premiere Oct. 9 at 10 p.m., stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Basset and Sarah Paulson and will have a very bewitching premise, as well as a lighter look. Executive producer Tim Minear previewed the FX series during the TCA Summer Press Tour in August.

"This year is a drama, but there is a lot of humor. We are embracing a kind of velocity and fun with the series this year," he said. "This is going to be the most friendly place for women on television this year. Friendly, until we do the things we do."

The network released the official description for Coven last week:

"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 (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."

Is it October yet?
