FX's third season of its hit horror series is ramping up. Production on 'American Horror Story: Coven' is well underway over in New Orleans and the next season has scored another new cast member to join its gang of returning players. 'Scream 4' star Emma Roberts (below) has signed on to play a new character named Madison who is being described as "a self-involved party girl". The role is particularly handy for Roberts as she is currently dating 'American Horror Story' actor Evan Peters ('Kick-Ass') so trailer tonsil tennis will be a welcome distraction for the young pair. Kathy Bates ('Misery'), Gabourey Sidibe ('Precious'), Angela Bassett ('Olympus Has Fallen') and Patti Lupone also join in with the returning cast members that include Peters, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Sarah Paulson and Frances Conroy.
'American Horror Story: Coven' will premiere on FX this October and conclude in January 2014. Now we can sit and wait for one of the most anticipated factors of the new season. The opening credit sequence!
