Finally we have some more to go on for the latest season of horror offerings from FX's hit genre show 'American Horror Story: Coven'.

Now a new official synopsis for the season has arrived spilling some more welcome deets about the mysterious third entry. Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Alexandra Breckenridge, Evan Peters ('Kick-Ass'), Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga (below), Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe, Gabourey Sidibe, Jamie Brewer, Emma Roberts ('Scream 4') and Patti Lupone all star in the new season. Check out the full plot breakdown below.
"'Coven' tells 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 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 (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."
'American Horror Story: Coven' premieres on FX on 9 October.
