A selection of new pics from the upcoming premiere episode of the third season of FX's award-winning horror show 'American Horror Story: Coven' have been conjured up. The third effort which concentrates its efforts on witches and moves the action to New Orleans will no doubt be full of other genre-moulding subplots. The new pics feature stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates ('Misery'), Taissa Farmiga, Jamie Brewer, Emma Roberts ('Scream 4'), Evan Peters ('Kick-Ass') and Gabourey Sidibe. Co-stars on the new season include Sarah Paulson, Angela Bassett, Alexandra Breckenridge, Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe and Patti Lupone. The premiere episode is entitled 'Bitchcraft' and the new stills can be viewed below.
"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 in the US next Wednesday 9 October on FX at 10pm.
