"American Horror Story" creator Ryan Murphy has said the new season, called "Coven," is going to be lighter than past installments. You can't tell that from the main title sequence.
Murphy posted a video of the opening Thursday morning on YouTube, and it is just caa-reepy as all those teasers we've been seeing. Check it out and tell me what you think.
"American Horror Story: Coven" premieres at 9 p.m. CT Oct. 9 on FX.
It stars Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Denis O'Hare. Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts, Patti LuPone and Jamie Brewer.
Here's FX's bit about the show, and check out my previous posts listed in the related items on the left of this page to learn more.
"American Horror Story: 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 (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica 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.
Update: FX has just released two more teasers, titled Study Hall and Hair Don't.
Study Hall: Our favorite subject? Spelling.
Hair Don't: This fall, prepare for your hair to stand on end...
