‘AHS: Coven’ gets a release date + a new teaser!

American Horror Story: Coven

It’s almost the end of summer, which means it’s about time for a new season of FX’s Emmy-nominated show American Horror Story to get underway. So with that respect, The A/V Club has new details on American Horror Story: Coven as well as an official October 9th release date …

Coven concerns the descendants of witches who escaped the Salem trials, young girls who—in order to defend themselves against a growing tide of attacks against their kind—head to a special school in New Orleans, where getting “suspended” is literal, apparently. Among them is returning AHS first season star Taissa Farmiga as Fiona, “harboring a terrifying secret” that goes beyond already being a witch, and Jessica Lange as “the Supreme,” the coven’s “glamour cat” leader who returns after a long absence to protect them at whatever cost, even if it means swanning about and saying witheringly bitchy things.

So basically, it’s like an American version of Hogwarts? I’m cool with that. Anyway, here’s a brand-new teaser for American Horror Story: Coven, which once again features girls hovering (is this going to be a thing?) to the tune of Sara Bareilles and Ingrid Michaelson‘s “Winter Song.”

5. Coffin
What secrets do we keep that you thought were asleep?

1. Pins & Needles
Because “pinning” on the internet is all the rage …
