“AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN” Teaser: We’re off to Witch Boarding School
This is the most anticipated television show of the season.
Boarding school horror, bullpeople, and the supremely tall Supremes collide in the latest teaser for AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN, the first of which to feature the actual ensemble cast of the piece. This is it guys. I have little left to say before this premieres other than to restate just how stoked I am. The massive design, the small details (that buck in the corner, the masks), the consistent insanity that AMERICAN HORROR STORY revels in applied to witches.
AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN stars Jessica Lange, Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe and more. In the series, “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.”
Bassett is playing real life Voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau, while Bates essays New Orleans socialite serial killer Delphine LaLaurie. AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN premieres Wednesday, October 9.
