Third Season of ‘American Horror Story’ Gets Title

1

Jessica-Lange-American-Horror-StoryOne of the great treasures on television is FX’s hit show “American Horror Story.” Though slightly underachieved compared to the first season, “American Horror Story: Asylum” featured an interesting story arc along with terrific performances from Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Emmy Award Winner Jessica Lange.

Creator Ryan Murphy has just announced that the third season will be titled, “American Horror Story: Coven.” Murphy said the third season will focus on witches and span between different time periods. It’s safe to assume that we’ll be making a trip to Salem during the witch trials at some point during the season run.

With season favorites set to return like Lange, Paulson, and Rabe, the third season will also reunite Evan Peters with Taissa Farmiga along with Frances Conroy, who were all integral parts of the first season’s success. It was also announced a few weeks ago that Academy Award Winner Kathy Bates will have a recurring role this year as Jessica Lange’s best friend turned enemy. Murphy has stated that Bates’ character will be “five times worse than her Misery character” and is also inspired by a “true event.”

The third season is scheduled to premiere sometime in the fall with principal photography set to begin in Summer 2013.
