“American Horror Story” is welcoming back another one of its original stars, this time one that seduced viewers back in 2011.

Actress Alexandra Breckenridge has joined the A-list cast of the witchy-themed “American Horror Story: Coven,” co-creator Ryan Murphy announced Friday via Twitter, and first reported by THR.

Breckenridge was a regular part of the freshman season of the FX anthology, playing young Moira opposite Frances Conroy. The latter actress also recently booked a return for “Coven.”

While little is known about “Coven,” producers said at PaleyFest in March that the series would again search for haunted places in America. Murphy previously told the site that the next installment would feature three characters playing real people, with co-star Kathy Bates being one of them.

Breckenridge joins a rapidly growing cast of all-stars including Denis O’Hare, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Gabourey Sidibe, Bates and returning players Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy and Lily Rabe.

“Coven” premieres this October.
