In addition to announcing an October 9th premiere date, FX has now released the official story arc for “American Horror Story: Coven,” the third season of their insanely popular anthology 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.

With a cast of regulars and new recruits including Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Alexandra Breckenridge, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Jamie Brewer, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Patti Lupone, and Denis O’Hare, here’s a list of the first three episodes that begin this October.

Episode 3.01 – “Bitchcraft” (09-Oct-2013)
Episode 3.02 – “Boy Parts” (16-Oct-2013)
Episode 3.03 – “Replacements, The” (23-Oct-2013)

    That’s my first glimpse of the this teaser, and wow. I could not be more pumped for the season debut. And the cast list? Amazing.

    I LOVE it, when October rolls around, because I know more AHS is on the way! lol.

    Zombie-Killa me too! this synopsis sounds fantastic! i can’t wait!

    • Zombie-Killa

      Ha! Yes! I’m salivating at the thought of a Jessica Lange/Kathy Bates face-off!

      Seriously, though that teaser freaked me out. At first it looks like the witches are tied up, but then you see they’re floating around in the air, and that look towards the camera at the end! Yikes. lol.

    I’m hopping they’ll use “winter song” at the end credits… its awesome.

    I am so stoked, this is a wicked premise. But PLEASE end it better than the past seasons, hated the last 2 or 3 eps per season.

    So excited for this season. I LOVED the first but I didn’t even finish the second so I hope this one is amazing
