In addition to some burning hot art, are you ready for some new footage from “American Horror Story: Coven“? FX released a new 30-second promo that shows a ton of footage, including star Jessica Lange as one of the season’s “wicked witches.” Will she burn at the stake?
“The only thing you have to be afraid of is me,” Fiona, the Supreme witch in New Orleans, tells the school’s four remaining students, before flinging two of them against the wall with a mere flick of her wrist, explains E!.
But maybe she’s also a good witch? They add that, in addition to disciplining the young witches, Fiona is protecting them as well. “You girls need to learn how to fight. When witches don’t fight, we burn,” she tells the girls, including Taissa Farmiga’s character Zoe, the school’s latest recruit who is harboring a deep secret, tough Queenie (Sidibe) and troublemaker Madison (Roberts). Cue a shot of a witch (Why hello, Lily Rabe!) being burned at the stake.
This season looks incredible.
Updated with an extended look at the “Initiation” promo, too!
“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.
