[TV] Everyone From Season 1 Wants To Be Back On “American Horror Story: Coven”


Maybe I’m not the only one who likes “American Horror Story: Coven” more than the prior installment, “Asylum.” It feels like a lot of Season 1 actors are lobbying to return to the show. First it was Dylan McDermott, and now Connie Britton (who played McDermott’s wife Vivien in the first season) has expressed a desire to come back in some capacity.

She tells Rolling Stone, ““I’m like, ‘I’ll put that on and jump on a plane and go to New Orleans. Yes, I would do that. As long as we can figure it out with both productions, I’m in. I hope it happens.

I wouldn’t get your hopes up. It sounds like she was asked sort of a pie-eyed question and is giving sort of a “fun” answer. Even if “Coven” is still shooting, I imagine that they have their season arc pretty much nailed down. Though it does seem they like to improvise!

“American Horror Story: Coven” stars Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Kathy Bates, Gabourey Sidibe, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Emma Roberts, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckenridge, Christine Ebersole, Danny Huston and Lily Rabe.

    I’ve been dying for her to come back

    same here! i love Connie. she’s an excellent actress and she also just happens to be GORGEOUS! please powers that be have Britton return. although i’d rather her return for a role in next season. this season is IMO full enough. as it is right now, there’s not enough screen time for the main cast/supporting cast.

    I love her. I really hope they can fit her in somewhere this season. She’s awesome.

  • DarrelDreadful

    She should play Madison’s money hungry mother. Problem solved. Now come back to us Connie, we’ve been waiting your return.

      Her AND McDermott as Hollywood parents!

    Haven’t they already finished filming the season? Every time I see a comment like this from a star I take it as a sign they’re coming back for sure. (That’s not a bad thing at all.)

    • DarrelDreadful

      According to one of the main cast members instagram photos, they are still filming this season. And if Im not mistaken, the other seasons also were filmed even when the show was airing. I guess they like to have that open space to improvise some things if someone gets some new ideas.

    I agree with you Evan. Coven is much better than Asylum, though has yet to impress me as much as the first season. Asylum was so crammed full of subplots it completely ruined the season.

    Season 3 is slowly becoming my favorite season so far.
