‘American Horror Story’ Season 3: Meet the Cast in Official ‘Coven’ Portraits

American Horror Story Season 3 Coven Cast Photos
FX

Less than two weeks to go until the premiere of ‘American Horror Story: Coven,’ and the FX horror-drama is holding little back compared with last year’s ‘Asylum.’ Where yesterday the official opening credits for the season made their way out, today brings our first full look at the new cast of characters populating the ‘Coven,’ including our first looks at some returning favorites.

In addition to the ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ cast portraits, we also get our first look at the returning Frances Conroy, among others who had up to now only been glimpsed in the brief trailers. It certainly looks as if darkness and shadow will play heavily into the season, much as we saw with the spooky opening titles last night. But what do the colors symbolize, we wonder?

While we wait for the October 9 premiere, we know that the third season of Ryan Murphy’s breakout horror hit will move back and forth between both present and 1830s New Orleans in a battle between witches and voodoo, details of which have emerged for the first few episodes. ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will also welcome newcomers Danny Huston, Christine Ebersole, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Leslie Jordan and Gabourey Sidibe, along with returning franchise regulars Jessica Lange, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckinridge, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.
