While still close to a month before the premiere of ‘American Horror Story: Coven,’ the FX horror drama’s third outing hasn’t proven shy about delivering character details and photos from the Emmy-winning Ryan Murphy series. The latest ‘Coven’ roundup brings new photos of Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett‘s historically-based characters, along with a breakdown of the younger generation harnessing their magical abilities at witch school!

Via Entertainment Weekly, the new photos give our closest look yet at Bates’ character Madame Delphine LaLaurie, historically known for torturing her slaves, as Coven’s version will see the villain using slave blood as wrinkle cream (ick), and sparring with Bassett’s voodoo queen Marie Laveau.

Meanwhile in the present, age-defying “supreme” witch Fiona (Jessica Lange) returns to New Orleans from her lavish life in LA, overseeing the Miss Robichaux’s Academy development of teen prodigy Madison (Emma Roberts), Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe), the mysterious Nan (Jamie Brewer), and shy-type Zoe (Taissa Farmiga). True to love story form, Evan Peters will play Kyle, a member of a Tulane frat interested in Zoe.

While we wait for the October 9 premiere, we know that the third season will pit witches against voodoo in both present and 1830s New Orleans to tell the story. ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will also welcome newcomers Danny Huston, Christine Ebersole, Patti LuPone, and Leslie Jordan, along with returning franchise regulars Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckinridge, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, and Sarah Paulson.

Get another look at ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ below, and tell us in the comments if you thing ‘Coven’ will be the scariest year yet!
