For as much as we've enjoyed 'American Horror Story: Coven''s witchy woes over the dreary depression of 'Asylum' and the domestically disturbed first season, we've certainly missed a few past season stars who have yet to sign on for another round. 'Asylum' had Dylan McDermott as a surprise guest, but will Connie Britton put on a witch hat for 'American Horror Story: Coven'?

On this week's all-new episode of 'American Horror Story: Coven,' we meet the enigmatic and previously hidden Council of Witchcraft, who visit the school to investigate the death of Madison. Meanwhile, Fiona's visit to Marie Laveau has rekindled a decades-old war between the Salem witches and the Voodoo queen. Also this week: Spalding attends a tea party!
On tonight's new episode of 'American Horror Story: Coven,' Madison discovers a new power that leaves an already weakened Fiona feeling extra threatened, while Cordelia continues to try and get pregnant. Meanwhile, Zoe's still trying to make things right with Kyle -- and while she means well, she may be doing him more harm than good. Also: Nan bakes a cake and Delphine LaLaurie discovers television!
'American Horror Story' didn't begin its original run with series star Jessica Lange as the centerpiece, thought the actress quickly emerged as the dominant force of the franchise through 'Asylum' and now 'Coven.' The monster ratings for FX's Ryan Murphy horror drama all-but-assure a fourth season in place, but will Lange depart the series after that?
Tonight's new episode of 'American Horror Story: Coven' is a bit of a step down from last week's premiere episode. In "Boy Parts," Zoe and Madison try to bring Kyle back from the dead in a riff on the classic Frankenstein story, while Fiona continues her mission to acquire the power of immortal youth, and Cordelia reluctantly uses witchcraft to play God.
We have finally emerged from the dark period of torrid vampire and werewolf teen romances, and the dark days of 'Twilight' appear to be behind us. The new (old) thing is all about witches, a uniquely female character trait that provides both societal commentary and a whole lot of dark fun. Witches are back and kicking ass, and they're making women on TV very interesting.
At long last, 'American Horror Story: Coven' pulled back the curtain on its season 3 premiere "Bitchcraft," unleashing all kinds of new horrors on its FX audience. Along with the witchy premiere comes a brand-new full-length trailer for the season (no more teasers!), as well as the inside scoop on what characters will return, die gruesome deaths, or just plain listen to Stevie Nicks! Are you ready to join 'American Horror Story: Coven'?
The season premiere of 'American Horror Story: Coven' wastes absolutely zero time getting into the sort of wacky, gruesome, utterly insane stuff we've come to know and love from the series. This time around, as the title implies, there's a whole lot of witchery going on, and we've got Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Emma Roberts along for the ride. From the opening scenes, "Bitchcraft" lets us know that 'American Horror Story' is definitely, definitely back.
Though iconic star Jessica Lange remains at the center of the 'American Horror Story' franchise, soon to unfurl its third iteration with tonight's 'Coven' premiere, is the writing already on the wall for season 4? Series creator Ryan Murphy has revealed that Lange will indeed likely return for the next 'American Horror Story,' and already has a role in mind for the new premise.
We're just days away from 'American Horror Story: Coven' conjuring up its dark premiere, the first footage of which has already surfaced, but could the FX horror-drama have the potential to spawn a companion series spinoff, despite changing its setting each year? What season 4 ideas will be previewed with the coming year? Creator Ryan Murphy weighs in, and the results may surprise you.
