Apart from some auspicious episode titles this morning, 'American Horror Story: Coven' conjured up its most detailed insight yet with the cast and crew panel last week, at least until now. Head honcho Ryan Murphy has finally opened up about the witchy voodoo showdowns to dominate the coming season, even offering up a few new character reveals!
American Horror Story
Late last week we learned our first real details of 'American Horror Story: Coven' from the cast themselves, most notably character settings and an overarching theme for the new episodes, but now the third season of FX's Ryan Murphy horror thriller has begun to take shape. The first three episode titles of the season have emerged, along with them a potential premiere date!
Just as 'American Horror Story: Coven' gave out a little taste of its third FX season in casting Alexandra Breckinridge earlier today, writer Tim Minear and the cast previewed the next chapter from the ongoing TCA press tour. The more feminist and "fun" season gave way to revealing its witchy major cast of characters, as well as a look into how the New Orleans setting informed this year's 'Horror.'
Details of FX's Ryan Murphy horror-thriller 'American Horror Story: Coven' will emerge en masse later today from the Television Critics Association press tour. But until then, it seems another major season 1 star will return for season 3 this fall. Sexy maid Alexandra Breckenridge will conjure up an appearance in round three of 'American Horror Story,' but do we have any details of who she might play?
It's been a while since we've had any fresh intel on Ryan Murphy FX spooker 'American Horror Story's third cycle 'Coven,' but amid all the new faces, it seems one of its highest profile veterans will return to the fold. The Emmy-nominated Denis O'Hare will return to the franchise after sitting out 'Asylum,' but what role can we expect the former 'True Blood' vampire to take this time around?
In only two aired seasons, 'American Horror Story' has kept notoriously spoiler-tight in the months leading up to its October premieres, even with general directions of the thematic content. The likely witchcraft-centric 'American Horror Story: Coven' has maintained the same level of secrecy up until now, but has a leaked audition tape from 'Arrow' actor Byron Mann spoiled at least some of the potential plot?
Like the previous seasons of 'American Horror Story,' details about FX's upcoming third season of the scarefest 'American Horror Story: Coven' will remain a hot commodity until series creator Ryan Murphy and the network deem it so. Even so, we know that the new season will feature a less overtly dark tone than its predecessor 'Asylum,' so what does series star Sarah Paulson have to say of their witchy new world?
After two seasons of FX's supernatural thriller 'American Horror Story,' we know that series creator Ryan Murphy enjoys switching up the roles of his recurring cast members. Recent CCTV Award-winner Sarah Paulson went from a sly medium in season 1 to a hardened, intrepid reporter in 'Asylum,' so could 'American Horror Story: Coven' paint Paulson as the villain this time around?
Given the success of 'The Walking Dead'-centric talk show 'Talking Dead,' we've seen the same idea applied to 'Breaking Bad' as well, and potentially to FX's sixth season of 'Sons of Anarchy,' but is 'American Horror Story: Coven' next in line for its own post-show analysis? FX CEO John Landgraf thinks it might be, but with one important difference.
Given the notorious secrecy surrounding the series, it could be a while yet before FX's 'American Horror Story: Coven' offers any real look at the scares on deck for season 3. Even so, the Ryan Murphy drama just added some major pretty to the proceedings, casting 'Scream 4' star Emma Roberts for a recurring role!
