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!

Via SpoilerTV, we've learned that the first three episode titles for the third cycle of 'American Horror Story,' dubbed 'Coven,' will be "Bitchcraft," "Boy Parts" and "Replacements, The," according to a FOX press website. Not only that, but the associated dates with the titles place the 'American Horror Story' premiere on October 9, a bit earlier than last year's October 17 debut.

So, what can we gather from the titles? Well, apart from the known incorporation of witchcraft, the titles certainly seem to connote the sense of humor we've heard would return in the third season, contrasting the dreary darkness of 'Asylum.' It also stands to reason that 'Coven' might incorporate some form of surgical/longevity theme, as the latter two titles fall in line with an earlier leaked audition tape that seemed to reveal certain 'Coven' plot points.

Elsewhere, we know that the third season will be set in the modern day across several cities, primarily New Orleans, and will occasionally dip back into the past as the story requires. ‘American Horror Story: Coven’ will also welcome newcomers Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe, along with returning franchise regulars Jessica Lange, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckinridge, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters.

We'll bring you the latest from 'American Horror Story: Coven' as it unfolds, but in the meantime, what say you? Are you looking forward to the next go around Ryan Murphy's twisted horror landscape?
