Witchy Women

Season three of American Horror Story will premier October 9th. Subtitled "Coven", the show will take place in New Orleans and focus on the Salem witch trials. According to executive producers, there will be a feminist theme running throughout the season and "a very strong theme of family, specifically mothers and daughters." Additionally, the tone will be lighter and peppered with more humor. Thank god. I had to drop out of last season because I couldn't stomach the brutality. Maybe enough people complained about all the meat hooks and human skin masks. . .

The cast of this season will be star-packed. The almighty Jessica Lange will play a witchy bad ass and Angela Basset will star as a voodoo queen. Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson will return as will actors from Season One, including Frances Conroy, Dylan McDermott, and Taissa Farmiga. Kathy Bates will also be starring as historical serial killer, Delphine LaLaurie and Gabourey Sidibe will have a recurring role, which is unknown for now.

Overall, it sounds like a tasty brew. Check out the promo videos below:
