American Horror Story season 3: New trailer released for 'Coven' (Video)

Excitement for the new season of American Horror Story is kicking into high gear. With the new season just a little over 30 days away, we are starting to get more of a feel for what the new witchy season has in store for us. A new teaser trailer for the creepy FX series hit the internet yesterday, and as always is already igniting the excitement of American Horror Story fans everywhere.

The newest peek into the newest incantation of the American Horror Story franchise is entitled ‘Stakes’.

The trailer starts off with the usual calm, yet eerily creepy music we have expected to hear from the creators of one of the most original shows on television. You see three women hanging very tall stakes with a fire blazing just at their toes. The wind is gently blowing through their hair. At first, you start to feel bad for them.

Slowly, the camera starts to turn, and then you realize the terrible truth; things are not always what they seem. You come to realize that the witches hanging from those stakes were never really hanging at all, but floating independently as the fire dances at their feet.

Just when you think that the trailer is over, and you are safe to open your eyes again, each of the witches slowly raises their head and turns their attention to you. For a split second, it is like they are peering straight into your soul.

If you are anything like me, you are on the edge of your seat waiting for American Horror Story: Coven to unleash itself upon the world. Knowing what you already know about the series’ past incantations Murder House and Asylum and coupling that with the return of series staples like Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, and Evan Peters and combine that with the star power of Angela Bassett and the impeccable Kathy Bates, this is bound to be a nail biting season.

American Horror Story: Coven begins on Wednesday, October 9th at 10 p.m. on FX.
