‘American Horror Story’ season 3: Coven releases creepy new poster

AHS Coven Black

Only the people behind American Horror Story, one of the creepiest shows on television, could find a way to take a sexy make out session and totally bring the creepy. FX released the official art for American Horror Story: Coven today and it is definitely just as creepy as it is sexy.

Coven has one of the most impressive casts on television today with people like Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Angela Bassett, and my personal favorite, Academy Award winner Kathy Bates.

In August at FX’s TCA Press Tour, Executive Producer Tim Minear explained that this season will be just as mysterious and creepy as we have come to expect from American Horror Story, but there will also be a little more humor.

This year is a drama, but there is a lot of humor. We are embracing a kind of velocity and fun with the series this year,” he says. “This is going to be the most friendly place for women on television this year. Friendly, until we do the things we do.” ~ E! Online

Last week, FX Networks released their official description for American Horror Story: Coven, finally opening their chest of secrets and letting us in on some of the details for the upcoming season.

“American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.”

I have said it before, and I will say it again; every single time that something new gets released, whether it be a new trailer, poster, or the smallest of details about the new season, I get drawn deeper and deeper inside the mysterious spell of the American Horror Story legacy.
