A new trailer has recently hit the internet for the newest incantation of the American Horror Story franchise, Coven.
This trailer is slightly different than the previous ones. This time, we actually get to see quite a few of the series’ stars.
The trailer begins with a group of women dressed eerily the same, presumably a number of the younger witches in the Coven, are walking down the sidewalk towards a unpretentious white house.
As the scene shifts, we see Evan Peters’ character sitting quietly in the window.
The girls make their way up the front porch steps as you see Cordelia, played by Sarah Paulson, open the door for the girls.
We’re not even going to discuss the animal head on the floor, or the women floating around the pillars.
When the scene shifts again, we see series regulars Taissa Farmiga and Jamie Brewer, who are best known from the first season of American Horror Story. Farmiga played the Harmons’ disturbed daughter Violet, and Jamie Brewer portrayed Addie, the daughter of the Harmons’ nosy neighbor Constance.
Also in the group of girls you see one of the newest additions to the cast, Gabourey Sidibe.
Then, we come to the big reveal of the trailer.
As the girls head into the main room of the house, we get our first real look at three of the story’s main characters; Marie Laveau, played by Angela Bassett, Madame Delphine LaLaurie, portrayed by the phenomenal Kathy Bates, and led by Fiona, the Supreme of the Coven, who is being played by AHS staple Jessica Lange.
I know I have said this before, but each time a new piece of the puzzle is released I crave more and more every single time.
This is one of the things that make this show so great. Everything they do leaves you wanting more.
I am very interested to see how this story unfolds. There is so much real life history behind the characters in the show, as well as the city that they are in. It will be interesting how Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk balance fact and fiction in this season.
I think this season has the potential to be the best so far in the American Horror Story franchise.
Have a look at the trailer, and see for yourself.
American Horror Story: Coven debuts on Wednesday, October 9th at 10:00 p.m. on FX.
