At last! Concrete deets on the plot of AMERICAN HORROR STORY’s third arc, COVEN. We’ve been drip-fed tiny details over the 9 month hiatus, but today FX have released their official synopsis, and it sounds like a doozy! Check it out below, followed by the latest enigmatic teaser trailer and (US) premiere date…
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.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe and Sarah Paulson, and will debut in the US on October 9th. A UK release has yet to be set, but we expect (nay demand!) it will be shortly after.
