After much deliberation and speculation, the subtitle for season 3 of American Horror Story has been revealed. The Huffington Post confirms with Ryan Murphy that season 3 will be subtitled as ‘American Horror Story: Coven’.
‘Coven’ will focus on witches, a fact long-anticipated by the ‘American Horror Story’ community since Season 2 Episode 10, when ‘I Put a Spell On You’ (Screamin Jay Hawkins) plays on the juke box at Briarcliff for Jessica Lange’s character Jude. Ryan Murphy says that season 3 will center around Lange’s character, describing her as a “glamor cat.”
At least part of season 3 will take place in New Orleans, exploring the witch plotline, and promises more “doozy locales” like The Murder House or Briarcliff Manor from previous seasons.
Among Jessica Lange, several other actors have been confirmed for ‘Coven’ including some returning faces from seasons 2 and 3, along with Academy Award winner, actress from ‘Misery’, big fan of the show, and long-time friend of Lange, Cathy Bates.
