"You girls need to learn to fight. When witches don't fight, we burn."
FX has released a new trailer for American Horror Story: Coven. It's called "Burn," and it features the first actual footage from the series. It gives us our first real look at the plot of the story, and I have to say it looks awesome! I've also included an extended teaser for the Initiation trailer that was previously released.
Jessica Lange plays the mother of Sarah Paulson's character, Cordelia, who runs a small school for witches in New Orleans. The trailer shows that Taissa Farmiga's character Zoe has just learned that she's a witch and is headed off to the school for witches. This is going to be a great season.
Coven also features Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Denis O'Hare, Patti LuPone, Evans Peters, Lily Rabe, and Emma Roberts.
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 (Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (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.
The series is set to return on October 9th!
