American Horror Story Season 3 To Be Titled...

by at . Comments

Prepare yourselves, TV Fanatics, for American Horror Story: Coven.

Ryan Murphy and company closed down PaleyFest 2013 last night with the reveal of the Season 3 title, along with other scoops and tidbits related to that drama's return to FX this fall.

Bates. Lange

Look for the series - which brings back Jessica Lange in the main role and will also feature Kathy Bates as her character's arch rival - to be set and filmed in modern day New Orleans.

"The fun thing is researching what are the really haunted places in America, and we have a couple doozy locales," Murphy said, adding that Bates will portray a "bad, bad woman."

Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson and Taissa Farmiga are also confirmed for Season 3, which will focus on "a lot of things," the creator teased - but will also keep coming back to its leads:

“I wanted to see a lot of scenes of Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates going at it, so that’s what you’re going to see.”

With Kathy Bates, I feel as though this season could outdo past seasons.
