Emma Roberts to Enter Coven on American Horror Story Season 3

at . Comments

Another impressive name has been added to the casting sheet for American Horror Story: Coven.

Emma Roberts - whose Fox pilot Delirium was not ordered to series, much to the dismay of many fans - is close to signing on for the FX smash, according to TV Line. Assuming the deal goes through, Roberts will play a party animal named Madison.

American Horror Story Season 3 is expected to premiere in October. It will be set in modern day New Orleans and focus on witchcraft, with Jessica Lange once again in the lead role and Kathy Bates set to portray her character's nemesis.

Other new cast members will include Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone and Gabourey Sidibe.

I’m a big Emma Roberts fan, so I can’t wait to see how her “party girl� character will fit into the story. With such a long wait to find out, I’ll definitely be re-watching the second season again with my DISH Hopper. I take advantage of the 2,000 hours of storage space to record seasons of shows so I don’t miss anything with my late work shift at DISH. With all of the room available, I can keep some of my favorite seasons instead of deleting everything to make room.
