The plot for American Horror Story: Coven, including some character details, has been released by FX (via BloodyDisgusting).
“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.“
Lange and Farmiga are joined by Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Gabourey Sidibe, Denis O’Hare and Patti LuPone.
Episode One, ‘Bitchcraft’, airs on 9 October on FX in the US. You can buy American Horror Story: Asylum on Blu-ray for £25.00 at Amazon.co.uk.
