IBTimes TV spoke with IBTimes reporter Amanda Remling about the season premiere of American Horror Story: Coven, the new cast, returning actors, and Ryan Murphy's creepy show teasers. [SPOILER ALERT]


AHS veteran Jessica Lange will return for her third season, this time playing Fiona -- the Supreme witch of her generation. Fiona runs a school for “exceptional young ladies,” a.k.a witches. The school is located in New Orleans, home of voodoo and the destination for witches running from Salem many years ago. Other reappearing actors include Sarah Paulson, Even Peters, Taissa Fermiga, Denis O'Hare, Lily Rabe, and Frances Conroy.


Oscar-winning actress Kathy Bates is a very exciting new addition to the AHS cast, playing Madame LaLaurie, based on a real-life socialite with a pension for murder and torture. Other new additions include Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Emma Roberts, and Gabourey Sidibe.
