American Horror Story: Coven, the newest miniseries in the American Horror Story franchise, will debut on Wednesday, October 9 at 10:00 PM ET/PT on FX. Currently in production in New Orleans, the 13-part miniseries will air Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/PT though January of 2014.
American Horror Story: 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 (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.
Coven features an extraordinary cast including Oscar®, Emmy® and Golden Globe® award winners Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates; Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award® nominated Angela Bassett; Emmy Award nominated Sarah Paulson; Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy nominated Frances Conroy; Oscar and Golden Globe award nominated Gabourey Sidibe; Emmy Award nominated Denis O’Hare; Emmy Award nominated Patti LuPone; Evan Peters; Taissa Farmiga; Lily Rabe; and Emma Roberts. Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto, Tim Minear, James Wong, and Jennifer Salt are Executive Producers of American Horror Story: Coven. It is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television. The first two AHS miniseries, American Horror Story and American Horror Story: Asylum, combined for a total of 34 Emmy Award nominations.
American Horror Story scored 17 Emmy nominations, which tied for the highest total of any program in 2012, and Jessica Lange won the Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Miniseries or Movie. Asylum earned 17 nominations in 2013, which was the most of any program this year.

Evan’s Tate hated Larry in season one of AHS, wonder what his role will be like in this season and how Evan’s character will react to him.
Ryan Murphy revealed on his Twitter account that Denis O’Hare is set to make an appearance in American Horror Story: Coven.
The third season of the hit FX series returns in October. Cast members Frances Conroy, Taissa Farmiga, Jessica Lange, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe and Lily Rabe are set to return with Kathy Bates also joining the cast as a “rival” to Lange’s character.
O’Hare appeared in the first season of the show as the burned man, Larry Harvey.
More rumors are being circulated concerning the show, but nothing is set in concrete.
With American Horror Story’s third installment currently in production, a few details have been leaked about key characters.
American Horror Story producers are looking to cast three different characters, according to a report Friday by SpoilerTV.
The first character producers are looking to cast is Carter, a “small-town hunk” in his 20s. This would be one of the few male characters in the predominately female cast. Thus far, Evan Peters is the only male that has been confirmed to have a main role in the new season. Peters appeared in American Horror Story’s first two installments.
More intriguingly, fans may now know the names of two of the most important characters for season 3. Casting is looking for a 20-year-old version of Gwen, who is listed as the character Jessica Lange will be playing. This could be a temporary name or a decoy, but considering both Lange and fellow cast member Sarah Paulson have talked about getting the first few scripts already, it is assumed that Gwen will be Lange’s character’s name.
Additionally, producers are looking to cast a redhead 20-year-old version of Ruth, the character played by Frances Conroy. One SpoilerTV commenter suggested that producers go with Alexandra Breckenridge, who played the younger version of Conroy’s character in American Horror Story’s first season.
Conroy played a character named Ruth for five seasons on the HBO show Six Feet Under. It is unknown if this character naming is a coincidence or not, but as another commenter suggested, it could be a temporary name through the casting process.
Casting the younger versions of Gwen and Ruth could have something to do with the video posted in late June, which spoiled a plot point involving “youth serum.”
Congratulations to the American Horror Story cast on their nominations. Unfortunately Evan got overlooked again.
The FX anthology miniseries “American Horror Story: Asylum” leads the way at the 10th Annual Gold Derby TV Awards with nine nominations, including Best Movie/Miniseries. It hopes to repeat the success of last season’s “Murder House” installment, which won the top prize in 2012.
Jessica Lange, who won Movie/Miniseries Supporting Actress last year for the first season of “AHS,” competes this year in the lead race for her new role as Sister Jude, while five of her co-stars compete in the supporting categories: James Cromwell, Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, and Lily Rabe; Rabe was also nominated for Breakthrough Performance of the Year for her work as an innocent nun corrupted by a demonic possession.

Notable Role: Tate Langdon in American Horror Story
Peters is making quite the name for himself, which is impressive considering he says he broke into the biz just to meet the Olsen Twins. Regardless, he’s well on his way to become even more recognizable, and not just to people who like to scare themselves silly with the terrifying American Horror Story anthology series, where he played Tate Langdon, the teenage murderer, in the original incarcnation and Kit Walker in the Asylum series. Marked by his uncanny knack for playing crazy, Peters is set to headline the third season of the show, American Horror Story: Coven.
Josh Helman has been added to the growing cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past in a mystery role
While X-Men: Days of Future Past is now coming up on three full months of shooting, The Wrap is now reporting that yet another name has joined the ensemble. Up-and-coming actor Josh Helman, who hales from Australia and has starred in movies like Animal Kingdom, Jack Reacher, and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, is the latest name to join the 2014 superhero movie. Unfortunately the site doesn’t have any information about what character from the comics Helman might be playing, but offers that it’s likely a very significant role, as he is slated to be “on set for several weeks.”
The young Aussie actor joins an amazing cast that mixes together both the actors from the original X-Men trilogy as well as Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class. The plot will center more on the heroes and villains of the latter film, which included stars James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique) and Nicholas Hoult (Beast), but Sir Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Sir Ian McKellen (Magneto), Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Halle Berry (Storm), Anna Paquin (Rogue), Shawn Ashmore (Ice Man), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) will all be back to reprise their roles as well. Newcomers to the franchise include Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Booboo Stewart and Fan Bing Bing.
