After months of speculation we now know that the third season of the FX anthology hit "American Horror Story" will be about witches and be titled "American Horror Story: Coven".
The revelation came Friday night during a panel in Beverly Hills that closed out the PaleyFest 2013 festival. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy shared the title with the audience, adding
"It's a really cool story that we've been talking for a couple years, and this seemed to be the year to do it."
He also disclosed that AHS will be shooting in multiple locations for Season 3 when it resumes production this summer, including New Orleans, after having been anchored to the soundstage during its first two seasons. Murphy promised that the third year would feature "a lot of really cool real locations," and be less of a "sound-stagey show" this year, since the writers have been researching the most haunted locations in America.
Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Kathy Bates, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters and Taissa Farmiga will all star. It will shoot in New Orleans and air on FX this fall.
