First Pictures From the Set of 'American Horror Story: Coven'


American Horror Story: Coven is currently shooting in the French Quarter of New Orleans. Location shooting means that once the crew rolls into town, there is only so much secrecy executive producer Ryan Murphy can maintain. Luckily, some intrepid New Orleanians were able to snap some photos from the set.

The photos don't really reveal much more about the plot than we have already supposed. Jessica Lange appears to be leading a gaggle of girls like a line of ducklings. Those ladies are Emma Roberts, Jamie Brewer (who played Lange's daughter in season one), Taissa Farmiga, and Gabourey Sidibe. Dressed in black, with big black hats (modern versions of pointy witch hats?) it certainly seems like Lange has a bunch of young witches under her tutelage.

According to the photos, they are shooting at the corner of Dauphine Street and Toulouse Street. That pink building with the green doors is the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Archive. This probably has nothing to do with the story; I doubt they are shooting inside the archive. Fun fact: this intersection is about half a mile away from the infamous LaLaurie house, which may be inspiration for part of this season.

So let's hear some of your theories!
