PaleyFest: 'American Horror Story' Announces Subtitle


kathy bates jessica langeAmerican Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy is notoriously tight-lipped about upcoming seasons of the hit FX show. But he can't stay that way forever, and at this weekend's PaleyFest in Los Angeles, we got the biggest clue of what to expect for season three: the subtitle.

Ready? "Coven." "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," said Murphy during the panel. Previously he had talked about how he wanted to do something "classic" with a bit of "romance." Witches seem to cover both those desires.

The series, which will star returning actors Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, and Frances Conroy, along with new cast member Kathy Bates, will shoot on-location for the first time. Murphy has said that he has already picked out a few "haunted locations" in New Orleans. He also hinted at a potential "companion piece" to AHS: "It would be really cool to do a couple of different incarnations of the (American Horror Story) idea... but I can’t talk too much about it."
