FX has been pretty tight lipped about exactly what Season Three of AMERICAN HORROR STORY was going to be all about. We knew it had to do with witches and was in New Orleans but beyond that, nothing else was being let loose.
Tonight we have the plot synopsis for episode one titled BITCHCRAFT.
A young girl, Zoe, is shattered to discover she possesses a strange genetic affliction tracing back to the dark days of Salem. Zoe is whisked away to Miss Robichaux’s Academy for Exceptional Young Ladies, a mysterious school in New Orleans devoted to safeguarding the few remaining descendants who share this unique bloodline. Harboring a secret agenda, Fiona Goode, the most powerful witch of their generation, returns to town, reigniting old rivalries with the Coven’s deadly enemies, the Voodoo.
Just to reiterate the show debuts October 9th and stars a stellar cast that includes Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Frances Conroy, Gabourey Sidibe, Denis O’Hare, Patti LuPone, Evans Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Lily Rabe and Emma Roberts.
Gonna be a great season!
