American Horror Story: Coven is the third installment of FX's horror anthology series which premieres on Wednesday, October 9. After spending time in a murder house and an insane asylum, the upcoming season examines witchcraft and takes place at a school for witches in New Orleans.

American Horror Story: Coven builds on the history of American witches and witchcraft. 300 years after the Salem witch trials, witches are facing a new increase in attacks. In order to protect young female witches, they are sent to a special school in New Orleans. 

As the season begins, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) is sent to the school after finding out she's a witch. Due to the new threats Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, returns to New Orleans to safeguard the Coven.

FX has released the first video showing footage from the American Horror Story: Coven installment.
