Talk about an EFFING AWESOME surprise addition to an already-INCREDIBLE TV series!
There hasn't been too much news about American Horror Story since it was announced that the upcoming third season would be subtitled Coven and premiering Halloween night this coming October, but now that series creator Ryan Murphy appears to wrapping up production on Glee and The New Normal for the year, he's ready to start sharing news about the FX horror anthology!
And this one is a squeal-inducing DOOZY, as Precious herself, Gabourey Sidibe, will be joining the witchy-ranks alongside Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga and Frances Conroy!
Ryan announced on Twitter today:
Thrilled to announce Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe is joining the cast of "American Horror Story: Coven."

AH-MAY-ZING AH-MAY-ZING AH-MAAAAAY-ZING!
We're so happy to see her land on a new show, especially now that The Big C's last season is beginning tonight!
She's our FAVORITE on that…and something tells us that she's quickly going to land that status in whatever form she shows up on American Horror Story!
Keep the AWESOME news coming, Ryan! We are TOO psyched!
