Aieeeeee!! Just reporting this terrifying TV news has our pulse racing!!!
Ryan Murphy sat his totally talented self down in front of Emmy voters on Friday and divulged a whole bunch of super scary American Horror Story: Coven deets!
For one, Jessica Lange will square off against newcomer Angela Bassett. They play the Salem and voodoo witch queens of New Orleans, respectively, and neither one is to be trifled with!
"It really is about the witches of Salem pitted against voodoo witches. It's been a centuries-long feud and it's up to Jessica Lange and Angela Bassett to mend the fence. The witches are really sort of a great allegory and metaphor for any minority group that has been persecuted and has had to go underground and, finally, is like, 'You know what? Dammit, no. We're fighting back,' so that's what they do."
Wow!!! Sound like a nail-biter to us!!!
The Glee creator continued:
"The witches of Salem, the smart ones, got out very early and they were none of the ones who were burned. They all gravitated toward New Orleans, where they now live, and every generation has a great witch who has the most powers of them all, and that's called the Supreme. Ms. Jessica Lange is the Supreme."
And we're certain she and her bubbling cauldron will be stunningly spooky!!
Coven and it's fab new cast will cast its spell October 9th on FX!
