We've seen spooky teaser after spooky teaser for American Horror Story Coven, but no actual footage of the new and returning cast in their new roles. Well, wait no more: Jessica Lange is back and looking fierce as all hell in flanked by Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett. Wow.

The new season is set in modern times, and centers around witches. Fingers crossed for totally batshit but fabulous coven uniforms. Here's the synopsis:

It’s been over 300 years since the Salem witch trials. Those who remain are almost extinct and in danger again. A school has opened in New Orleans to teach protection to the young. The long-absent Supreme arrives to also protect the new students and their secrets. The themes include witches, witch hunts, incest, minorities, slavery, mothers and daughters, and witchcraft versus voodoo. This season will be set in modern day and the 1830s.


Series premiere is on October 9th on FX.
