American Horror Story season 3, entitled American Horror Story: Coven, has released it’s supernaturally spectacular new trailer and let’s just say it’ll probably send shivers down your spine. The trailer, “Detention,” is quite short but it definitely gets the job done and sets the stage for what’s going to be a bewitching season.
The teaser shows several girls in a white room, and they’re floating with their foreheads pressed against the wall — as if they’re in a time out. On the American Horror Story YouTube channel, the teaser was published with the caption, “This October . . . Lift your spirits.” We know that this upcoming season will feature witches, so this trailer leads us to believe that there’s definitely going to be some eerie, eerie, potentially disturbing, magic and witchcraft going around the city of New Orleans.
The show will “zoom in on a major face-off between witches of Salem and voodoo practitioners, the third season will explore both present-day characters of the show and real historical figures of New Orleans back in the 1830s.”
Executive Producer Tim Minear, while careful not to reveal too many secrets, says of this season: “I think some of the bigger themes this year is oppression of minorities of all kinds and within that idea, the idea of minority groups going after each other and doing the work for the larger culture. There’s a very strong feminist theme there, there’s also themes of race and themes of oppression and a very strong theme of family, specifically mothers and daughters.”
This season of AHS will feature the always amazing Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates (who’ll play historical serial killer Marie Delphine LaLaurie), Angela Bassett, Emma Roberts, and Gabourey Sidibe. We’re so excited to see where this season goes and as more teaser trailers are released we’ll be sure to send them your way.
