American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over three hundred years have passed since the turbulent days of Salem and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe, who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona, the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.

Coven featured an extraordinary cast including Oscar(R), Emmy(R), and Golden Globe(R) award-winners Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates, Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award(R) nominee Angela Bassett, Emmy Award nominee Sarah Paulson, Oscar and Golden Globe award nominee Gabourey Sidibe, Emmy Award nominee Patti LuPone, Emmy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Frances Conroy, Emmy Award nominee Denis O'Hare, Tony(R) Award nominee Lily Rabe, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, and Emma Roberts.

Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Dante Di Loreto Tim Minear, Jennifer Salt, James Wong and Brad Buecker are Executive Producers of American Horror Story: Coven. It is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
