The FX horror show American Horror Story: Coven is lifting spirits with the release of a teaser for its third season. The short clip features a white room and a group of women cryptically suspended against the wall.
Watch the teaser below:
Co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed some plot details for the upcoming season at an event for Emmy voters on Friday.
"It really is about the witches of Salem pitted against voodoo witches," Murphy said. "It’s been a centuries-long feud and it’s up to Jessica Lange and Angela Bassett to mend the fence."
Lange, who has starred in both previous seasons, will play Fiona, the supreme Salem witch, and Basset will play Marie Laveau, a New Orleans voodoo witch.
Murphy also promised this season will be a little more playful than the previous.
“It’s much more buoyant and comedic and crafty than last season, which was much darker by design because it was about heavy social stuff,” he said.
The new season will also star Kathy Bates, Evan Peters, and Emma Roberts and will go back and forth between the present day and the 1830s.
American Horror Story: Coven premieres on October 9 on FX.
