“AMERICAN HORROR STORY” Teaser Three: A different kind of suspension

That first AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN teaser, which featured a slew of floating witches facing the wall (and one in the fireplace) was titled “Detention,” noting some sort of punishment of the young sorceresses. Here then is “Staircase,” captioned with “Misbehave and incur our kind of suspension.” Accompanied by that same cover of “House of the Rising Sun,” are we to believe there’s some sort of school or grooming establishment for witches in the New Orleans-set season? Jessica Lange is after all playing The Supreme.

This season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN stars Lange and Angela Bassett as feuding queens, practicing different types of witchcraft. Lange comes from a generation of Salem witches who relocated to the south, while Bassett essays real-life Voodoo practitioner Marie Laveau. The story will apparently take place at different periods of time, and co-stars Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Gabourey Sidibe, Emma Roberts and Lily Rabe.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN premieres Wednesday, October 9 on FX. Find the first two teasers below.
