It has been confirmed that American Horror Story Season 3 is about witches. This has long been thought by fans and internet rumourists but now it is official.
American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy, joined by members of the AHS cast, took the stage at PaleyFest Friday night and revealed that season 3 will be called… American Horror Story: Coven! via EW
Many thought it was going to be a Salem witch story but Ryan also stated that there would be other locations in the mix like New Orleans for example. At any rate you get Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates going toe to toe in a story about witches. Enough said.
