kathy bates american horror story season 3 paley 'American Horror Story: Coven' is Season 3 title and more detailsThe “American Horror Story” cast and creators were at Paleyfest 2013 Friday night (March 15) where they dished just a bit about what fans can look forward to in Season 3.

First off, the witches plot has been confirmed by the title: “American Horror Story: Coven.” Creator Ryan Murphy says it will deal with “a lot of things, but covens, yes.”

“It’s an interesting season because it’s going to shoot in a couple places, one of which is New Orleans, which is really cool,” Murphy continues. “This is the first year we’ve ever done that. It’s been a sound stage-y show. This year we’re going to go shoot a couple different cities and a lot of really cool, fun locations.”

Murphy says they asked themselves what are the really haunted places in America and says, “We have another couple doozy locales.”

As far as newcomer Kathy Bates goes, Murphy will tease one tidbit — “The only thing I’ll say about the part is, you know, I wanted to see a lot of scenes with Jessica Lange and Kathy Bates going at it, so that’s what you’re going to see.”

And Bates adds, “I’m awfully excited … I was just glued to [American Horror Story] the first season.”

“American Horror Story” returns to FX in the fall of 2013.
