american horror story emma roberts 'American Horror Story: Coven' Season 3 may be adding Emma RobertsIs Emma Roberts the latest witchy woman to be joining “American Horror Story: Coven,” the third season of the spooky FX show that just scored six Critics Choice nominations?


TV Line is reporting that Roberts is nearing a deal to join the drama, which will take place at least partially in New Orleans and focus on witches — at least, that’s what fans are inferring based off of the title for the season. There aren’t a lot of actual details just yet.

If she signs on, Roberts will join a hot list of stars who are appearing in “Coven,” including her real-life boyfriend Evan Peters.

Others include new faces Angela Bassett, Patti LuPone, Kathy Bates and Gabourey Sidibe, plus returning members Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange.

Which actors do you think might be the witches and which ones might be the witches’ targets? It’s fun to speculate — we hope youngsters Roberts and Farmiga are best frenemies forever.

“American Horror Story” Season 3 will premiere on FX in October 2013.
