My winter warmer, aside from a harem of blonde Speedo models, is a cuppa and a good box-set marathon. American Horror Story is a Ryan Murphy anthology series, comprised of stand-alone seasons. The first two award-winning instalments are atop the list of my television favourites and I'm beyond excited for season three - Coven. Here are my three reasons that you should be too!
Lily Rabe, Taissa Farmiga, Evan Peters (swoon), Denis O'Hare, Francis Conroy and Alexandra Breckenridge (swoon) are back again, but my true excitement comes from new additions, Gabourey Sidibe and Angela Basset.
Awareness of the region's history turned up heinous events, ripe for inspiration. Kathy Bates plays a modified-for-television version of Delphine LaLaurie, a socialite who murdered and tortured black slaves at her New Orleans mansion. All reports of her crimes are stomach-turning. It will be interesting to see how this adaptation plays out in a modern setting.
Across the first two miniseries, the main plot-points lay on female characters and it looks like Coven will be sticking with this set-up. So refreshing to see.
American Horror Story Coven is set to premiere on and will reach a shady streaming site near you shortly after.
OK, so now I'm excited! You?
