FX’s American Horror Story has a history of grabbing eyeballs (sometimes literally) through steamy sex scenes, bizarre imagery and bold color schemes; the new teaser for the upcoming American Horror Story: Coven has two out of the three. The new season takes place partially in New Orleans, and centers on witches (obviously), which we get a glimpse of in this highly-stylized “Initiation” ceremony.
Season three of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s horror anthology stars Jessica Lange, Emma Roberts, Denis O’Hare, Alexandra Breckenridge, Patti LuPone, Gabourey Sidibe, Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, Taissa Farmiga, Frances Conroy, and Lily Rabe. American Horror Story: Coven airs on FX starting Wednesday, October 9th at 10pm. Hit the jump to watch the teaser.

Here’s the official synopsis for American Horror Story: Coven:
American Horror Story: Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of the Salem witch trials and those who managed to escape are now facing extinction. Mysterious attacks have been escalating against their kind and young girls are being sent away to a special school in New Orleans to learn how to protect themselves. Wrapped up in the turmoil is new arrival, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga), who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona (Jessica Lange), the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hell-bent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.
