FX has released a new trailer for American Horror Story: Coven, this time giving us our first look at footage from the witch-centric third season of the horror anthology series.  Jessica Lange plays a powerful witch who returns home to New Orleans where her daughter runs a school for young witches, and in this trailer we see Lange dropping some knowledge on the young witches-in-training.  It looks like a fun turn for the actress, and I’m hoping that showrunners Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck have reigned in the focus of Coven after the jarring and muddled Asylum.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer and to check out the official poster.  The series also stars Taissa Farmiga, Emma RobertsDenis O’HareAlexandra BreckenridgePatti LuPoneGabourey SidibeEvan PetersSarah Paulson Frances Conroy, and Lily Rabe.  American Horror Story: Coven airs on FX starting Wednesday, October 9th at 10pm.

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.
