Comic-Con welcomed the cast of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story: Coven for the first time since the anthology premiered on October 2011. The hour opened with a video presentation that highlighted the season in its entirety before the cast was brought on stage. Those in attendance were executive producer Tim Minear and cast members: Angela Bassett, Kathy Bates, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, and the newest actor to join the AHS family, Michael Chiklis. The FX drama is known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to violence and horror, and based on what was discussed in Saturday’s panel, the next installment will be taking that up a notch or two.
The laughs abounded among the cast members and the audience as they thought back to Coven’s most memorable scenes. And while Bates joked that Murphy is quite difficult to work with, the consensus was that the experience had been a wonderful one. There were also some tidbits given of what we can expect from this fall’s next chapter, American Horror Story: Freak Show. Hit the jump for highlights from the panel.
