The year's ghastliest month just got a whole lot spookier: American Horror Story will make its return to FX on October 9th. The 13-part Coven will focus on witches and witchcraft in the over 300 year aftermath of the Salem witch trials; it'll center on a New Orleans-based coven as they protect themselves amongst a dwindling population.
