“American Horror Story” season 3, episode 4: “Fearful Pranks Ensue” premieres on FX tonight, where the truce is over.
Fiona’s choices rattle a decadeslong truce between the Salem witches and Marie Laveau. The Council of Witchcraft pays a surprise visit to the Academy with disturbing allegations.
“American Horror Story: Coven” is a horror television franchise created and produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Described as an anthology series, each season is conceived as a self-contained miniseries, following a disparate set of characters and settings, and a storyline with its own ‘beginning, middle and end.’ The first season, subsequently retitled American Horror Story: Murder House, takes place in the present day and follows the story of a family that moves into a restored mansion, unaware that the home is haunted by its former inhabitants. The second season, titled American Horror Story: Asylum, takes place in 1964 and follows the stories of the patients, doctors and nuns who occupy an institution for the criminally insane.
“Coven tells the secret history of witches and witchcraft in America. Over 300 years have passed since the turbulent days of Salem 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, who is harboring a terrifying secret of her own. Alarmed by the recent aggression, Fiona, the long-absent Supreme, sweeps back into town, determined to protect the Coven and hellbent on decimating anyone who gets in her way.”
“American Horror Story: Coven” Season 3, Episode 4: “Fearful Pranks Ensue” airs Oct. 30 at 10 p.m. ET on FX. Take a look at the sneak peek below.
