American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy announced he’ll be adding two more Award-winning stars to the cast of the witchy installment of the series, now called American Horror Story: Coven. The legendary actresses join Lily Rabe, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Frances Conroy, and Taissa Farmiga, in addition to newcomers Gabourey Sidibe and Kathy Bates (who will play star Jessica Lange’s frenemie). This is the first time AHS will shoot on location. Murphy is promising a more historical bent. The crew has been researching the most haunted locations in America to set the stage for the witch-inspired storyline. Yes, please. [via THR]
