Ryan Murphy has created the perfect TV drama to showcase the best female actresses around.
American Horror Story: Coven continues the tour de force work of Jessica Lange, the "supreme" witch of a coven of witches set in New Orleans. She is electric in every scene.Last year's American Horror Story: Asylum saw Lange as sister Jude, another character that held her own with another acting lion, James Cromwell.
Great news for us fans of the series! FX orders a fourth Installment of American Horror Story. The networked has ordered a fourth installment of 13 episodes.
"Put simply, Ryan Murphy is a master television producer," John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions, said. "Time and time again he reinvents the form...Every year, they create a riveting and brilliant new miniseries. AHS: Coven is the best yet, and I have no doubt that the next installment will be even better."
And alum (from season one) Connie Britton, currently on "Nashville," is rumored to be coming back.
